Happy Two Years to Across the Branch!

I did not plan it this way, but it turns out that Jackie from Memories by Design finished my blog design on exactly the second anniversary of my very first blog post -- exactly 362 posts ago!

So I'm celebrating two years of blogging fun with a new, fresh design that I'm crazy about. I gave Jackie very little (in a lot of words!) to go on, and she came up with something perfect!

I'm putting it here so if I change it down the road I can still see the old designs!

Jackie made me some cute sidebar label icons,

a favicon that you see in your navigation bar,

and a blog button that those who read my blog can post on their blogs! (I really don't know anyone who loves me enough to do this -- except maybe my family -- but I like the whole button idea anyway. It's cute.)

Thank you Jackie for such a wonderful design, and happy two years blogging to me and Across the Branch!

Edit: Just so you know if you read this before I changed it... although I am usually pretty good at math, I was not able to subtract 2008 from 2010. I originally put that I had been blogging for three years... oops.

I figured you'd catch that mishap! I was sittin' there thinking...ugh, Lin and Ben have not been married longer than Cameron and me! Love the new design...if I knew what grabbing a button was, I'd grab your's for sure!
