Don't get me wrong, Blogger served me well for over 2 years, but it was really time to bite the bullet and grow up! The process was not as difficult as I thought it would be, but really most of the thanks goes to my Super-Star Husband (seriously, this guy ROCKS!) And now I'm finally the owner of my own stuff! Whoohoo!   So right off the bat you'll notice that I have a super easy to use "search" box right at the top right of my blog. You can put anything you like in here and hopefully, if all went well, it'll find it for you! How nice right? Just trying to make it easier for you all to find things that tend to get lost in "blog abyss". I also installed a nifty new slideshow for my most recent and featured posts!
