The earth beneath my feet

Lately I've been feeling oh-so tired and uninspired. I have a lot to say, but no energy to put it into words. I needed something to lift my spirits and give me that rush I used to get every fall when starting a new school year.

So I gave the keys to my blog to my good friend Motherbumper, and had her go in and rearrange the furniture. She put up a swanky new header, and tweaked other areas, and the result is simply stunning. It brightens my day just looking at it. (In fact, if you look at my Sitemeter stats, it will probably show that I am my biggest fan.)

I feel like I have a second wind, and I have my ridiculously talented friend to thank for it. Please give her props in the comments for doing such a great job.

Motherbumper, you are my gravity.

The new look is totally clever and totally you. Love it! And a heartfelt kudo from a fellow photo retoucher (Photoshoper, if I used that software) to Andrea for the really clean job of retouching the Caution sign. Undershading left intact. Not damn easy!

I'm glad you love it (and thanks Mary G - I take pride in my photoshop work, thank you for the recognition).

Oooh nice. And I love the Lionel Richie reference on the sidebar. (Is that new? I just noticed it.)

I wanted to mention how much I like the new look when I came by yesterday, but then I feared that maybe you changed it months ago and I was too zoned out to notice. I'm glad it's new. Looks great!
