Happy Birthday to Me!

sophia coppola for lv

Where has the last year gone? It has truly flown by, but I am so grateful because my 27th year was a wonderful one filled with personal growth, new discoveries, travel, a new puppy, and some amazing opportunities. Today marks my 28th birthday and I am hoping that this old adage will ring true this year: “May the best of the past be the worst of the future”. Here’s hoping!
