Welcome to the new site!

Good Monday morning, friends! I’d love for y’all to click on over to my blog so you can see the new rebrand and site design.

This fun project has been in the works for about 9 months or so and I’m really pleased with the results.

About a year ago, I started thinking that I wanted to move away from Blue-Eyed Bride. We’ve been married for almost 7 years and the name just didn’t really make sense anymore. And the simplest, most obvious choice for a new name was my name. Go figure!



My dear friend Whitney English recommended Katelyn Brooke Designs to me, and between Kate and Whitney, they came up with a new design that looks exactly like what I wanted. I wanted it to feel like you were stepping into my front door to come over for coffee.

You can subscribe to the new blog in the sidebar and my old URL will automatically redirect to the new site.

I’m excited about a new look and a more focused direction. Blogging has evolved so much over the years and through that time I’ve found my voice and lost it and found it and lost it. I’m hopeful with such a beautiful new site and more focused categories, I can hone in on my voice again.

So explore! See what’s new around here and feel free to follow me on social media, where I’m most likely to update consistently.

Meanwhile, I’ve got lots of fun things to catch up on and an ever-expanding baby bump, so I have lots of updates in the works.

Thank you for reading along and for hanging in there with me!
