it's not broken, just different.......

It's 2008 and even though I started the new year still posting on my old blog, I kept feeling like I needed a change. Let's just blame it on the cold and snowy white winter. While white is a beautiful color, the more I hated it, the more I loved it. {like that makes any sense}

There's a simplicity to white....and a calmness {unless it's snow and you have to drive in it} and the more I kept seeing it ouside my window, the more I wanted it. Try to keep up here....not more snow......just something white, simple and calm.

So I thought I'd go back to a white background on my old blog, but it didn't really do anything for me.

And the more I played around and the more I thought about "seaside dreamer" the more nauseous I became. {maybe similar to how you're feeling trying to understand all of this} When I first started blogging, I thought it was a great name. We love to vacation in Seaside, Florida and I love the sea, sand and sun....but enough is enough. Don't get me wrong....I still want to live by the water someday, but for now I'm not.

Instead I live by barns.

So this will be my new home for awhile. Some place that feels more simple, more calm and more me....at least for the moment.

You probably won't see anything really different about this blog compared to my old one, but it will feel different to me. Change is good.
