Honey I’m home! @FrenchTeam #Worldcup #AllezLesBleus #FiersDetreBleus

I absolutely cannot wait to receive the @FrenchTeam jerseys that I’ve ordered for my wife and I. I picked up the home kit with the WC 2018 badge (gold on gold), and I got her the away toile de jouy one :)

In addition to moving to our new apartment, the next few weeks are also full of concerts: Kid Cudi, Phoenix, and Pusha T. Very excited!

Finally started Andor and… it doesn’t disappoint!
