i've felt the need for a change on my blog for a while now.
it wasn't that i disliked my old blog layout, but i started to realize it didn't
seem to match the direction i was going in nor who i was anymore.
my blog has become a lot more than it used to be and i was ready
to change it up. i'm not much of a "floral" gal anymore and i was ready
for something a bit more mature. with all of the changes in my life these days,
i wanted this creative outlet of mine to represent how far i've come and 
*hopefully* where i'll go.

kaelah has been one of my favorite bloggers for about a year now.
i admire her for so many reasons but the primary being that
she is just who she is and she's never apologized for that.
she carries herself with grace, poise, and rocks her style the way it is.
i knew there was no other person for the job and i knew
she would design something for me that felt me.
working with her was amazing and at times i felt like the worst
client in the world (not really knowing what i wanted and changing
up the colors and design completely from the original plan) but
once we got it figured out, she ran with it and captured my vision perfectly.
i love that it feels so me and i'm so excited with how it turned out.

What a beautiful new layout, Maggie! I think it fits you perfectly. :) I always like freshening up my blog design so it feels like new and matches more who I am.
