Blackberry Gorgonzola Salad w Mixed Berry Vinaigrette_LYK6

It’s FRIDAY! We made it! You deserve a cookie. I know I do. This week has been straight up grueling. I am fairly positive I have 4 jobs right now. It’s only a season of transition so I’m trekking, but I’m excited for the day when I can streamline all of it into one.
