Two Teens And Their Mama: Welcome To My New Home

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Welcome To My New Home

A few months ago, I mentioned some changes coming to the blog.

Ta Da!

Earlier this year, I realized that Two Teens And Their Mama didn't really fit me anymore.  I spent a lot of time thinking about how I wanted to move forward, and if I should even continue blogging.  In the end, I knew I couldn't walk away, because it's brought me so much happiness and many new friendships.

Obviously I'm still a mama, and I'll continue to write about the boys and my struggles to transition to the empty nest.  But there's life beyond raising these two kiddos, and I'm trying to focus on the next chapter of my life, figuring out My New Happy.

There's some tweaking to do, but I hope you'll enjoy the changes.  My friend Rena at The Blogging 911 was a huge help, and I highly recommend her if you need design, maintenance, or virtual assistant work.  She's knowledgeable, friendly, and very attentive.  Head over to her blog to enter a giveaway for a year's worth of website maintenance!

It's Wednesday, and my stylish friends at The Blended Blog are debuting a new style series for your October.


Fall is in the air, and this week we're styling sweaters.  I came back from Paris and promptly got sick, which means I haven't been getting dressed or taking outfit photos, so I'm sharing a look from last year.  In early fall I tend to wear a lot of cardigans, so I can take them off if the temps warm up later in the day.  This leopard print is one of my favorites.
