Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I was mostly offline (save posting here and recreationally on Instagram!) on vacation in Maine since Wednesday and it was a lovely visit, filled with time with friends, paddle boarding, lobster rolls (I had 3 over the course of my trip!), shopping, beach time, runs by the ocean, and gorgeous sunsets. I'm grateful for so much, including returning to work today! Let's kick things off with the Weekly Blueprint. Enjoy!
