so about the new look...

You may or may not have noticed the fresh look around here. (If not, blame google reader. If so, thanks everyone for saying such nice things!) As much as I wish I could wave a magic wand and create a completely custom look, a few simple touch-ups are sufficient for now. It feels kind of like cutting bangs. A small, quick thing that makes a big statement. I'm especially jazzed about my new banner! The lovely Cathie Hong from Ampersandity custom-created it for this blog. How neat is that!? You can find more of her beautiful work on etsy. Want to know what else I'm jazzed about? Two new episodes of Glee in one week--seriously, fellow gleeks, how spoiled are we!? Just finished watching the Valentine's Day episode tonight and I realized that I hadn't shared a Tumblr Tuesday post yet! So here it is, a few photos from around the web that are making my week a little brighter and totally getting me in the mood for Love day...Just 6 days away!

Thanks for the heads up. I definitely blame Google Reader for hiding your great redesign from me. I really like the new font in the header. Also, thanks for alerting me to the new Glee episode. I can't believe I missed it. :-)
