Happy Birthday To Me & The Blog!

Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, kind words, and love through this journey. I've met so many wonderful people, made new friends, and pushed myself creatively. It has been an amazing journey and I look forward to what year two will bring! Cheers!

I love cobalt blue dresses, I think the color is super flattering and eye-catching. Then, with the intricate lace detailing on this dress, I immediately knew that I wanted to wear this for my birthday and blog's one year anniversary! I hope you love it as much as I do. 

I have the most amazing friends! They laugh at my jokes, listen and put up with my ridiculous theories, and spoil me rotten! For my 25th birthday, they surprised me with the cutest and yummiest cake in the world. If you don't know, I am obsessed with sushi and they got this sushi cake made for me. Isn't it the cutest cake you've ever seen? And it tasted as good as it looked! ;)

Thank you to everyone who spent this past Saturday celebrating with me in Napa. <3

The gorgeous cake was baked by Amanda Nguyen of Just BAKEcause.
