gunlock lake + blog makeover

I love when the blog world collides with the real world! I met Gentri when we both lived up north, and then we both moved south within days of each other. A couple weeks ago (when I was babysitting 5 boys) all the kids were at school except for one, so I met up with Gentri and we went to my favorite place! I have the best memories of ditching school (sorry mom and dad) and hanging out at Gunlock Lake! It was a gorgeous day, with an amazing friend, and a darling 4yr old!


P.S. Notice anything new about the blog??  :) Connie B gave my blog a makeover and I am in love! When I saw that she did some work for my sister in law's blog I knew I had to contact her! Call me a copycat.. but Connie's blog is one of the first blogs I ever started following and I adore her taste! One day I'm going to meet up with her so that she can take pictures of me and Eric! And I think she's gorgeous and has the cutest family... basically I want to be her best friend! Now you can call me a creeper, haha!
Anyway.... thoughts on the new look? Heaven knows I love me some feedback!! :)

Breathtaking photos! That's awesome that you can meet up with fellow blog members. I don't know any other bloggers who live near me!

And yes, those shoes are quite ridiculous! I like to balance on the heels of my feet when my shoes are hurting me, so I could never buy no-heel shoes! I doubt I'd even be able to stand in them! lol
