    Blogland Love is So SWEET ! I have been lucky enough to meet some wonderful blog friends in the “real” world too and it is such a treat. Who knows, maybe the Queen will be out MN way some day…
    As for ice cream dreams, when I was a kid the ice cream shop near us always had Tiger Tail – orange ice cream with black liquorice swirls in it. I have found that flavor for a long time now so I guess that would be my dream ice cream…
    I hope you have a weekend filled with ice cream dreams, Lovely Rachel !

    You are absolutely right. It is a wonderful thing to meet blogfriends. Last january I met a bunch of them at the blogcamp Julie orgnized. Talking till wee hours, endless cups of tea, creativity bouncing off the walls and a lot of beautiful pictures since there was a surplus of cool photographers. My heart still sings when I think of that special weekend and I am glad you could share such a yummy icecream with your blogfriend and create an unforgetable memory.
