What Do You Think?

So ladies (and err gentlemen?), what do you think? :)

Wonderful right! This whole new blog look is just a breath of fresh air to me. It's like a wonderful spring cleaning for the blog but in August. HA! I had just been having the "too much clutter" feeling both in real life (aka my house) and on my blog. I knew that it was time for a change.

Franchesca over at Small Bird Studios did it for me. I am simply in LOVE. She wonderfully answered each of my 1000 emails (swear to God that I probably sent that many...) and we ended up with the bit of joy that you are looking at now. :)

It's funny, I started with one thing in mind but once we got going I ended up with something completely different! I would have never have guessed in a million years that I would have picked gray and yellow for a blog look but once I got poking around all those wonderful Etsy digital shops, well one thing led to another and here we are!

I seriously couldn't be more proud right now. I almost have that feeling you get when you are holding your brand new baby in you arms and showing him or her off for the first time.

I write this blog partly for myself and the outlet that it gives me but also as a gift for my husband and children. I want them to be able to look back at this endeavor that I've committed years to and think to themselves "This is how much she loved us." If my blog can be down right gorgeous to go along with all the stories I publish well then that's all the better. It's my way of prettily wrapping my gift to them. :)

I love you Bobby, Graham, Grady, and Griffin! This is for you!

Love the new look. Not colours I would usually pick either but they turned out great. Also love the photos of all the family on the right hand side!

Love it and your sweet post!! Now, I feel guilty that when my husband and kids looks back on my blog, Nathan will know I was excited about being married so I can pull the plug on him should the need arise and Grace will know all her ditziness was on the interwebs for the world to enjoy. And Max will feel neglected. Well crap.

Do love the new look, though!!!
