Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! We had a lovely one; it felt so relaxed even while including art, home painting, pumpkin carving, soccer, a 9-mile run (what?!), a fancy dinner with friends, and watching Jon and Laurel play at an open mic event. It was a little hard to get rolling this morning but I've got my coffee and am ready to dive in. Let's do this thing! First up, the Weekly Blueprint. Enjoy and share with a friend!
