Weekly Blueprint

Hello everyone, I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! Ours has been so relaxing...we had dinner guests last night, I went on a nice long run, and otherwise we've been doing lovely holidays things like buying our Christmas tree, decorating the house, and addressing holiday cards (Laurel and Violet make a great assembly line!). I have a quiet moment now, so wanted to drop the Weekly Blueprint early, and also wish those who celebrate a very Happy Hanukkah!
