Neapolitan Cupcakes

Welcome back to WEDDING WEEK – Day 4! (I just got butterflies typing that because it means there is only one whole day left until the BIG DAY!) I am happy to report that wedding prep is going extremely well and with any luck Britta’s wedding eve will simply be a chance to relax and reminisce before the chaos ensues. :-) We’ve checked the weather forecast and there is a CHANCE of showers on Saturday so I’m asking everyone within the sound of my typing to join me in this chant, “Rain, rain go away!” But honestly, I’m not worried. Even if it DOES rain…it won’t dampen the joy that this day will bring. This day when two best friends will take each other by the hand and embark on life’s greatest adventure….marriage.
