New site design: Please bear with me while I work out the kinks!

Hey guys! I am so excited to have FINALLY finished coding our new site design! Many of you know that I’ve been a website designer for many many years (though I’m basically retired) I still enjoy designing WordPress templates from time to time and, goodness knows, being able to code has given me a jump here in blog land. But it also handicaps me in a way as well because, you see, I’ve been working on this new site design for over six months! When you’re able to code and truly start from scratch it is very easy to get kinda paralyzed and after working myself down to two complete designs I needed a good month to step away and not look at them anymore.

UPDATE: December 15th, 2017. Joe and I are now divorced. I will not be deleting blog posts like this one as it is still a diary to some extent of my past and that still matters to me. I wish I had been more honest about how things were going to you guys here on the blog… I thought things would get better. There was always something: once this happens then he won’t be so angry… But, eventually, he ran out of excuses and I had to face my reality that I was wrong about Joe in every way possible. Grandma’s house is completely mine so now it can actually become what I dreamed it would be on all those late nights alone when I was renovating it. Happiness does not always come the way we expect it to, sometimes it even takes a broken heart to get us there, and I still believe in happy endings!

Fortunately I’ve got some great ladies on my side! Kate and Stephanie (my co-hosts at the Wednesday To Grandma’s house we go DIY link party) had a look at the two designs I had been staring at for so long and they both voted for one of them. (I was so relieved that their vote didn’t end up split between the two lol I don’t know what I would have done if that had happened!) But, no, they both picked this design that you’re looking at right now and it was really the final push I needed. So I got it up over on my testing site and tinkered with it for a few days but there really is only so much I can do before I have to go live with it here and work out the kinks as we go.

SO, please forgive any problems the site might have the next couple of days! I promise it will get worked out and fixed by Monday! Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding of this little one-woman team 🙂
