New Look, Same Blog

welcome to the official unveiling of the redesigned stork drop zone! ...except it's not really the stork drop zone anymore.

i've had the stork drop zone since 2008 and not only have i changed, but so has my blog over all this time. i've evolved from obsessing about infertility to blogging about what i love: my family, my photography, my crafts, my other hobbies, as well as random thoughts and, of course, infertility. this is my space, where i can let myself be me, so it needs to reflect who i am today and what my life has become.

why the new name? well, i thought long and hard about what to call my blog and i chose nest building 101, because life is a classroom (cheesy, huh?) and the things i'm learning in it are centered around the home, my nest. this new name leaves it open for me to blog about anything under my roof (ie. family, crafting, interior design, etc.), as well as my struggle with infertility. (don't worry, fellow IFers. i'll be back in the trenches before the year is out, so you'll be hearing more about that journey along the way.)

i'm really excited about this change! it feels polished and sort of grown up, but still fun. heck, i feel like i'm the one who got the make-over! :) but i hope that you all like it as much as i do, that you feel comfortable here, that it feels familiar to you. this is the start of some big stuff to come and i hope you'll all be a part of it!

the first thing on my agenda is to do a give-away next week. are you curious to know what i'm giving away? well, you'll just have to wait till then. just try not to go crazy obsessing over just how awesome it's going to be in the meantime, though. ;)

and while you're here, feel free to grab my new button!
