new month, new look

Happy May everyone! Some of you may have already noticed the fresh look around here. After much contemplation, I finally moved the good ol' blog from blogspot to my website. I had no idea when I started the blog back in 2007 that it would be anything more than me just sharing random bits of life. For those of you who started reading way back when, thank you! For those who have just recently stumbled upon here, thank you! I love sharing and connecting with all of you and am so glad I finally have the ability to easily respond to comments. Though I won't be able to respond to each and every one, please know that I read all of them and they definitely brighten my day. Love hearing your feedback and opinions. I said earlier that I moved the blog over here, but really I had very little to do with it. Being somewhat technically challenged when it comes to complex stuff like that, I cannot tell you how happy I am that June Lily is around. They made the transition seamless, and were able to salvage every single post and comment! I cannot recommend them highly enough. Check out June Lily for a list of services.
