Check out my new digs!!!

Yes, you see a new blog! Can you believe how beautiful this is??? I seriously let out a squeal right in my little home office when Jo-Lynne sent me an example of this header. I was just so excited that I would finally be a real blog!

I want to tell you my story about my bloggy friend Jo-Lynne. Early last summer, I sent an email out to my friends here in NC. I asked if any of them had any experience with blogs or knew anyone that did. A girl from my MOPS group introduced me to her friend's blog, Musings of a Housewife. I talk about that blog a lot. I love her blog!

I emailed Jo-Lynne at Musings and had a MILLION questions for her, all of which she graciously and excitedly answered. We had a wonderful email conversation about our mutual friend in NC and blogging. I instantly liked her and felt so honored that someone who did not even know me would take the time to help me get started with this whole blogging thing. She still continues to help me out when I need her and support me in this bloggy blog world.

Fast forward to 2 days ago. She is expanding her blogging to also design blogs! She emailed me to see if I would be interested in being her first customer!

Now, I have been on a wait list for some time with another very popular blog designer. I LOVE her work and think she is just an amazing person. I decided I was willing to wait to have her design my blog.

But when the opportunity arose for me to help Jo-Lynne out after all she has done for me, it really seemed like a no brainer. So, she did this!!!!!

I wanted something simple and fresh, just in time for Spring. She was fast and easy to work with. I had this in less than 2 days!!!! AND it was affordable! Where else can you get that? Timely work that is affordable.

If you do not have a blog design or are in need of a change,
please contact Jo-Lynne.

If you are not in need of a new design be sure to check out her blogs.
Musings of a Housewife - her main blog
Chic Critique - Reviews of beauty products.
American Idolist - she loves her some American Idol. If you are a fan, you will enjoy these discussions.
And here reviewing all kinds of products and books.

Her husband also has a podcast called The Handyguys Podcast.

Yes, she is a busy one! (also has 3 kids) Anyway, you will not be disappointed. I consider her a friend and I love to spread the love about my friends.

Thanks Jo-Lynne from the bottom of my bloggy heart!
