Happy Friday, friends -- the very last Friday of 2012! How is that even possible? What are you doing this weekend? Our plans with some family friends fell through, so our calendar is open. We'll see what the weekend brings. Thank you so much for the sweet words about my grandfather. He's going to the doctor today to get the results of his CAT scan, and I know my whole family appreciates your positive thoughts. Have a great weekend, and here are my favorite finds from the wonderful Web...
