New Look

I'm toying a bit with my blog layout, and would love any feedback you'd like to offer.  I've been wanting to overhaul the site for awhile, and this is just the first step in a summer makeover.  The photo in the new header is from the beach where my parents live in Maine (although they've just about moved from the house at the beach into a fabulous place in town, that will always be "our beach").  When one of her daughters is going through something difficult or some kind of life transition, my mom often takes a walk to this beach and "puts her hands out to the universe" to ask for the right outcome.  I've stood at the edge of that water with her many times asking for something, and more often than not, things turn out the way they should.  I've felt a bit adrift lately, so I thought that putting that image at the top of the page would be a good reminder to keep asking for what is possible and expecting a positive outcome.  Also, for me, this blog is something akin to that spot on the beach... a tiny corner personal to me, yet frequented by many, where I can put out my wishes, my hopes, my self and feel at home. 

And the new font is called "Philosopher" :).
More to come...


  1. Thank you for sharing your beach with us. I put my hands out to it now and ask for a positive outcome as I face a big transition in my life...

  2. I love the new pick & the "Philosopher SMJ" font! :-) I was wondering to myself yesterday when I hopped over to your site, if that picture was in Maine. Thank you for's beautiful.
