Friendship + Fa La La (Last Minute) Favorites

Blogging has brought so many beautiful new friends into my world! I feel so grateful to have such a strong support system at such an early stage in my blogging life. It’s been absolutely KEY for me in every way, shape and form. Angelle is one of those miraculous relationships (thanks to Instagram c/o Ruthie Ridley). She’s a spark of light, passion and pure spunk. Her blog, Dashing Darlin, is always full of inspiration…I just love following her (do yourself a favor). We recently connected INL (in real life) for the first time and let me tell ya, no one would’ve ever guessed it! The first of many, I'm sure.

★ What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it. ★

★ It's the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate the journey ★

Below, I’m sharing my Fa La La Favorites for you last minute shoppers, along with a few of the photographs I shot of Angelle!
