So much for waiting til the weekend.....

I couldn't help myself.  I went ahead and changed everything.  I hope you like it!  I think I really like the way the blog looks.  
But who knows....I might be changing it back later.

I feel like I need to explain more about why the big change.
I've been thinking about changing my blog name for a while.  If you go to the very beginning of the blog, it's all about my pregnancy with Em and all the complications that followed.  Honestly, I thought about never writing on here again.  Life with 2 kids was horribly hard.  But one day I logged back in and started writing.  {Quick side note....I'm a big believer in journaling.  I've had a diary/journal for as long as I can remember.  I think that's why I got so into blogging.  It's a new and improved way to journal}  Once I started writing, I started reading other blogs.  I only knew blogging as "Mom Blogs." I had no clue how many young people were getting into the blogging world and how many friendships are created because of it.  Slowly the blog turned from general updates about life to me opening up and sharing my life with the entire world.  It's become more of me than just the family.  And I'm ok with that.  I share what's going on in my life, how I feel, and what I love.  I don't feel like the blog is any less about my family.  I think it's a good mix between me and my family.  I could not be prouder of what I'm putting out here.  It's all from the heart and that's all that matters.  

I have to thank all the Tampa girls for kinda pushing me in this direction.  We went around the table saying who we are and what our blog is, and you know what?  I couldn't remember the wording of my title.  What did that say about me and this lil blog?  Definitely opened my eyes a little.  Then enter the whole Twitter thing.  Yes I joined because of peer pressure.  I'm not ashamed of it either.  But anyways, I was trying to come up with a clever name and was getting help from Lauren.  She threw out a couple suggestions and it came to me.....Life with my Loves!  I fell in love, since that's exactly what it life with my 3 loves!  

So from now on, my tiny space of internet property will be a true representation of me!
