welcome to the new peace ♥ lauren!
i've been working on this blog design for a little while now,
and i just adore it. it's tre "lauren". i hope you like it too!

the new look is a tribute to my new mindset, my mindset about blogging. 
i don't know about you guys, but sometimes i feel like blogging is eating up my social skills. {you don't feel that way? oh... well go ahead and skip to the ending then!} i'll post and then i'll read other lady's posts and it will be a completely enjoyable, yet one-sided interaction. and that just stinketh in my mind.
also, travis misses me when i blog.
poor guy can't get enough of me!

my thoughts on this are very unorganized... if i sound like a rambling lunatic please, don't mind me.
i guess my point is that i need to remember the reason i started this blog in the first place-- for me. for my family and i to read through these posts one day and remember the quirky, amazing, wackadoodle times we've had together. remember the love we've shared. i blog to document the little moments & keep them alive forever.
gosh. blogging is a good idea, huh?
i am so grateful for the blog community & my sweet followers, you make this even more fun. ya'll are freaking power ranger! bloggers seriously make the online world a nicer place to be.

mush peace & love
lauren

oh. my. goodness! this new layout is ADORABLE. such a perfect shade of purple...

I started a blog because it was the cool thing to do? since then I realized I'm REALLY bad at consistently updating. I'm trying to get back into though

I am in absolute love with this new layout dude! I started blogging for the entertainment of other people but I realized I need to blog for ME like I used to. to remember the fun random things :)

i love blogging. it's given me an opportunity to catalog all the amazing things going on in my life so that I don't miss them and a time to sit down and do that everyday. I definitely get overwhelmed sometimes, but the community of bloggers is huge too- so awesome.

hooray! the design looks great.

a few months ago i had some creepy stuff going down on my blog and decided to delete the old one. i imported most of my posts (just the ones i really cared about) and started fresh. it was really nice.

I Love the new look! soooo cute! and I love this post, I started blogging pretty much the same reasons! to look back and keep little moments fresh! I Love it! Plus, it's just a way to show people that have to miss you *because unfortunately I have a lot.. what your up to! and oh of course for other people who don't know you to get to know you! Blogging is the beeeeeeest
