Blog of Change

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.

  1. You'll get there Lori! Sometimes the changes we seek out happen more slowly than we'd like..but know that you're always moving forward, even when you don't/can't feel it! (Yes, I'm reminding myself of this too!) :) xo
