THIRD EVER 5 on Friday

I'm linking up for my third ever 5 on Friday.
I got married last Wednesday on July 31st, 2013.
We had a dock wedding, you can see more pictures here.
We cut our cake on Venice Beach, in Florida.
It was such a memorable beach day. We're about 20 minutes away from this beach, and we have a tradition of going to Chic-Fil-A and getting a chicken salad sarnie and sweet tea every time. This time we had cake for dessert, and watched the sunset over The Gulf.
Making memories!
Well, I'm all about chocolate cake, so I had the smallest slither of the cake, and sure enough after a few days...I opened the fridge and my newly wedded hubby had finished all but one small slice.
Ha ha.
I have booked my trip to Europe in September!
I'll be staying with my mum and sister in England for about fifteen days, in the countryside home I grew up in. We're planning on visiting some stately homes. We did that a lot when I was growing up. Apparently, the Diana, Princess of Wales exhibition at Althorp is about to close next year. But I'll be there two weeks late for this year...
They open from Diana's birthday, July 1st until the date she died, August 31st.

I'd probably be in tatters anyway.
But, I'll see old high school friends, and then take a trip with my sister to Germany, for my dad's memorial service. He died in May, a week before my birthday after a two and a half year battle with pancreatic cancer.
 I volunteered with children whose parents are going through cancer for about two years. It was so absorbing, and those children melted my heart. So when I saw this adorable girl, made me really reflect.
Call someone you miss today,
or send a letter to grandma...
Tell someone intentionally, that you love them.
Because, after all life is about making memories, and that's the only thing you can leave behind that's worth anything.
A toddler who has more than 100 blood transfusions and a bone marrow transplant before her first birthday is back at home after an amazing recovery. Please pray for baby Ava Maye Riley-Maher.
Here's a recipe I had to share:
Pancakes made in muffin tins. Only fill the tin 1/2 full and it will create the crater when it bakes. Fill with fresh berries.

Have a happy weekend y'all.
