First things first! I'm SO happy to present my blog's new look created by Melyssa of the Nectar Collective, whose portfolio can be found at her design website Bumble & Buzz Design.

She is wonderful to work with and very talented and I'm beyond happy with the new look!
The redesign itself was a gift by my lovely best friend, Crystal, of The Happy Type, and I'm taking it as a way to start things anew with my blog. 
I plan to update it much more consistently from now on. I found with the job I just quit (working as a reporter) that after writing all day, the LAST thing I wanted to do at night is write more... but, great news! Now, I'm unemployed! (Wait, what?)
And I'd also like to take this opportunity to stop being such a lurker on other blogger's sites, and actually start interacting a lot more with all the other awesome writers out there. Baby steps!
Of course two other life goals are to get an actual job and find an apartment. We'll see how those go. 
I've added facebook and pinterest pages in addition to a twitter account and email for the blog and you know a pinterest account means business.

You'll also notice new sidebar categories, but I can't promise when I'll actually have something in the DIY section. Let's say when I move into my apartment? Yeah, that sounds good.
See you again soon!


  1. I love the new look, boo!!! I can't to not only be able to talk to you daily, but also read your incredibly witty commentary on life.

  2. Thanks, love! You're like my blogging mama bear.

  3. I'm so glad you like it, Katie! I had a lot of fun making it and love the colors you chose. I also have to admit that at times when I needed to test things from your old blog, I would get stuck reading your entries and then forget why I was here in the first place. You're a really great and entertaining writer!

  4. Popping over from Melyssa's Twitter to say that this is a very cute layout! :) And how kind of Crystal to gift you -- that lady is just amazing! :) And I look forward to reading more!! :)

  5. Thanks so much, Erika! And Crystal is indeed an amazing lady. (P.S. I've been a lurker on your site for the past couple of weeks--it's really great!)

  6. Why, thank you KT! I love lurkers!!! :))) Haha... I've been known to lurk myself (or unknown, since I guess lurking is all about, well, lying low...)
