Links I Love Week 16

This week I celebrated my birthday in Chicago. I hadn’t had much planned besides a long walk with Henri and carrot cake. It was filled with unexpected surprises and I loved hearing from friends and family through phone calls and texts. I really felt the love this birthday. 🎂 I am so excited to be launching the new EDP site this week. 🥳 It has been so much hard work not only by me, but every one of the designers and developers I hired. I will share more details on Tuesday when the site officially launches. You can see a sneak peek here.
