Here It Is.

So this is where, if you're reading this in your email or in your blog reader, it's time to click on over and see my new blog design.

I've been wanting a new look for some time and finally hired Made by Guerrilla to do it.

It was no easy feat and quite the labor of love for me. {Last count we exchanged just shy of 90 emails. I think he cringes when he sees my name in his inbox.}

But it's here and it's live and I'm happy. {And Mike is really great at working with crazy, over ambitious, women who send 14 emails in an hour!}

Some minor tweaking and changes will still be taking place the next few days {including a matching look on my giveaway page! and a mobile friendly plugin for those of you who like to visit while on the go!}

If you haven't liked my page on Facebook be sure and do that and also if it's easier for you to receive updates via email you can subscribe right there. {You can also now like individual posts as well!}

In the meantime, take a look around and let me know what you think. Please!


In other news this week, I wrote a story about a local man involved with the movie Courageous. The movie opens tonight and has already reached over $2 million in pre-sales. Go see it!

Also, Time Magazine's cover story this week was "Why Mom Liked You Best." and is all about the infamous favorite child. I wrote my take on it this week over here. And last night I remembered I wrote a little bit about favorites and fairness awhile back and specifically remembered a quote we have taped in our cupboard.

We won’t treat you identically, but we’ll treat you equally. It will be the same, only different, because you are different and we will adjust to your individual, specific, genetic, cultural, idiosyncratic specialness. You will be our favorite you, and, you over there, you’ll be our favorite you. -Michael @FiveMinutesforParenting {link to this and backstory available here}

I still firmly believe it.

I'll be posting sometime this weekend. Two new ads will begin and October has a couple really good giveaways!

Happy Friday!

Samara, it looks really great! You should be proud.

And you and your husband look so darn happy in the below photo, it just makes me smile!

I like the new look!

Your quote about fairness and sameness is something I have to share with my students and their parents every year when we talk about differentiation in the classroom. It's never an easy thing for people to understand, but it's definitely necessary!

Sorry about the deleted comment - I have two Gmail accounts and sometimes I forget and log in with the wrong one!

Anyway, I really like the new look! It fits your theme really well!!
