First on the agenda my uni friends: these guys are the greatest people you will ever meet. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing these legends for almost 10 years now (feeling so old 🙈)  and we’ve officially passed the friends for life mark. Needless to say we used the excuse of mine and Matt’s travels for a get together 🍹🍸🍾  and had a jolly old time in the second city: Birmingham.

Will miss you guys ❤️

Cati 😊
