Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Ours was such a lovely blend of family and friend fun, including Violet discovering (and Laurel rediscovering) the immense fun of the Perplexus (original for Vi, epic for Laurel). It was so great for them to have a fun activity that challenged them both (given their big age gap). Highly recommend you look into those! Meanwhile, if you're looking for something to do this week, enjoy the Weekly Blueprint and don't forget to check out the 29 Cool Things To Do in February roundup!
