Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.

Your enthusiasm and grace will be missed now you’ve moved to London (*sob*) but I’m excited to have a new penpal and a new part of that beautiful to city to visit. Cardiff’s loss is London’s gain – knock ’em dead, kid. Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.
