Rainbows...to brighten your day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Mine can be summed up in one word:  happy!  It truly was a happy weekend full of food, friends, fun, and giggles!

Rainbows, in any form, instantly make me happy.  Since my son's new favorite word is "happy" and he said it all weekend, I took it as a sign that today would be perfect for this.  :)  I hope the following get your week off to a beautiful (and happy!) start:

Love rainbows, in all forms... especially sprinkles. Was going to include that word in my blog title, but everything was taken already!!

Your son is very cute and what an incredible picture!

Thank you for your comment today; I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject, so if you have time (and can remember)- Yes, please share!! :)

Last but not least, I wanted to share a couple of "rainbow" (one is not actually rainbow colors, as you will see) cakes/cupcakes I've made after seeing the [amazing] rainbow cake picture a while back...
