hi.

Are you ok? It's still me under here (Carter's running around here somewhere, too!). If clicking this page is part of your daily (or weekly) routine, I'm sorry to startle you!

It's going to take some getting used to for me, too. I had my sleeping baby photo up top for more than two years. Hold on.

Ok, now that life's feeling a little more predictable for all of us, I'll keep on with my explanation. I was so in love with that picture; for years it sent a squeeze of satisfaction around my heart every time I clicked over to my page. But lately, the squeeze stopped coming, and I get more of an annoying, 1985 vibe when I see the same old photo with the raggedy text sitting on it. The sleeping bumble picture was just starting to feel tired. (Pun totally intended.)

I stumbled across a new blog not too long ago, and at first sight I was hit with a killer urge to get this page looking as pretty as Bobbi's. Stalking in a little farther, I read that she designs blogs and felt like I'd hit the jackpot. If ever you venture beyond the mommy blog category, Today, I'm Bobbi is where you start!

I think it's turned out absolutely adorable. She was so fun, talented and hilarious to collaborate with. I'm not big on change, but I feel like I was really careful and soo ready for this one!

  1. I LOVE IT! I mean, I loved it before too, but now it looks so much more you (I have no idea how to explain this), The colors, the font...it's very elegant and I love it. I have to say though, I did/do absolutely love that picture you look of carter sleeping; it's so peaceful. But there is something about your new blog...I just love it.

    1. i think so too! i think before i was scared to make it look girlie because it's mostly about a baby boy. but then i just decided that it's about me, too, so it can be as girlie as i want. pink and blue is perfect for me and carter.

  13. i love the colors and the new look! if i could just suggest one thing, i'd love if you had an archive somewhere on your blog so readers, myself especially, could read some of your older posts :) i've been following you on youtube from some time and have just recently (a few months ago) started reading your blogs, would love to read your older posts too! :)

  14. Hi Meghann

    Good to see you back again. I love the new blog layout, especially since you can see your most recent post without having to scroll so far down the page. I still think that picture of Carter is beautiful though, and can see why you were loathe to part with it for so long!
    I still shy away from blogging as I feel it won't be worth reading. Your posts always seem so inspired...mine seem okay until I read them back and then realise they are dull!
    I think i'll stick to just reading instead!

    1. just because you think your posts are boring doesn't mean other people will think of them that way! i thought my most recent post (strategizing) was kind of a boring read, but i'm hoping it maybe helped or entertained some people. plus, you have to think of how much you'll love looking back and reading about your life years from now. i just clicked over to your blog and didn't see anything there, but i'm following it anyway! xox

    2. Thank you. I deleted it all because I felt embarrassed by it. I go on Maternity leave again at the end of April. Perhaps i'll think about starting it up again soon. I do keep a journal of my son at home, and on a forum, so I do have my thoughts logged. Just not in the way you would blog them if that makes sense. You do inspire me to try though!
