Hey I like your style! I would have LOVED for Joan Baez to play at my wedding!

Thanks for the tag. I'm a bit behind of them so I'll add it to my list.

On a side note, your recipes and photos are DELICIOUS (literally and figuratively)! You should seriously consider playing PhotoStory Friday tomorrow with one of these (if, of course, you need a post and want to)!
