My Blog Got a Makeover!

Hey greenies, I've got some exciting news...my blog got a makeover! A big thanks to Whit of Heart & Arrow Designs for giving my blog a much needed update.  I feel as thought it more appropriately matches the way I envision it to be and the message/expereince I want to get across to my readers.



It's hard to believe that I've had this blog for almost 4 years now, and after all that time, I was starting to  a little bored with the old look, as you can see below. It was a standard Blogger set up, colors, and background, which was as my blog describes: green. But I was ready for something a little different.


That's when I contacted Whit, sent her my mix of ideas, Pinterest pins, and random thoughts, and the result is the blog you are looking at...and I'm pretty much in love with it.

Now if you're anything like me, you like routines and "sameness," I'm with you.  It's always hard for me when fellow bloggers change up their blog or they way it's designed because I'm used to the old look.  But I think you'll find my blog looks brighter, more organized, and much is much easier to navigate than it was before.

So if you're a fellow blogger looking for an update to your blog, I can't recommend Whitney's Blog Design services more.

I look forward to hearing what you think about the new design. Feel free to browse around and see how it all looks.  And I'll be back soon (Come on end of the school year!) with a new post.

  2. I think the new layout is great! Your menu options on the right side of the page are very unique. Nice job - not an easy change to make. Good for you:) One of the most important things is how quickly the pages load - and I think it is moving even faster than before! Your content is awesome Ashley - I came across one of your articles last week and have spent quite a bit of time reading about several of your topics. I'm nearly at the half way point of my first pregnancy and have been really encouraged by what you have shared about hypnobirthing - to the point of registering for a course for my husband Frank and I this summer. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to find someone who shares so openly about their experiences. The detail and research that goes into your product recommendations is wonderful also. Best, Kimberly

  3. Hey Ashley! I haven't visited in quite some time (it's my first year teaching and all that :) ), but I noticed this post in my blogroll and just had to come by and say how much I love it. The color is fantastic and I believe, suits you so much better! (It's unfortunate you disabled right click - although I understand why you did - I wanted to visit Whitney's site while remaining on yours. I made it work though - I clicked on the link, went to her site, copy and pasted the URL in another tab and then clicked the back arrow on my current tab to get back to your blog :)

  5. Love your new blog look! And I love your blog. I've just become vegan (for the second time after not doing it very healthily the first time round). I'm also pregnant with our second so your vegan pregnancy section is particularly helpful; thanks! X

  6. Hi, big fan here! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for green mosquito repellants? I'm having a really hard time finding a natural product that works! Thanks for all your other helpful advice too!

    1. Hi Lindsey, my favorite mosquito repellant is doTERRA's blend called: "TerraShield" I have it in a spray bottle with some distilled water and I spray it before we go outside...I think I need to do a video about that! Thanks for the question. ( :
