a new look!

It’s been in the making a long time, this new look. At least, I’ve been toying with the idea in my head for awhile. This weekend I finally got down to business and here it is! A new Dear Friend header, just in time for spring. I designed it myself and I can’t even believe I did it. Me? A graphic designer? Maybe in my next life.

I hope you like it!

And today, I’ll be over at The Neesby Lookbook for her World’s Biggest Girl Party. I’m excited to meet some new blogging friends, and hopefully find some kindred spirits along the way.

Everybody loves a party, right?

This is the picture that I sent over with my sentences, so be sure to look for me and check it all out at:

The Party of Parties


I usually think Monday is the WORST, but today I’ll make an exception.
