Fresh Starts + Fun Lists

So as you all can see the blog has a new look. I have been dying to simplify it somewhat, give it a more mature but equally whimsical face lift...and after hours of slaving over it yesterday here we are. I have been debating making the switch to Wordpress...but for now this change will tide me over until I have the money to do so! 

So what do you think? I am in love with it...the neutral colors, and muted pink make me swoon, and the header is actually my hand writing! So it is all one of kind, and totally me I think! I am pleased, and now I need to sleep for a few days. Staring at a computer for hours on end zaps me!! 

Because I spent oodles of time yesterday working on this design, and tackling numerous coding issues...I neglected the Community Brew, so today I am catching up on all your lovely posts about marriage, replying to comments and emails and finishing up design orders before we head to the beach with my family in a few days! So bear with me, you all mean so much to me, and I want to get back to each one of you! 

In the meantime here is a fun list of things going on in my neck of the woods...(stole this from the lovely Rachel of Our Yellow Door)
