Valentine’s Day Dappers

Happy Valentine’s Day! For all you anti-Valentine’s Day readers out there, I apologize right now, but I am the ULTIMATE sucker for romance. So, I’ve asked some of the dapper couples we’ve featured over the past couple of years and some of our blogging allies to share their warm and fuzzies with us. Wait! You must first set the mood. Tom Jones, anyone?

Did you hit play? Are you ready? Ok, go:

Shereen and SkylerWe’re #TeamSkyreen
