Best Moments of 2013: The Birth of My Son

I don't usually get personal on my blog but as the year draws to a close and I reflect on the moments that made 2013 such a special year (a few of which are featured in the Statigram above), I feel compelled to share a few things with you guys that I haven't had time or presence of mind to share sooner.

Holiday Dressing at H&M

Holiday Dressing at H&M

Although Christmas is over, New Year's is right around the corner! H&M provides affordable, trendy fashion for both casual and formal holiday looks. H&M stores are overflowing with sparkles, chunky jewelry, holiday knits and gorgeous heels. I highly recommend shopping in stores - the selection is endless!
