I can’t tell you just how excited I am to be in Perth right now. Breathing in fresh, crisp air and pouring cold water out of the tap, that you can drink is just too much. Not to mention I get to wear cardigans. Far too much.
Todays goals: wear socks
Weekend goals: make a big batch of this and watch continuous Netflix.
