Weekend Roundup

Happy Friday everyone! I apologize for being light on posting this week. I was in Chicago for a couple of days to serve as part of the media team to kick off a really wonderful charity initiative and my editorial planning went a little off the rails since I wanted to make up time away from the girls when I returned. Anyway, enjoy these 21 weekend events, lovingly curated for your consideration. And be sure to check back for the April vacation mega-roundup!
