Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! I am still recovering from the aftermath of an epic cookie party + my Girls on the Run team completing their 5K yesterday, and I'm seriously getting excited for holiday break. As much as I love work, I also love the holiday slowdown! But before we get there, how about a fun roundup of events for your week? So much great stuff going on -- enjoy!
