You Made It!

Lots of Late Night Blogging

Welcome to the new blog… it was time for a remodel, and some re-thinking in the layout, but hopefully things still look familiar to you.  I tried to make it feel as comfy and familiar as my old blogspot, just polished up a bit.

I guess you’ve noticed the name change, too.

Yeah, I have a bit to share with you about that…

But first take a look around.  Check out my About page… read Our Story if you haven’t had a chance before now… don’t worry, I’ll be right here when you come back.  Enjoy yourself….

***** (whistling)**** 

You back?  Okay then.  So let me tell you what’s been going on.

Why the Name Change?

I felt it was time to do some spring cleaning around here (the blog, that is… my house will have to wait – as usual)… and after seven years of blogging, I was ready to take the leap and get my own domain.  But when it came right down to it, OurBlessedLife didn’t seem to exactly fit.

We are definitely blessed!  And thankful, absolutely.  But that name, combined with happy smiling photos of ridiculously cute kiddos plastered all over this blog – I wondered if it would come across as if we had it all together.

And let me say right now, for the record, we do not.

We are {quite often- and in no particular order} selfish, grumbly, lazy, grouchy, discouraged, fussy, greedy, crabby, prideful, and in a word, sinful.

Broken.

There.  That’s us.  OurBlessed{Broken}Life.

Just like Jesus took the bread, and as a metaphor for Himself – and us – blessed it, broke it, and then gave it away.

That.  That is us.

And that is why you arrived at a new address today.

There is much – so much – to share with you. But for today just know that I’m so happy you’re here.  So blessed that you’ve read this far (go, you!)  And so hopeful that the Good Shepherd will somehow bless you if you come along for the ride with me.

And to celebrate, we’re having a giveaway!  I’m reading a book right now that I’m excited to tell you about and one blessed person will win a copy of it.

See you back here tomorrow?

Be Blessed!
Shannon

    Shannon, you are amazing! You don’t need sleep, do you? Otherwise I can’t imagine when you do all that you are doing ;o) Thanks for sharing your life with us.

      Haha. Annika, I do need sleep! But between late-night writing and kids who like to bombard our bed in the middle of the night, I’ve been surviving on copious amounts of caffeine :)

    You moved to WordPress!?!

    All the cool blogspot bloggers I know have been doing it. Now that I have a Mac I guess I should do it too!

    I love the new layout, and the new address!!
