I know you guys are still reeling over how to top the Coudal folks with their awesome Valentine’s video. Here’s a little help. I found these awesome Valentine’s Day graphics on Reddit for you to send along to your significant others. You’re welcome.

Apparently you've read through all of the note cards. Good work.
