I have a brand new look!

After several attempts at making over the blog myself, I finally got smart and hired a professional.  Many, many thanks to Zoe at Chic & Sassy Designs for custom-creating a blog template that finally feels like me.

I'm still on vacation until August 16 – I'm sitting on bed that's slightly too firm in a hotel room in Oakville, Ontario, Canada as I write this – so this isn't really an official post.  I'm sure I'll have lots to report when I get back. But I do have some big news to share in the meantime:

I received official word that my book will be out in July 2011!

I could not be more excited.  I know how fast time flies.  Woo hoo!
