And just like that.. I am 27!

Each birthday I really like to sit down and reflect on the past year to acknowledge all of the highlights from the year both personally and professionally. Being able to look back on the past year, and see all of the incredible things that can happen in such a short amount of time, really gets me excited to dive into another year of life with endless possibilities. I am overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude for all that I have been blessed with as I head into this next chapter. I got to spend a full week with family leading up to my birthday, and yesterday my amazing fiancé (!!!) treated me to the most relaxing Spa Day at Auberge du Soleil in Napa to celebrate.

Rachel Allan gifted me this incredible gown for my birthday. It is hard not to feel like a princess in this exquisite gold mermaid gown from their Fall 2018 Prima Donna Collection. It was only fitting to photograph such a show-stopping gown at the most epic castle, and one of my favorite wineries, Castello de Amorosa.

Thank you guys for the outpour of love and well wishes on my birthday today and thank you for taking the time to read this post! My readers are one of my greatest gifts and I feel so fortunate to have connections with so many of you amazing women because of my blog!! Have the best Sunday, loves! xo
