Hopes and Dreams

I'm sure you can tell but I've gotten a makeover!
Yes I've been bragging about it for weeks now but it is finally finished and ready for the public to see :)
Please go mess around and feel free to touch whatever you like!

Now I thought I would share why this makeover was so necessary. If you have been reading my thoughts and projects for any length of time you know I just graduated with my Bachelors of Fine Art. Yes I am ecstatic that I have my degree but can not wait to get back to school! Trust me Reed is having to slow my down on applying to graduate programs until we figure out life in the real world. Also, you know that we just moved to the good ole town of York SC. Reed got a dream job offer and we are now living in the beautiful boondocks of our home state of South Carolina. And what does all of that have to do with a blog makeover? Everything!

We are starting a new chapter and still figuring out what it feels like to get our feet wet. So I decided what better time to really jump in head first to the blogging world. I've been tip toeing around for about 2 years now, only posting when I felt I had something interesting to say and not really trying to connect to the blogging world too much. Well all of that has changed and I am now going full force! And I needed a new look to go along with that.

So I partnered up with Brielle of 3eleven and she created all of the beautiful new design you see here! She was so great to work with and did everything in 1 day!! I KNOWWWWW I had to work hard to catch up! I had big plans and thought I would have longer with her working but she was speedy quick, and I was way behind.

But I still managed to get together a fabulous giveaway to celebrate this new look featuring some awesome shops like Razzberry Fizz and Recipe for Crazy. Each of these cute shops agreed to help me spoil one of you fabulous readers.
The Fizz has agreed to get y'all off on the right foot for the school year with a fun new Lilly Pulitzer planner. Being a previous employee of The Fizz I know how hot these items can be and let me tell you, y'all are lucky they are willing to GIVE one to you :)

And Lesley at Recipe for Crazy is being super sweet by adding in one of her personal designed prints! I got to do a little shopping in her beautiful Etsy shop and picked out my favorite and hope at least some of you like it as much as I do!

And as for me I decided I was gonna really spoil y'all :) You get the first edition of this scarf that was just added to the shop! Plus I'm adding in a $25 Etsy gift card! That means you can shop where ever you want in the fabulous world of all things handmade and vintage!!

So don't be shy!! ENTER ENTER ENTER! We have teamed up with getting you as many ways to enter as possible so now it is up to you :) I hope you enjoy the new design and the new blog that will be coming your way on a regular basis from now on! Good luck and can't wait to get to know ALL OF YOU better :)
