A New Look & Some Good News

What do you all think?? Pretty different, right? 

I guess I don't need to tell you all that we've swapped the Simple Kind of Life layout for a cleaner, brighter, fresher look. I've been working with Kaelah from Lil Chief Honeybee for the past month to create this new design and I must say I'm so excited that it's finished! I'm loving the new look and I hope that it will bring me motivation to make the rest of the blog better, too. I would highly recommend Kaelah if you are interested in designing (or redesigning) your blog. She was so great to work with - easy going, super accessible, and creates great work. Check out her site here and you can see some examples of her blog designs.

There are still a number of things that I plan to be working on over the next few weeks, so bear with me. I need to finish or update a number of the pages and new features so just know that the blog will just keep getting better and better. 

In other news, I have my pictures back!! I went to the Apple "Genius Bar" after work today armed with my laptop and external drive and within minutes the tech had my iPhoto library back. I can't tell you how excited I was. The thought of losing every picture I had taken over the past 6 years was pretty daunting. I had never used any sort of Apple tech support before, so I'm really impressed with how easy and fast they were.

Between the iPhoto problem and getting the new blog layout setup, this week was a bit slow on the blogging front. I'll be back to my regular blogging tomorrow and be ready to share some DIY fun next week. For now, enjoy the new look and be prepared for bigger and better things over the next few weeks.


  1. YAY on your photos!! So happy for you!!

    I am LOVING your new layout/blog look!! I need to get mine done, I will have to check your designer out! :)

  2. Thank you so much! Kaelah was great. I highly recommend her. It's always nice to have a fresh change and mix things up a bit. :)
