My new name is...

This Yellow House

After giving it much thought like I mentioned here in my last post, I am changing my name.  I really feel like my new blog name "fits" me better, ya know? I know I'm going to be making lots and lots of tweaks to my blog over time but this is kind of a really big one. 

Why you ask? Well, for one thing my entire URL address will be changing. So if you have saved, please change it to on your bookmarks. I would really really appreciate that! If you are following me via Google Friend Connect (GFC) then everything should be ok. I am hoping that I did this in a way to keep all my followers. If you would like to make sure you are still following me I would really appreciate that!

Another big part of it is changing my banner, button and all those things that have my blog name on them. Which I will admit was a lot of fun! I know I'm not the best at making headers and all that but it really is fun learning new things. I was happy with the end result of my logo and the little house on it. And my husband said he was impressed so um yeah, that kinda just made my day. 

Ok so let me tell you why I went with THIS YELLOW HOUSE. We live in a little yellow house that I pretty much love. You may have remembered me talking about how much I love our house in the very first blog post I wrote here. It is so full of memories and sentimental things. We are really excited to be fixing it up and making it beautiful. I really do love our house and the people in it. I had my husband help me with the tagline for my blog and together we came up with:

"Little House, BIG Dreams, One Happy Family"

So those are my big changes around here. I am so glad I went ahead and did this. Thank you to ya'll who encouraged me to make the change. I really love my new name. If my site goes down temporarily, I apologize. I'm still learning how to do all of this but hopefully things will be up and running smooth soon!
