Your Daily Reminder

Over the weekend, I bought a new phone. The calendar on this one is a little more intense than my previous phone. It gives an enormous amount of options for the reminders. Yes lovely. I set reminders about everything. ♥ ♥ ♥ I spoke with a friend yesterday, and as soon as we hung up […]
