So what do you think? Do you like the new blog design?

I was just tired of pink. And I wanted something simpler to navigate. So my wonderful assistant Holly and I have been going back and forth on a new design for a while now, and she uploaded it last night.

I’ve been playing around with some things all day, and trying to streamline more, but at least it’s readable now!

There are still a few kinks we’ll work out over the next few weeks, but I’m happy. I think it feels more like me!

(Incidentally, here’s another post where I talk about new things: Turning Junk Into Something Beautiful.)

I’m gearing up for Easter weekend and I’m so excited. I love Easter. Just the hope and the wonderful music and the PEACE. And Lent is over! He is risen indeed.

What do you do to celebrate Easter? Let me know in the comments. I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Easter chocolate, because it seems like the chocolate hunts take away from the main message. But I do love chocolate eggs.

I’ll have my Good Friday column up tomorrow, but then I likely won’t talk to you again until after Easter. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
