How's This Looking?

Re: Blog Template

I'm not done yet! But please feel free to comment.

Re: Yesterday

Today was much better, largely because of my attitude (lowering expectations is the way to go, baby). And Ellie would like me to clarify that yesterday's 4 accidents were really much more like 2 "accidents." It's all a matter of perspective.

Re: Marriage

I think it's important for me to be honest about the difficulties of making a marriage work. I don't think it serves anyone to pretend that all is happiness and light when it isn't. But because there's so much to say, and I only post about 5 times a week, I find that I'm often posting about my marriage when it seems pressing - when we're having a rough patch.

Most of the time, it's not like that. Most of the time, it's a lot better than that. So I'll move those as-yet-unwritten posts up the queue and share some of the sunshine and light, too, instead of letting them get bumped by cute kid pics or political rants. Yes, we're working hard. But we're also having fun. Most of the time.

Re: Template - I like the tweaks you've put on it. I would like to be mentioned in your cast of characters, though. :o)

(kidding, you know that, right?)

Oh yeah - check out Abby's site to see the new header.

I did that while Anny was scrapbooking last week. Got her approval last night and uploaded this morning.

The template's bright and clear! Did you have that whole mission statement beneath the blog title with the old template?

Sarahlynn said...

Orange, yep. I just updated it slightly to reflect the existence of my second child (15 months late). I don't love the way it looks yet, but with a few tweaks, I bet it will feel like home in no time at all. Thanks!

: )
I LOVE Abby's new header!

Saralynn, I like this format so much better! Before I had to strain to read, now it's much better. Even if it doesn't stay this way, I like the white background!

Now, as to that photo of you...THAT needs improvement because you can't enlarge it! :)

Sarahlynn said...

Thanks, Tracey! The profile photo seems to be an uneditable part of the blogger template, but I'll see what I can do . . .
