A Bloggy Makeover!

Okay, so I know I've only had my blog for a few weeks, but right from the start, it didn't look the way I envisioned it in my mind. I couldn't get the effect I wanted and it didn't look professional. What to do... what to do?
Enter the amazing Megan from A Bird in Hand Blog Design. She came to my rescue with the most fantabulous blog design ever! Don't you love it?
I grew up on the Downeast coast of Maine, and in my tiny town, wild blueberries were, and still are, a major industry. (Did you know that 90% of the nation's wild blueberries come from Maine?) Anyway, I wanted to keep my little blueberry girl, but change everything else. Megan was super easy to work with and she made the process of choosing what I wanted soooo easy! (Well, actually, the hardest part for me was choosing which header I wanted from the 3 adorable options she came up with.
Seriously, if you are looking to start a blog, or update the look of your blog, I can't recommend Megan highly enough. You won't be sorry, and you will have a blog that you are proud to show off!
Megan also is the author of I Teach, What's Your Super Power?, and Blog, Baby, Blog, both awesome sources of information and inspiration. Be sure to check her out!


  1. Your blog looks great! I definitely get the feel of blueberries from your blog :-)



  2. Cathy,
    I LOVE your blog design! Megan designed mine, too, and she is A-Mazing! I love how you incorporated the blueberries as Maine has THE best blueberries! My husbands family has a beach house in Wells, so I've spent many summers down east! The Maine coast is truly a hidden gem in this country. I love forward to visiting you blog again!

  3. Thanks, Diane! I love how it turned out and Megan was awesome to work with. I live about 40 minutes north of Wells, in South Portland, but my older daughter actually now lives in Wells. Her husband is from there and they bought the house he grew up in. Small world, isn't it?


  4. Love the new design! I have never been to Maine, but I imagine it is beautiful!
