Brand Spankin' New Look & Book Depository Giveaway!

So about a week ago, I tried my hand at DIY blog design and as some of you may know, it was one big epic fail. The funny thing is, the next day Rachel at Paraiunkee Design emailed me saying I was next in line for a blog makeover. Oh the irony! Anyway, the new design is all installed and I couldn't be happier. It's just fantastic!

A big thanks goes out to Rachel for doing such an amazing job and for being patient with me since I'm not quite up to speed on all the blogging lingo and can be an uber perfectionist. I highly recommend Parajunkee Design to anyone looking to upgrade their blog! Take it from me, let a professional handle it.


To celebrate the launch of the new Good Books, Good Coffee, Good Life, One lucky commenter will win two books of his/her choosing from Book Depository!
