New Year, New Look

Come check out the new blog look! I am so excited about it. About a year and a half ago, I decided my new favorite color was Tiffany Blue. I re-did my great room in Tiffany Blue and brown and just love it. I got itchy to update my blog the same way.My thanks go out to Tracy from Design By Tracy for doing my last blog look. She helped teach me about “branding” and gave me the knowledge on how to do code for all of the buttons and such. Thanks so much Tracy!The cute feet you see belong to Brinley–the photo was taken by Serra at Candid Memory. Serra has long been our photographer and she is absolutely amazing.I made all of the buttons and  headers and I am so happy with it all. Facebook and Twitter match as well (though I haven’t used Twitter in a long time…some day it might happen 🙂 ). I hope you enjoy the look as much as I do!
