During my May coaching session with Katelyn James, she and I picked apart my blog and website design. It’s hard when you see something every day to look at it from an outsider’s perspective so it was great to hear her thoughts and advice. After the session I quickly “freshened” my website but I spent more time hunting for the right style for my blog design. I wanted something professional and boutique looking for my brand yet fun and fresh; and of course, something that looked cohesive with my portfolio site. When Tonic Site Shop released their new collection of blog designs this summer… I knew I found the one! It’s not quite custom but certainly a professionally designed boutique looking design that I easily personalized for my brand using ProPhoto. I love the new look!
If you’re wondering what on earth these photos have to do with my new blog design, they don’t! Today marks four years since Dave and I got engaged on Napeague Beach in between Amagansett and Montauk in the Hamptons. These are a few of my favorite photographs from our engagement weekend! We spent another long weekend out there again this weekend relaxing with friends and family. It’s a little slice of heaven on the east end of Long Island with the most amazing corn on the cob and fresh lobster rolls on the beach. I’m always surprised how beautiful it is when you leave the hustle and bustle of New York City. Can’t believe that was four years ago… my how time flies!!
I know my blog has been on a little bit of a hiatus as I’ve been redesigning everything over the past month but summer is winding down and I’ll be picking up where I left off… let me know what you think of my new look!
