hello 31…



Yep, it's my birthday…today I'm saying hello to 31! I'm hoping to give myself an early day, break out the confetti, and sneak off for a cupcake or birthday treat. In the meantime, stay tuned in a few hours for a fun treat for all of you…a behind-the-scenes look at one of my favorite brands…
