El Arroyo Book Of Signs [Sneak Peak + Giveaway]


If you follow us on Facebook, you may have noticed that I'm a huge fan of El Arroyo signs. You can imagine how excited I was when a friend of mine gifted me the El Arroyo's Mini Book of Signs a few days ago. The book's sitting on my desk and I start every day with a new sign. When I need a laugh throughout the day, I simply turn my head to the left and - there's my sign.
