Absolutely thrilled!

Ack! I am all teary eyed and bowled over with emotion as I stare at my new blog design. From the beginning, October 2009, I have had a vision in my mind of what I wanted this space to look and feel like and voilà... here it is even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined thanks to Franchesca the outstanding creative force behind small bird studios!

Franchesa was such a pleasure to work with. She took all of the elements I was looking for and made them flow. I know I am not the easiest person to work with as I am a little on the Type A side. That being said, every little tweak I wished to change, Franchesca had done within minutes. She was courteous, conscious of what I wanted, she aimed to please at all times, and above all she made me feel as though she had all of the time in the world to make my space my own, which I know with a little one running around is not an easy task!

What makes Franchesca even more endearing is she is one of the ones who 'gets it'. She too is a Babyloss Mom, she lost her sweet Jenna Belle, so she knows exactly what this space means to me. She believes in the power of writing to heal and to help others... so much so that she offers a discount on her services to babyloss families as well as those who struggle with infertility AND a portion of every blog design order is donated to a different organization/ cause each month that aids the baby loss community. What an inspiration!

I have 2 other very special women to thank for making my blog what it is also.

Claire's stunning peace dove photo, that holds the middle space in my header, was made by another truly remarkable babyloss mom, CarlyMarie, mommy to Christian. You can see her beautiful work and make special request orders at her site here:

And a special thank you to my dear friend Karen who sent the firework heart in the right hand space in my header to me this past New Years Eve. She has found and forwarded many 'winks' my way and this is one of my favorites. She and her husband Brian have captured many breathtaking snapshots of people, places, and animals all around the world. To see more of their work please check out their site here.

A million times thank you would never be enough.
