Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! My wonderful brother-in-law is visiting so our weekend was filled with tasty treats and meals, hikes, beach fun, and time with friends. I'm so grateful! Meanwhile, it's crazy that it's actually feeling a bit like fall, complete with spotting acorns and fallen leaves on the ground this morning when I walked Vi to school -- gah! Technically, though, we've still got some weeks of summer left and here's a great roundup of fun things for you to do this week. Enjoy and share!
