              Love the quotes
              I really love these kind of things!
              I was at this site where they had all these motivational and inspirational refrigerator magnets and I got a bunch of them. They were really cool with funny original sayings like “obsession is not a hobby” (i got THAT one for sure hahaha) :)
              …and things about love and friendship too.
              I gave a lot of them to my friends and co-workers for christmas, they loved them:)
              I will get some more for Valentines Day. They had lots of them about love:)
