Nnnope, not our actual home. (I do not hate myself enough to go move house right after giving birth, and then returning to work.) Im talking about our new BLOG home! (but apparently I hate myself enough to move blog domains, which is actually pretty close in stress as the real deal.) But, enough about how much wine I drank to get me through this blog move, come along, step inside and get comfy..I LOVE that you came to visit…
So, welcome! Yes, this is my new space – my very own self hosted space. (proudly shows big girl panties off to the crowd) Its been a long time coming – no really, it has. Not only did I take far too long to to actually just take the leap and get it done, I kind of dilly dallied also for a good couple of months (a year) to go live after actually acquiring my own space. But being tired & preggers and then giving birth has that effect,no? So believe me when I say, I am super chuffed that we are all finally here today.
Getting here sucked just a tiny little bit,though. Lawd knows how many bunches of hair I’ve pulled out during this migration– and trust me, postpartum hair loss doesn’t need any help! I had to learn a lot on the fly, and really had to summon up the old coder/developer in me to get things moving in some places. (its been almost a decade since I last touched code, ok!) And I am so grateful to the helpful folk on the FB bloggy groups – thank you,good people of FaceBook!Not to mention, a few lovely bloggers who took the time to review my first draft.(thanks guys, you rock!)
Anyhoo, here we are…please have a look around. Take the royal tour. Make yourself at home –press all the buttons and links, and tell me what you think. I would really like it if you did! Bear in mind I am not 100 percent satisfied with everything. There’s a lot that will still change in the future. Like, a lot! (The Family Header image, for one! [it’s missing one little Coconut!])The whole look, in fact. But I kinda crushed on this template that a dear friend shared with me almost two years ago – even though it’s SO not my usual preference of clean lines and simplicity. But it was bright and cute, and I liked it. I really liked it. I mean, I didn’t fall inlove with it you, know? I wouldn’t marry it…But I would totally date it…See how far things go.. 😉
Which I guess is what Im doing right now. I just keep reminding myself that it’s all just a work in progress. There’ll be more once baby is bigger, and our life as a family of five becomes a little more routine again. In the mean time, I’m embracing this brighter & busier look. So, whadya think? Oh and if you enjoy my blog, please be nice and subscribe (again)? I’ll love you till the ends of this earth for that! (An especially big please to those of you who’ve only just recently signed up! I see you. I thank you. I appreciate you. And would love for you to continue the journey with us over here in the new space!)
Here’s to new beginnings! (Because apparently having a new baby isn’t enough of a new beginning for me.) 😉 X
