First I want to say (once again) thank you so much for all of the well wishes and congratulations regarding my new job and this exciting time in my life. I'm becoming more and more excited each day and it's so encouraging to hear all the positive things each of you have had to say.
As you can see, I've got a lot of big changes going on around here. New job, new wardrobe, new body, a general new outlook on life.
So I'm thinking it may be time for a new blog design. I've loved my current blog design for the past year. I got it as a present to myself for my 25th birthday. I learned so many challenging and difficult lessons during my 25th year. I would definitely say it was the most difficult year of my life to date.
I'm looking forward to seeing what 26 has to bring. I feel like I'm getting better with age. Learning how to appreciate my friends, family and husband. Learning how to dress for my body, apply makeup and style my hair. (I'm serious...I've never been fashionable or trendy. I've made leaps and bounds in my personal style and appearance this year!) My faith has grown immensely during this past year. Most importantly, I'm learning to be comfortable in my own skin. I'm proud of the woman I'm becoming. I'm proud of my accomplishments. I'm even strangely proud of my failures because without them I wouldn't truly be able to appreciate my triumphs.
With all this personal transformation going on, I just feel like it's time for a blog design that accurately depicts the new me. The move away from a young twenty something struggling with her identity into a mid twenty something gaining confidence with every passing year.
So that's where you all come in. I need suggestions for great blog designers. I'm a complete believer of referral business and I will feel so much better about working with a designer if I know someone who has used her (or if that designer is one of my readers!) I don't have a ton of money, so please let me know if you are or know of an affordable blog designer that can help me create a blog design for this upcoming year.
Thanks again for all the support. :) :)
