Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! We enjoyed a lovely one and I've been reveling in the fact that this summer has been so different and wonderful for Laurel regarding camps and things. I hope to find the space to write more on that soon. Meanwhile, welcome to a new week and another packed edition of the Weekly Blueprint (including lots of free picks!).
