New Year, New Look

So it seemed like time for a change with the blog, especially since my whole life will be changing, and the sorts of things I write about here will change along with it. I played around with a new template and colors and background picture. Honestly, I really didn't find anything I LOVED, but this looks fresh and happy so I'm good with it for now. You probably can't tell, but the picture behind the blog is one of those where you are looking far down a road until it disappears at the horizon. It seemed appropriate for our upcoming Road Adventure.

Also bought some new make-up today - I'm kind of a minimalist with the stuff and I never buy expensive brands so it's a semi-annual trip to Walgreen's for me.  I'm feeling a bit haggard, so I thought I'd spruce myself up to go with my spruced-up blog. If I look a LOT better, I'll have hubby take a new profile pic :-)

Oh! And I posted a little map that RVPainter drew that shows the first 6-8 month leg of our journey drawn out. It's down toward the bottom of the blog.

  5. Oh how exciting, I can't wait to follow along on your road trip. That's something on my wish list, I'd love to do exactly what you and your husband will be doing, and hope to someday. I think the new design of the blog looks great.

    Also glad to hear you are working on a sequel to the Christmas Village. I know that will be on my reading list! :)

  7. Paul - thanks - I like it too - it feels lighter and happier, which is how I'm feeling too.

    Julie, I couldn't ignore the requests for a sequel, but didn't know if I had an idea and I want it to be just as good - no BETTER than the first ... but then I got an IDEA, so I am going to run with it. Love having your company on this adventure...

    Stephanie, I think there will be no end of material as a result of this trip! Thanks for being there with me..

  8. I'm a new follower, so I can't comment on the blog change, but this blog looks great. And new make-up is always fun for a pick up, I think. ; )
