Wonderfilled weekend

Well hello there! It's been a week since I posted though it feels like longer. This week has been busy to say the least and extremely emotional for my husband and I.

One of our very dear friends lost his 8 month battle with liver cancer. Yesterday we said farewell along with his friends and family with a loving ceremony and wake. We will miss you Mark, more than we know just now.

I'm about to head off to Mt Tamborine to deliver and set up a cupcake tower for a bride and groom and just waved goodbye to 60 of these pretty lilac blossom cupcakes to a sweet 18 year old celebrating her birthday.

Then tonight, off to movies in the park with some friends, oh and I have just been informed that on tonight's menu (for the adults) will be crab tartlets for entree, Vietnamese Chicken salad and macarons for dessert. My mouth is watering already. To wash it down ...... nothing but Verve baby!!!

Whatever you are doing this weekend, do it with passion and love every minute of it.
