Since Jessica, our wonderful Editor-in-Chief, could not come up with anything for this particular editorial note, we found it appropriate to commandeer this space to publish the fact that the release date of this Celebration Issue coincides with Jessica’s birthday. Happy Birthday Jess, and thank you for the passion and hard work you have dedicated to Blueprint! To all our readers, we hope that this Pick-Me-Up brings you joy amidst the snow, slush, and tedium of work. Life is highlighted by each moment of celebration, so find something every day to celebrate.

    The Blueprint Editorial Team
