As the Creator & Editor of Inspirations & Celebrations, I believe in the “live what you love” philosophy. Because this year marks the 5th Anniversary of I&C, to celebrate this momentous occasion – over the past few months, we’ve been passionately revamping the I&C website, which I’m excited to finally debut!

The new site is responsive (making it easy-to-view on tablets, desktop computers, and smartphones), and simpler to navigate and browse through content. We’ll continue improving the site over the next few months, so stay tuned.

We hope you enjoy the new I&C website and would love you to leave comments below. Thank you to all of you for your continued support, kindness, and love. Your sweet messages inspire us everyday!

Now, let’s get back to the giveaway…
