What's your favorite handwriting font & how do you use it?

Handwriting fonts are so handy for bringing some spirit and authenticity to your projects. I stumbled upon the free version of a font called Summer—and it's become a fast favorite of mine. I used it most recently in this PPT download because I found it to be whimsical without being too cutesy or precious. 

What are some of your favorite handwriting fonts (free or for purchase)? How do you use them in your projects?

As a fellow font hoarder, I'm so glad I saw Montse's Filmotype Brooklyn. It's a beautiful font that I'm sure will be my new favorite. Although not free, it was well worth the price.

I like Yummy Cupcake as a free font.

Not free, but one of my favorite script type handwritten fonts is Pony Tale Pro.

Hi Jeanne:

 LOVE Architect's Daughter.

 Drat you, e-learning Heroes!

 Now I'm destined to waste away much of my morning browsing lovely fonts! :P

 So let's open up the Pandora's Box, shall we? (no, not the FONT, just the non-scripted one)

 Here's a list of Handwritten Font Samples from Font Squirrel:
