You like my new look??'re probably noticing things look a little different around here, right? 

Well, it's no lie to say I've been MIA for awhile.  Posting when I can....promising to comment on your blogs when I can.  I've tried...really, I have.

Somewhere I simply lost my passion for writing. 

It's not that I don't have a lack of subject matter.  Oh no, quite the opposite.  You know my kids and Tim are always good for a funny story or two.

It's just that I wasn't enjoying it as much as I used to.  It was time for me to step away and focus on taking better care of myself.

Now that the little twins are in kindergarten a few hours a day, I've been spending that time working out. 

Jillian Michaels and I....we're total BFF's now.  She kicks my ass on a daily basis and I love it.  Oh and Shaun T's been helping me get some hard-core abs and getting my disco groove on.

But there was part of me that missed blogging....and writing, in general.  I just needed something to light a fire under my ass....something that would get me excited about it again.

A new blog design...that was it!!  It was exactly what I needed to get my mojo back!

I had the pleasure again of working with Laura at Likely Lola Design!  You may recall she's the graphic designer who did my wonderful blog makeover last year!

Laura is super talented and has awesome ideas when it comes to blog design.  She's also eager to please and wants her customers to be happy with the final results.   I showed her several blogs featuring either fonts or designs I admired and she was able to come up with the perfect look for me!

Please check out some of her work by visiting Likely Lola.  You can also like her on Facebook (Likely Lola Design) and follow her on Twitter. Registered & Protected

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
