Fortune Cookie Fortunes

fortune cookie fortunes | Sarah Celebrates

Hello there =)

I’ve been sharing my fortune cookie fortunes on Instagram and Facebook for a while now.  In the spirit of 52 Lists 2015, I decided keep one big ole list of all the cookie papers I share.  As I share get new fortunes I will update the list.  They’re in alphabetical order (ish) and if there’s a number after the fortune, I’ve received that fortune that many times.
