Welcome 2016 : New Year : New Look

Welcome 2016 : New Year : New Look

Hello There!

I’m sorry if I have been flying under the radar since the holidays. As you know, once Christmas hits- it’s holiday mode- checked out. I’ve been working on this re-design with my fabulous designer Ready to Blog. I wanted to wait until these changes were complete to start posting again. A fresh start.

Please excuse the dust, things are still being checked, changed, evolving etc. But I am happy you’re here. I’m happy it’s 2016 and I’m ready to get started on the new year. Please take a look around and let me know what you think! (also if something is broken). Thanks again for being a reader, friend, family and part of my blog. I appreciate you all.

    Really love the clean design! How long did it take to implement the new layout?

    • January 12, 2016 / 7:57 pm

      It took about 4 months! Quite a process, but I hired a designer to implement most of it, so I’m not sure how long it would take indiviudally
