Yep, you're in the right place!  

I got tired of the old look and decided to change the blog's background but, BOY, was that a challenge!  For all you bloggers out there who want to create a welcoming and warm blog for your visitors, I sure hope you had an easier time than I did!

After choosing a new background template from Cutest Blog On The Net, trying to eliminate the old one that kept showing back up, seeking help from my brilliant and beautiful nieces who have been blogging longer than me, reading and re-reading Blogger's and Cutest Blog's instructions, finally giving up on the new one and selecting one of Blogger's boring backgrounds, I had a headache and it was past my bedtime.  I would tackle the mess I had created in the morning and, hopefully, visitors wouldn't wonder who sneaked in while they weren't looking and made a royal mess of things.

I was just about ready to give up when, lo and behold, instead of Blogger's blah background, the template from Cutest Blog mysteriously appeared!  I still haven't figured out what happened to Blogger's background, or the old background you were accustomed to, or how the new one over-rode them.  I'm just glad it's there!  Somewhere along the path of attempting to freshen up the look of the blog and from my perspective, failing miserably, all seems to be well...for now!  Who knows what will happen when I take my eyes off it for a moment!  It seems to have a mind of its own!

So, I hope you like it...because, at this point, it will just have to stay there!  Maybe a few months from now, after my nieces finish educating me on the do's and don't's of background changes, I'll take another stab at it.  I'm still receiving new and useful tips from them as I write this!  Until then, I hope you come back often to visit me.

Oh, and by the way, I love to hear comments, so please leave a note after your visit...and be sure to mention your own blog so I can visit yours! 

Have a great week, everyone!
