Where Did The Time Go?


How’s everyone doing out there? Here in Chicago,which I am sure you had heard, we got hit pretty bad with snow last week. The aftermath just did not make it fun to navigate the city. I think I was able to sculpt my calf muscles climbing over mounds of snow walking to and from work. Here’s to a less snowy week!



Where do I begin? I took a much needed bloggy break to focus on my blog’s new look and next thing you know we are almost half way through February-where did the time go? Things have been pretty hectic around here and still is. February will be a pretty busy month for my family and we are expecting a HUGE change-more on that soon!


So, here it is, my updated blog look-ta da! You like? After studying and researching many successful  blogs, I decided that a neutral, simple, sleek, background was the way to go. I liked this idea.  This way, my posts and pictures can stand out more without any distractions.


There are also a couple things I do want to tweak on my blog still, but nothing overly dramatic, but this is definitely a good start. I feel way better going with this design than my last one that I pretty much did on my own being a newbie and all.


Expect the frequency of posts on this blog to gradually increase in the next month or so. My goal is to go back to my original frequency which was three times a week. Thanks for those who continue to read my blog and stick around! And for those who just tuned in, welcome!

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure how people would respond because it has no bells and whistles to it as you can see, just a simple black and white palette 🙂

  2. Yay! Your new design looks very clean and sophisticated. Looking forward to more posts 🙂 and no more snow. Please, no more snow!
