Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

Christmas Week + Weekend Roundup

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Poor Laurel was hit by a weird (thankfully brief) bug, but we still were able to enjoy time with friends and family. I'm looking forward to downtime this week and on that front, wanted to share a Christmas week + weekend mashup (in lieu of a separate Weekend Roundup on Friday). Enjoy, and also be sure to enter to win this $250 gift card to the AT&T store on Boylston Street
