Weekly Blueprint

Hello everyone, I hope you're having a great holiday weekend! We're wrapping up some truly wonderful time in gorgeous Rockport (you can see some beautiful views on my Instagram feed) and also have been celebrating Laurel's 11th birthday today (oh. my. goodness. 11 years!) so I'm dropping the Weekly Blueprint a little early since I'm not sure where I'll be tomorrow morning.
