Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was a really lovely mix of activities and down time, and was also notable in that we turned the heat on for the first time, broke out the winter gear (yikes!), and made the first lasagne of the season yesterday night (yum). Bundle up and stay warm today (my hands are still frozen from my run!), and I hope you enjoy this collection of events in the Weekly Blueprint! Have a great week!
