Pure Perfection

Well, if you're just now stopping by after the weekend things might look a little different to you.

Take a minute. Scroll up and down the page. It's okay, I'll wait while you take it all in.

Yep, I've got a brand spakin' new blog design. And friends, I'm head over heels in love with it.

When I first started blogging, I used the pre-made templates and played around. But as I got more serious I really wanted something that looked more put together. So, last year I had Ashley of After Nine to Five design me my first custom blog layout. At the time it was perfect for me. It was what I wanted and reflected who I was.

But we all know that we are constantly growing and changing. And as I grow and change, so does my little blog here. And as I embark on a new journey in my life come July and start a new chapter, I feel like the blog is too. And it was only right that I give it a makeover to reflect where I am in my life.

It's fresh, bold, fun and full of life. Just like I feel right now. And it will continue to have some new little changes on it in the following weeks and/or months - as I still have several things I want to add to it.

I didn't do any of this myself. I must give credit where credit is due. My bloggy BFF Kelly of Living Apockylypse did every bit of this for me. And here's the kicker, she did this for fun. For me. How lucky can a gal get? I keep telling her she has a natural talent for it and I'm trying to nudge her to think about doing some of it for income. I know I would have paid her good money for such awesome results.

The fantastic thing about Kelly doing my re-design is that she knows me so well. We talk almost every day, whether it be Gchat or text or email. Even though we've never met 'in real life' I swear we are sisters of another mother - she knows me so well! And I think that truly reflects in this design. And, she's super patient -- because I might be kinda, sorta indecisive from time to time.

So, from the bottom of my heart, a huge THANK YOU to Kelly for giving me this gift. I'm so excited about it and the other changes we have planned. And I hope all of you love it as much as me!

P.S. I have new buttons as well! So, make sure to grab one or be expecting an email from me with the new one if we are swapping.


  1. I love it so much! The design is perfect!

  2. She did an amazing job! I love it!

  3. You are so very welcome, sweetie!

    I loved doing this, every single minute of it! You are the best friend a gal could hope for, so I was glad that I could do something like this for you. But most importantly, I was so happy that you love it so much!

    Thanks for being my guinea pig in the 'designing for others' department. ;)

  4. This looks amazing!! You did so well, Kelly!!
