Weekend Roundup

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful week! I'm so loving the holidays this year; it's been delightful to send and receive cards, bake and distribute cookies (so far I've made #1, #4, #7, and #10 on this list...all awesome!), get festive with the kids, and reflect on 2014 and think about work and nest projects for 2015. And if you're looking for a little holiday spirit, there's no shortage in this roundup of 29 events for your weekend. Enjoy!
