Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I've been full of reflection and gratitude, as a large group of elementary, middle, and high school friends assembled for a remembrance gathering for one of our beloved classmates. It definitely made me look at Laurel and her incredible group of friends in a different light... Meanwhile, let me move on to regular business; here's a wonderful roundup of things to do this week.
