Birthday Festivities

Rebecca Dale Photography Today is my 25th birthday!  24 was a good year for me.  I quit my job, started a social media consulting company, began blogging full time, traveled to Paris and Palm Beach, made new friends, met inspiring people, accomplished a ton of my goals, and started looking at engagement rings!  There were ups and there were downs, but I learned so much from each experience.  I’ll be going into more detail about those experiences + lessons I’ve learned in my New Years post so stay tuned for that. These are a few teaser pics from the C.Wonder holiday entertaining post that will be going live tomorrow. Isn’t December just the best month?!
