Take a Peek

I always wanted to have the blog header that you just knew it was my blog when you saw it.  Say like if you saw it on TV or something.  {I laugh}  I do like blogs that have their own personal look.  I just never seem to be able to keep a look, or if I find one or create one, I like it for only so long. 

I've always wanted to do a black look ever since I started blogging but read time and again, "do not have a black background".  So I went with white.  What's the difference?  So here it is, BLACK.  I like it {for now}. 

When I created the last header I used a tutorial that had and example more like what I have up there now.  I didn't really think I had enough pictures I would like that were my own.  Today I realized I do.  They aren't the best but they are mine.  It's a journey both in words and photos.

It's also a lot like Jenny's blog.  You see, I like her blog and I hope that she's flattered that mine now looks a lot like hers. 

Changing this took care of the comments problem I was having but now I have a problem with the extra large pictures.  Adam says, "Go big or go home", so I'm finding a way to keep the pictures big.  For some reason it's not as easy as just changing the widths in html.

And because each post is "supposed to have a picture" I thought I'd throw in a couple of my clowns.  These were from the weekend.  The back story....Henry loves hooking things Daddy does. 

I hope you are having a great week!


  1. Those pictures are cute...gotta love boys! :)

  2. I LOVE IT!

    I too read you're not supposed to have a black blog, but it's for me, and I like the look of the black with the pictures. I have tried switching back since I've gone black and it felt very glaring and noisy.

    I was just thinking this morning, "I like my blog". Not in a prideful "look at me" way, but in a restful mirror of my life way...which isn't always the way the seems as I live it.

  3. I like the look of the black! And I love your header . . . it is so cute! I wish I knew how to do that!

  4. I love it. I think it looks great and I love big pictures. Great header.

  5. Very nice job! Not that you need my help, but if you'd ever like it for future layouts, just let me know!!

  6. I love the pictures on the kids hitching the camper to his trike. If only...

    I love the large pictures but when I just added numbers to the html they would love hazy. I haven't had time to investigate that one.


Thanks for making my day!
