Happy Weekend! I finally finished writing my latest book, Unstuffed, this week, which means that this weekend I’ve got big plans to do absolutely NOTHING! I can’t even tell you how good it feels to have that off my plate, especially because I’m so happy with how it turned out. I can’t wait to share it with you all! I think we may try to go blueberry picking this morning, but other than that, I am looking forward to a whole lot good old fashioned rest and relaxation! What are your plans for the weekend?

But now on to the good stuff…..here is what I loved this week:
