Oh the memories

I received this yesterday and to be honest, I can't put it down. It's full of beautiful memories and is beautifully written. So many places I remembered that I'd completely forgotten about. My only complaint is, that even though it covers absolutely everything, it leaves you wanting more and not in a bad way either.
