new digs

You may notice a few differences around here! For instance, a bit of a blog makeover! It deserves its own dedicated post since physical home makeovers have been very unsuccessful lately [more on that Thursday]. And if I'm being honest, I'm in love.

Even when I had my previous "new" header I was never 100% in love. And time wore our relationship down as it tends to do. My tastes changed and we were no longer a good fit. I felt weighed down and noticed I was holding myself back from doing certain things out of embarrassment. Ridiculous? Maybe. But this was really overdue and now I feel like my bloggy outwardness matches my human insideness. Picture me throwing out my nerdy scrunchy for a streamlined headband. I'm obviously very up to date on my fashionable headwear trends.



There are still a few things that need to be tweaked. A color here, a photo there. But I have to say I'm so satisfied. I was planning on a really big makeover. But I didn't want to spend $500 and get something I wasn't satisfied with [and I'm painfully picky]. Just when I was giving up I found a template that fit all of my needs - and I wasn't even looking for a template! I used Robyn and I couldn't be happier with the design, customer service, and timely manner in which I was helped.

This is what it looked like before:


And if we really want some awkward silence... here it is all the way in the beginning.


Yikes! Talk about some awkward teenage bloggy years. Even google is happier with the change and my page speed has increased. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Feel free to explore and let me know if you find something incredibly wrong.
