Looky, Look, Look

If you are the observant type...or you just plain read my "under construction" post, you might have notices a change in the old bloggity blog look here at Living and Loving Every Minute of it.

Back in the beginning of January, when I was in the depths of my "woe is me...my blog sucks....my photography is boring...." phase, a good blogging buddy came to my rescue.  The Nap Warden read my lowly whines, and offered a simple solution that might cheer me up. How about a bloggy re-design? She is a great designer, and illustrator (and blogger, for that matter), and she offered to help me out with a design that would showcase my photography.  What a lady!  Her simple offer really did lift my heart, and give me a sense of bloggity purpose.  

My new look offers me the ability to change my header, if I feel the need (still loving my sticker girl, though), and gives me more room to show off my photos.  There is a navigation bar at the top which houses some of my old sidebar stuff, and the rest is found at the bottom.  Like anything new, it might take me a bit to get used to, and I might find some things that I need changed, but for now....I'm just so pleased with the results.  

Thank you Nap Warden!  Everyone else....do me a favor and check out her work.  She rocks!  I'm definitely NOT in a funk anymore.  I have my photo mojo back......I've Pumped Up This Party, and I have a new look.  Who could ask for more?

Well....maybe I could.  I'd like some peace and quiet when I'm trying to capture a lovely frosty scene on my deck in the morning.  Instead......not 7 seconds after I shut the door, I hear a noise....and turn to see this:

Miss Peanut Butter toast face can hardly stand that mama is outside without her. It is coooooooold out there....but she just has to be part of this moment.  I turn back to my frosty leaf, try to concentrate on my camera, and hear a squeaky rubbing sound.  Yup....she is rubbing her slobber off the window now.

I diligently try to ignore her antics, and get back to my photos, but seriously........who can resist THIS:

She wins....I go back in, help her get her boots on, so she can join me. Why did I even try. 
We all know if it's worth doing....it's worth doing TOGETHER!

Very nice!!!! Love the new look! I personally think photography based blogs look best with one column. The photos just pop more with less distraction on the sidebars.

Your new look is gorgeous, Corey! And it's much easier to read on the black background too. I love how large the photos are now - so easy to see clearly! :)
