Love over Fear: A Valentine's Day playlist

Just whipped this up on Spotify and wanted to share! It's a playlist of my favorite (love over fear) songs. Inspired by this Taking Risks in Love article in the NYTimes, The Phone Booth and my short career as a flower girl in all my parents' friends' weddings.
