Why I Love My Header (And You Should, Too!)

If you dropped by the blog this week you might have noticed a few changes that have taken place. I addressed the first change in my blog post yesterday and that was adding a picture of me.  A picture where I feel beautiful. Then I added a bigger about me section in the side bar. But one of the biggest changes was implementing my new header design. I totally love it before I start writing about how it came about I want to remind you of what it looked like before the change.

I created  it myself by using a picture from my daughter’s quince anos. (15-year-old Birthday Party). Although I liked it I had a review done on the blog and most people thought that this blog was a wedding site.  Although I am the mom of three beautiful girls I am not ready to start planning weddings yet. So I decided to get a more professional header. I decided to ask the fabulous Sarah from Dirty Fish Designs to see if she was available to design a header for me.

As you may remember Sarah also designed my new blog buttons so I knew she was the person I wanted to design the header. When designing the header it was almost like Sarah read my mind. I basically just said ” I like the colors that you did the buttons in. Not really sure what I want just something new. ” Even though I was really vague with Sarah, she totally knocked this one out of the ballpark. She sent me the design and I was like I am so in love with this. Can  you believe that out of something so vague came this new header?


So tell me what do you think of the new design?
