When I was in South Africa I witnessed a lot of animal lovin’. Some if it was not quite appropriate to share here… but some of it was cute!

So whether you’re spending your Valentine’s Day cuddling up with a backpack, a book, or another human being you care about… enjoy some cute and cuddly African wildlife!

I conveniently cropped out the jealous ex-lover so it would seem sweeter 😉

But I guess we should live in reality….. He’s there! —>
