Weekly Blueprint

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day! I enjoyed a super chill and lovely day yesterday, including many of my very favorite things: sleeping in, a lovely breakfast prepared by Jon and the girls, a run, lots of coffee, then supporting local artists at West Medford Open Studios (including purchasing a gorgeous piece from my incredibly talented friend Sheila).
