This is going to be a gradual change done in stages.
First, the name has changed.
Next will be the look. The current header is only temporary until (hopefully) my coworker can whip me up a really cool one. This will be at least another few weeks, however, because he just left on a two-week honeymoon.
And after that - the URL, which is the most out-of-date thing about this blog. It is no longer my Colorado Countdown and hasn't been for quite some time. I just couldn't hit on a new blog identity - until recently.
I didn't want my new blog to have the same theme as the last one - "big city girl" returns to the West. I wanted it to incorporate Todd more and it to be about our comfortable, happy little life.
Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. I love how old fashioned and homey they are. Jeff M. will probably never read my blog (not that he does now) because of the peony reference. I had a large peony in our garden in D.C., and he wasn't a big fan (I think secretly he loves it though...) Peonies are also the feminine and pistols is obviously more masculine, representing Todd.
Eventually, I am going to move the blog to Wordpress and find a place to host it. Blogger is making me crazy and it's time to move on. I want greater capabilities and pages and my own URL without "blogspot" in it.
So, the change has begun.
Please be patient as I make all these new moves. It's going to take some time to get it how I want it, but I think it will definitely be worth it!
