Let’s get a makeover…

Gosh – that last post was much deeper than I ever intended to get here on Kate & Trudy. Nonetheless, it felt good to get it out. No more excuses now that it’s all out in the open how I feel. This blog was started in part to keep me accountable to my 2013 goals…and to keep me accountable to my happiness too.

So what do y’all do when you feel “in a funk?”

If your answer is “get a makeover,” then kudos to you for reading my mind (or the subject of this post – haha)!

That’s exactly what I decided to do after I saw Michelle Baron’s illustration work on Neely’s blog (A Complete Waste of Makeup) in September. I immediately emailed Michelle and since we didn’t yet have Trudy at home, I asked her to pencil me in for mid to late October. I also popped this goal onto my 30 Before 30 list to stay accountable!

I could not wait to get started on our illustrations and I’m THRILLED to reveal the final results today. If you’re not reading this from a web browser, you’ll want to head straight to your computer to check out the gorgeous new header featuring the Hubs and me, as well as Kate & Trudy by our feet.

We also have a darling new blog button featuring just the littles!

The rest of the blog takes on a whole new layout and design centered around the stylish new illustrations. We’re keeping it pretty simple with the focus on Michelle’s excellent work.

I am so completely in love with how this all turned out and I hope the blog makeover brings me one step closer to greater optimism. It sure makes me feel a little more motivated to start writing and creating again.

What do y’all think?!

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
