Valentine's Date 2016

For Valentine's this year Mike and I made a playlist of the greatest hits of our relationship. It was my turn to plan something, so we went and got some delicious take out, ate it by Fourth of July star candlelight, and then each of us had 15 minutes to chose one song for critical moments in our relationship. Then we compared notes and Mike put together our top songs in a very well engineered table, shown below. I love this playlist! It was so fun to go over our memories and why each song represented that era of the relationship for us.
