OH MY GOODNESS!! After many months (no worries Josh) I have my own website. It’s mine, it’s all mine! I’m still very new to doing a lot of this and it will take some trial and error. I am supposed to be getting a brand spanking new camera, like a really good one guys, that records videos too for when Kerrigan gets here so out with my Iphone pictures and in with none grainy videos and clear sharp pictures.
Again, this is all a work in progress and I have to remind myself that I’m not Cara Loren or Jaclyn Hill, I’m just doing this for myself and for those that enjoy following me. (Not to say I wouldn’t want to become something of what they are) but this website is my baby, I’m sensitive to it & I put a lot of thought and heart into what I post because sometimes it is really personal.
So since I am still quite new at all of this, I thought I would upload something very personal that I haven’t wanted to share yet because I didn’t have a way of putting it up on my old website without it looking cheesy, here I can post the video directly onto my blog. I think this is the perfect “first” post on my website because it really is the start of the rest of our lives. It doesn’t need a lot of explaining but this was taken mere minutes after I peed on the stick…& if you know my husband, this is honestly the perfect response (after he decides to listen to me). It makes my heart smile so big…and don’t mind our cat in the background.
There are two big things that are not finished yet, my friend Maleri Schilling did an amazing job designing my custom watermark for Lipstick & Lavender as well as the clip art for my title page. My brother has it on his to do list to upload all of this and I need to work on how to use the water mark for L&L on my pictures and other things. If any of you really know me, you know that I would rather just have someone tell me how to do it then figuring it out myself. I don’t read directions, I just kind of do it, so to have all this new stuff that I have to learn, is kind of torture. A good torture, but still.
So cheers to my first official post on my new website. If you look at past posts they may be formatted funky or not have a display image, just keep in mind it’s a process and things will be getting tweaked almost daily if not weekly.
Thanks for all your love and high fives with this project of mine. It means the world.
