I'm done, hopefully


Looks like we finished most of what we've been working on. I hope I didn't build this thing up too much, it's not like I'm having someone completely rewrite the layout, just a few tweaks to hopefully better suit my content.

It's always hard to do things like this, not just because we're not pros here and our schedules don't allow to using up lots of time to play around but also because I realize a lot of this is for all of you guys, my awesome viewers! I don't say it enough but I really do appreciate each one of you who faithfully tune in and allow be to continue to do something I enjoy.

I have some really minor things to finish up, spacing and what not but I think I'm going to breathe a sigh of relief knowing I can move on to other things like, oh, organize my kitchen cupboards! I realize also that I completely missed posting my handmade/vintage favorites but I'll have a new set this week, I promise!

Also, how many of you out there Pinterest? I considered adding a tab for that but maybe it's not worth it. In case you do, here are my boards. It's quite addicting and a lazy way of bookmarking and cataloging images.



Yesterday we walked over to my favorite bakery and decided on a mini Tiramisu, pictured above behind the text and this chocolate filled thing. Really, really good, do I even need to say that?

Jeremiah grabbed a cinnamon roll muffin and I'm guessing he enjoyed it equally as much because I don't remember seeing him take it from the bag and inhale it.

I love his toggle jacket, I'm jealous of guys' clothes sometimes.

Oh, and the mushrooms! Our good friends are organic farmers who also happen to grow these. Wish I could tell you all of their names but I just can't. All I know is that the black ones are best, just a little butter and garlic. Mmm.

  4. I love it! I am in the process of doing the same thing, which I may have already mentioned that. I always get stressed, and it ends up ok. I think the black designs go perfectly with the look of your blog:) And that donut thing looks to die for too!

  6. Congrats on the updated site. It looks great. I agree the minimalist format really works and makes for easy reading. I'm also considering a new blog design but wonder where I will find the time to do it.

  11. I'm jealous of ... your treats!
    So tasty!

    And yes, why does blogspot make any edits to the design so difficult? What blows my mind is how hard it is to keep everything streamlined. Shouldn't simple be the default?

  15. I had to hop over to your blog to see the changes as I'm a Google Reader subscriber. Lookin good! And you should definitely add a Pinterest tab. I think it's growing. I'm on there and love the ease of saving photos and that is automatically links them to the source for you. Those mushrooms look amazing. I love a good mushroom. Yum.

  22. I too love your new look! I actually looked to your old site as inspiration for my own. Thank you;) It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one a bit frustrated by the "time suck" that is trying to work on a website when you don't know what you are doing. I reached a point when I just had to say it's good enough!
