The Week in Review - A Costume Wedding

Good morning from Maine where I'm getting ready for my friend Josh's wedding later today. Since Josh and his fiance are fun-loving people and it's October, they've turned their wedding into a costume party. It should be fun for everyone.

As I do every weekend, I've put together a list of the most popular posts of the week. I do this to help you get caught up on interesting things you might have missed during the week. Creating the list also gives me an idea of what you might want to learn more about in the coming weeks.
