My weekend with Ari Seth Cohen

Friday, hooray!

Wishing you all a very happy Friday and a wonderful weekend.

I hope you:

Laugh a lot
Eat something delicious
Pat a little, fluffy dog
See a dolphin
Ride a unicorn
Feel amazing
Win the lottery (at least $500,000)
Have an icecream
Get a compliment from a stranger
Find that pair of shoes you’ve dreamed about in the $10 bargain bin
Stop and smell the roses
Don’t get stung by a bee.


Okay. I think this is my worst post ever. I will try harder next week. Gorgeous picture of Tutti though. And seriously, don’t get stung by a bee. Those little fluffy black and yellow bastards will hurt you! And they won’t apologise, either.
