New Blog Design and a Giveaway.

This is my blog-aversary month and I have some big treats

in store for you during March.

The friendship giveaway starts today!

But before I talk about the giveaway…

Did you notice????

I have had a blog make over!!!!!!!!

I send BiG warm fuzzies to Michelle!!!


Oh my word this woman is a genius!


This was an incredible process.

Michelle was able to take my pictures, likes, and color preferences

and dream up the glorious-ness you see!

She had to scrap my old code and write new code

so I could respond to comments.

She worked endlessly, joyfully, and with attention to detail.

She even created a pink and black 3am logo for the bottom of my

blog, so that her red and yellow one would not clash with my blog.


Thank you, my dear friend, from the bottom of my heart!

You are in my heart…

Speaking of in my heart,

Michelle, Greg, and Lisa will be there forever!


Lemme tell you, they are cheerleaders, counselors, and inspirations.

As with the best collaborative relationships,

we all created something great for March.

Each perfectly compliments the others.

We are combining them in a giveaway.

You can enter on all 4 of our blogs.

This giveaway is called …Life is Better with Friends.

Way better with friends

Winners will be chosen Friday March 1st.


  1. I love and follow you and the other friends you listed! My BFF is the BEST! We have so much in common. She is a teacher and so is her hubby, just like me. Our kids are besties too. Every time we are all together we just LAUGH...that is the best part! We had one falling out and it lasted 2 years! I was so sad the whole time. One day we just started talking again...we refer to it as "our break". We can totally joke about it now! I love that we can talk about anything! I love that our families care about each other! She is the best!

  13. LOVE the new blog layout - so much pink! Just gorgeous.

    My best friend is also a teacher, and up until a few weeks ago we taught together at my school. My beautiful friend is a few weeks away from having her first baby and I'm SO excited for her. I met her when I first started teaching 3 years ago and she's kept me sane, grounded and encouraged me to do all the things that I've dreamed about doing as a teacher. She's Canadian (I'm Aussie) and I know that no matter where we are in the world I can call her up and chat and know that she won't judge me or put me down. I miss seeing her every day at work, but she's about to start the next, super-special stage of her life and I look forward to being a small part of it.

  16. Your new design is SO cute! Michelle did a fabulous job. I may have to keep her in mind if/when I want to re-do my page.

    My best friend from college is Jessica from Joy in the Journey

    We survived practicums, crazy curriculum-writing, personal ups and downs, and so much more. After college, she convinced me to apply for a job near her in NJ and it was the best recommendation ever. I got a job in a great school and now live only 15 minutes from my best bud! We've had such an adventure going through our first two years of teaching together.

    Thanks for hosting this sweet giveaway! Friends are such a blessing!
