A New Look For My Blog



Hello Everyone!


Notice anything different? LOL! After a lot of deliberation and self doubt I realized that I needed to change the look of my blog. I had put my old template together but I knew after some time that It needed a professional edge that my pathetic attempts could never seem to master. I knew I needed to find someone who could take my blog baby and make it better. I don't know about you, but that idea was so scary for me. Yet, I need not to have worried because with a bit of research and intuition I found someone that listened to me and turned my wishes into reality. I am forever grateful for Tawni (Thank you!), from Forever Design Studio and highly recommend her to anyone needed her services.


Now that my blog has been madeover I will start blogging again and I hope that you enjoy the new look and that you come back and visit often.

  7. It looks awesome! I really liked the graphics in your old design but it was much to full and the font was a little hard to read. This one is much cleaner and neater to look at. Great! :D

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
