I hope you have all had great weeks and are looking forward to the weekend. Mr D’s folks are down visiting from Scotland so we’ll be eating and drinking and catching up, but I am also hoping to get any last minute changes made to the new website since IT IS GOING LIVE ON MONDAY! I am really excited and can’t wait for you all to see it.
We have another bumper crop of articles and photographs for you all here. I have started following a few wedding blogs since I have several friends getting married next year and am really excited for them – so you’ll probably see a few wedding dresses creeping in to the round-ups from now on. Have a have wonderful weekend all!
