Good morning Pictures, Images and PhotosHappy Friday everyone! Do you all have wonderful plans for the weekend? Takin' the critters Halloween trick-n-treating? I think I will cuddle up on the couch with my better half and watch a movie...Now If I had my way it would be a scary movie....we'll see.

Today we are going to check out Rosemary, which is known as the herb of remembrance. It is used in aromatherapy treatments to invigorate and stimulate the mind, body and spirit.

Rosemary used to be handed to wedding guests to symbolize the bride and groom's love and fidelity....maybe we should do that in today's sometimes unfaithful on friends...
