You win some you lose some
Happy days
Super simple
Off you go
Quick and dirty
Highly appreciated
And we have a winner

The best things in life are free
Cute as cute can be
You have a boyfriend, what the hell!

Thank you for always saving my ass
Dance like no one is watching
Can of worms
Size matters

    I am excited to follow your adventures during this year and I hope you’ll love Sweden as much as I loved living in the US.
