Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was full of kids, kids, and more kids between a belated birthday sleepover for Laurel followed by taking Violet to a (giant) barnyard birthday party for a friend. At which point I learned about Polish chickens. Apparently, it's never too late to learn something new!
