Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Our mojo was completely and utterly off on Saturday, but a day in Gloucester with friends (+ the creative therapy of making this crazy adorable watermelon hedgehog for the occasion) yesterday made for an awesome recovery. I can't believe summer is almost over! Good luck with your back to school transitions and if you're looking for something to do this week, enjoy this roundup via the Weekly Blueprint:
