Look on the bright side

Yep, you're in the right place. 

Do you like the new look? I was a little sick of the green and brown. I needed something a bit brighter. A bit more fun. A bit more me. I had quite a difficult time choosing between shamrocks, palm trees, ice cream, etc. But the yellow flower stood out to me, so I went with it. 

I appreciated everyone who offered to help me with a redesign—thank you. And I still definitely might be up for it. I have no clue how to change the layout or make it 3-column or any of that jazz.  But since I'm in advertising and have studied design before, I was itching to try to design (AKA play around on InDesign) a little something myself. It's super basic, but I like it.

I'm sure over the next couple of days I'll be switching colors, etc. So stay tuned. 

In the mean time, I'm going to finish whipping up my second crock pot meal (mandarin orange chicken) and head to bed a bit early. We're getting a blizzard tomorrow morning, just in time for the morning commute, so that means I have to leave super early to get to work on time. Oh how I love Chicago winters.

Ohh, the chicken sounds good. I'll have to get a crock pot when I move back to the US.

I'll try to be crazy so you can live vicariously, you were in Galway right (I think you just posted that, about the reunion?) I'm going up in 2 weeks with my college roomie when she comes to visit, any good places you recommend, especially pubs? I was there once last October, but it would be great to know of a fun place.

And I quote Legally Blonde and Mean Girls like it is my job :)

I'm digging the new look. It's very bright and cheery! I'm so sorry about the blizzard. I'll warn you now not to read my weather posts!
