Time for Blog Adjustments

In short:  same blog, different look.  I spent way too much time yesterday pretending that I understand html code.  (I don't.) 

I still need to label many of the older posts, so they will show up under the tabs.  The blog hops page needs work, but it's going to take me a while year to figure out how to line the buttons up nicely.  I want to resize my "Thankful thought" and signature line.  I'd like to redesign my blog button and favicon.  I want to update my profile.  I might even change some of the days that I post, or not follow as strict of a schedule as I have for the past year.  We'll see.  I'll let you know as soon as I decide. 

In the meantime, take a look around.  What do you think?  If you find any broken links or things that otherwise don't work, please let me know.  (And if you know how to fix the problem, all the better.)


Thanks for google search, and bloggers who have written tutorials about blogging.

  1. I already like it better. It loads a lot faster than the previous one. I'm glad you kept the family photo. I've always liked it. I'm off to look around...

  2. Wow! Very nice look. I know it took a ton of work and frustration but perseverance always pays off and this time it did for sure. Nice job. I like your button, that's on my list of things to do.

  3. I think it is looking great. It seemed to struggle loading and sizing the family photo in the sidebar when I change pages but it does size and I don't know what is causing the issue...

    1. Hmm, I see what you mean about the sizing issue, but I don't know what is causing the problem, either. I'll have to puzzle on that a bit. I didn't actually change anything about the photo from the old blog design to the new, so I'm not sure how to make it better. I might not get it fixed soon, but I'll try to figure it out. Thanks for the feedback.

  4. An ambitious project for sure! I wouldn't even know where to begin a remodel of my blog.

    I like the tabs at the top.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Ten Things of Thankful: It's Only January, but I'm Taking a Break

A new year often brings re-commitment, re-direction, and renewal of enthusiasm. A blank calendar shows possibilities: routines to be developed, and breaks to schedule in. While I know it's only January--the traditional "routines to be developed" phase--I'm shaking things up and starting with a break. I will be away from my blog and generally off-line for the next few weeks, but never fear, the Ten Things of Thankful link-up will go on. I will respond to comments and read linked posts when I return from my break. 

This week, I'm thankful for:

1. Book club. When I was a child, I had no problem at all living with my nose constantly stuck in a book. As an adult, I am trying to remember that it is OK to spend hours reading. Book club is a step in the right direction. I "have to" read, but I'm having fun, and have given myself permission to read other books, too. 

2. Thrift stores. I wanted an actual, physical copy of The Help (the book club selection for Fe…
