Last night, I was planning to go to bed early. I signed into Blogger to write and noticed something I have noticed many times: a new design button. I've played with it before, but I didn't want to mess with my blog. It was pretty. I liked it. But every time I would see that new button, I kept thinking about it.
On a whim, I decided to change the look of it, make it more me, lighter and carefree, like what I write about. Why not, right? Change is good. Three hours later, it was a mess. It looked plain-Jane and like it had been bathed in antiseptic. And I hadn't backed up my previous template because I wasn't aware of how to back it up. I was devastated. Well, that might be a tad over-dramatic, but really, I don't have a lot currently going on in my life and I'm very proud of my little blog. I slowly add it to, tinker with it. It's not quite everything I want it to be, but it's getting there.
After a hot bath and good night's sleep, I worked on it more today and it's somewhat better. One of these days, I'll hire a professional to make it exactly what I want it to be. But that's down the road. I want it to be French, feminine and beautiful. A retreat where one can escape. Much like I want my apartment to be someday. In the meantime, this is in a state of metamorphosis. Just wanted you to know so you aren't surprised if you come back at a later date and it has changed once again.
