New, and Hugely, Vastly, and Incomparably Improved

When we were little, my sister and I used to make birthday cards for our relatives. We took a sheet of white paper, folded it in half, and she would illustrate the front and the inside cover. Then, I would write the message on the inside, right-hand side of the card.

Even as a kid, my sister was an incredible artist. I, however, was not. To say drawing stick figures proved an insurmountable challenge for me was to put it mildly. Luckily, there are those out there with an artisitc eye and a talent for design to lend a hand to those of us for whom fingerpainting time in kindergarten led to years of intensive therapy.

Thank you, Lisanne, for designing my new blog! You did an amazing job.

And thank you, Shannon, for sending me her way.

I'm so excited to blog now, and I have a bunch of new posts already started, including my follow-ups to this one. My mom paid a surprise visit this past week, and work has been crazy, so that's the reason for my absence.

But I'm back, baby. And I think Interrupted Wanderlust is looking like it just came back from spending a week at a spa with Jude Law.

    Coincidentally, I did a kind of lame new banner myself yesterday. I don't know what I'm doing, so it's not as beauteous as yours!
