Our new look thanks to Penny Lane Design {Custom Blog Makeover Giveaway Jun 7 - Jun 13}

How do you like our new look?
I am LOVING it.

I really had wanted to change our look at our one year anniversary but I thought coming back after my renewal vacation that a change would be nice.
Once I was committed to the change, I knew exactly who I wanted to give us our new look.

Marina does some amazing work and having worked with her before I knew how pleasurable the experience would be. And she did not disappoint.
I was able to send her our new family pictures and give her a couple of ideas towards the direction I was looking for. And she did her magic.

Here is a glimpse at some of her other works...

I have had the honor of hosting a Penny Lane Design giveaway before {check out the winner of the custom blog design Steals, Deals, & Heels.}

And now I get another opportunity to share Penny Lane with one of you!
One lucky follower will get a custom blog makeover {valued at $100!!!}
Here is what is included:
- Blog Makeover
- 6 sidebar titles
- post signature

Are you excited?!
Here is how you can enter {you MUST leave one comment for each entry}:
- Must be a follower of my blog {already following that counts}
- Hop on over and follow Marina {already following that counts}
- Blog, tweet, and/or FB about the giveaway

Giveaway open until Midnight on Jun 13. And the winner will be announced Jun 14. Winner will be chosen via random.org

Marina is so wonderful and talented. She did my current blog design, but I'd love to enter the giveaway to win a new look. We're expecting baby #2 this week, so it would be fun to give our family blog a makeover.
