New Blog Design

I am very excited to be revealing my new blog design by the amazing Paige @ Paige by designTHANK YOU, PAIGE! 

I'd also like to thank my dear sister, Allison @ Whatever the Circumstances who told me about Paige, and gifted me the free blog design that she won: LOVE YOU, SIS. 

If I'm being honest, I was really nervous about having my blog redesigned. I knew that I wanted my blog to have a certain feel, and that I wanted it to visually say "this is a book blog." However, I am not artistically inclined at all, and had no idea what that would mean practically. I also worked for several years in the marketing department at a museum that had a very specific brand, and am quite familiar with the fact that it is difficult to articulate verbally what you want someone to create for you visually. It can be a frustrating and time consuming process when their vision is not your own. 

Thankfully, Paige got what I was looking for right away, and she turned it into a design that was even BETTER than anything I could have imagined. You're AMAZING, Paige!

Please bear with us over the next day or so as we make a few last updates to my new 'look.'


  1. Lauren, I love this. I really do. It looked great on my phone when I glanced quickly but it looks even better on the computer screen. I'm so thrilled for you and how awesome of your sister! What a great gal. :)

  2. Me too, L! I really like the blues and greens used as accent colors! First Jen and now you, everyone is getting a new look! I want one now!:)

  3. I just LOVE the blog design, Lauren! I often worry if my design is book-ish enough too and I think yours is just perfect! :) CONGRATS!<3

  4. Lauren, thank you so much for this post - it's very very sweet of you to do and I appreciate it! This was such a fun project to work on!
