Ready or not, Valentine's Day is on its way!

For my Valentine's Day Instagram post, I plan to force my poor boyfriend to wear the "I love you" shirt he made me when we were in high school — and we will take ALL of the cute couple photos.

Often, the hardest part of posting on February 14th is coming up with cute Valentine's Day captions for Instagram.

I just can't decide which one would be the best fit for the picture. Instead of coming up with sweet captions, mine always sound like they're coming from a four-year-old. Or worse, I end up accidentally sounding like a weirdo.
