Doesn’t that photo above just sum it up? It sums up everything really, even as someone who is going to devour cheese over cake, something about wedding cake and dessert? They’re  a little magical!

Maybe it’s the joy of an upcoming wedding in my life, or knowing that trips are planned, excitement over engagements is being had and adventures are unfolding (that one is Ms Harlequin who is currently living it up in L.A!) that is making this Friday all the more sweet for me, whatever it is, I am pretty sure we’re in for a good weekend! How about you? What are your plans for the day ahead?
