The Icing in the Cake

when you finish watching, make sure to go check out melody @ her sweet & saucy shop [your taste buds will be stoked you did]. thanks melody, for making the best red-velvet cake to ever cross the threshold of my face.

and jasmine, thanks a million for your friendship & for the occasional favor ;) and, though it has been stated a thousand times in countless other blogs & personal conversations, i can't help but say, you are fabulous.

and, of course, THE woman that lets me be me, and still chooses to stick around. carlie renee davis, you are it for me. i love you more than words... that's why i thought a video might work.

enjoy.
