New Name & New Look!

Things look a little different around here, huh? After a few years of blogging, I decided it was time for a change! I started this blog about four years ago when we were planning our wedding and house hunting (we were nuts for doing those two things at the same time). It was a great way to document both of those things and I never stopped blogging after we got married. I like being able to keep family and friends, both near and far, updated on our life and I've also fallen in love with the blogging community altogether.

I haven't blogged nearly as often over the past year, but I plan to get back in to a regular blogging routine. I thought revamping the blog's look and name to something more fitting would be a great way to start. I purchased this template from DesignerBlogs on Etsy. It came with great instructions and installation was pretty easy. I made some small changes to the template and still have some things I'm playing with to make it just right, but I'm super happy with the way it turned out!

Along with a new look, I wanted a new name for this blog. I wanted something more personal to me and what this blog is about. "This Crazy Thing Called Life" was definitely fitting, but generic. You might be thinking well, "It's A Long Story" is pretty generic too. BUT for those of you that don't know, my last name is Long. So the title is all about my story. Or I should say OUR story. It's a LONG Story....get it?  :)

I'm so excited about this fresh start for the blog! Thank you to my readers and fellow bloggers, for making this blogging thing something I have fallen in love with. <3
