We’re not crying; you’re crying! #GovLove 2023 has officially ended, but while we process the heartbreak, let’s relive our favorite memories, shoutouts, and love notes from our federal agencies, programs, and individual superstars.

The third annual #GovLove took us back to our school days of delivering paper valentines to classmates. From February 13 to 17, Performance.gov partnered with agencies and programs to spread some love across the government. We sent, received, and saw heartfelt DIY social media posts shared all week to highlight our federal workforce’s incredible public service. Thank you to all of our many participants and collaborators who have made this our most engaging GovLove yet! Now let’s look back at some notable #GovLove shoutouts from Twitter and LinkedIn. For a complete look at all valentines shared this season, check out the #GovLove hashtag on Twitter and Linkedin!
