Weekly Blueprint

Happy last week of September everyone, I hope you had a great weekend and managed to get a look at the supermoon last night! Jon was out of town but my weekend with Laurel and Violet was filled with family and friends, yummy food, and lots of time outside, so that was pretty wonderful! If you're looking for something to do this week, look no further than the Weekly Roundup! Enjoy, and it would be delightful if you'd share the post with a friend!
