Somebody Got A Makeover

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

Mere months after my last blog design (May 2012) I started craving something different.  I'm not sure if it was the move to Norway and being surrounded by Scandinavian design but I wanted something simpler in colour and feel.  I held out as long as I could before I asked Ana from BlogMilkShop to whip up this custom new look for me and I must say, I'm feeling at home in my new abode.

Take a look around and make yourself at home.  If your reading this post via email or reader, click on over.  There are some updated & new pages added which you can find in the sidebar under my photo.  (I'll be working on the Voyages page in the weeks to come making it easier to navigate our travel posts.)  With the new design, there may be a couple of quirks particularly while we try out different elements on different browsers.  We'll be trying to get everything working seamlessly but if you happen to notice something not quite right, please let me know!

And finally,

Thank you for your continued support.  I'm honoured that you keep coming back, commenting and following along as Joe and I navigate life abroad.



{I feel like this is probably a good time to tell you, in case you didn't already know, I'm on bloglovin so with the imminent disappearance of Google Reader, you can follow me here.}

    1. Thank you!

      She has some great pre-made designs in her shop that you can customize a little which I think is cool too!

  6. I'm loving the new design and as I just found out that I'll be moving to Norway in August, I'm sure I'll spend a lot of time on your Norway section over the next months.One thing, though: I find the font a bit hard to read, just because it's so small.

    It might be my laptop or my eyes and is not really a concern for me as I often read your blog over the bloglovin app on my phone, but I just wanted to let you know. :)

    1. First of all - congratulations on your move to Norway! Let me know if you have any questions :)

      I also think the font is a little small - I wrote Ana last night to see if she could make it a touch bigger!
