My two closest friends commented to me (at separate times) that they liked the new banner on the blog.
Of course, I was flattered, since I spent the majority of my New Year's Eve working on it while watching the ball drop on TV.
I suppose it shouldn't have taken me THAT long to do my banner...it isn't that complicated a task. I think I'm just a slow learner/worker. Hmmm....so if you're good at stuff like online design, don't be a hater for me being in the preschool class of blog header design. Thank you very much.
Anyway, both of these friends told me the header made me look like a world traveler. HA! Me? A world traveler? How cool does that sound?
Full disclosure, I have been to lots of places with my parents growing up and with my husband, but the funny thing is that three of the 5 pictures were taken last summer on our family vacation. The other two were from a whirlwind trip to Paris (3 days total...NOT enough time to see lots, but enough to walk blisters on our feet) and an ill-fated anniversary trip to the Keys. That one lasted exactly one night- not even 24 hours because a hurricane was bearing down on Florida and we had to high-tail it out of there!
How do you pick pictures for backgrounds or collages? If you have a blog, how do you pick the pictures for your header, if you have one? My deciding factor was color. I had a bunch of pictures I was playing with--pictures of the house, my kiddos, Southern stuff--but they looked blah. I wanted things that were different in color. The result you see is what I put together while watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest and Whoever Else Is Popular At The Moment.
Now you have insight into my thought process.
