So what’s in store for your Memorial Day weekend?  My big weekend plans include a batch of cupcakes for the neighborhood get together.  Most likely to include blueberries in some form or fashion.  A morning out at the beach with my favorite sand castle builders.  And a fresh coat of paint for my home office.  Something light, bright and inspiring!

Wishing you a safe and happy Memorial Day!  I’d love to hear what you’re up to this weekend!
