A NEW LOOK

Over the past few evenings I've decided that I don't have enough to do and I have re-prettied the blog.

When we started, the header was photos of Lauren. That was great except she got older and I have a hard time looking at photos of her in the weeks leading up to her first surgery (I'm trying to work on it, but I have overwhelming guilt when I think about her being in pain and me not knowing). I made a new one when I learned to use Adobe Illustrator with Illustrator 101 from Nicole's Classes, but I felt like it was missing something. During one of my many struggles to fall asleep I thought that the most obvious symbol to represent Lauren's journey would be a stitched heart. She has the obvious physical marks to show what she went through, but Matt and I also have marks on our hearts.

So, a redesign was called for. I am also working on a website for She's A Miracle Shop (that is still a work in naptime progress) because the accessories are now carried in four stores (what, what!) so I figure they need their own site. I figure this new look is like taking the sweatpants off of the blog and getting jeans on it. (Ironic that I'm doing that while rocking my XL men's sweatpants.)

Lauren also has a new look. Last night we tried pasta for the first time, fully expecting it to be a huge flop, but she loves it! We now have one successful solid mealtime food (Timbits and Ritz crackers are not dinner foods... or at least, they are not supposed to be).


I don't think she's going to thank me for that photo when she's older.
