.....new look, new face and rock the vote part 2......

....I have learned so much about myself in the past year....one thing for certain is that I do thrive on busy, crazy and hectic times because it is through the chaos and bustle that I fully submerge only to savor and relish in quiet.....I enjoy managing and prioritizing a hectic household, yet I also enjoy a peaceful evening with my babies snuggled beside me and Stefan wedged in the middle of us all.....I completely disengage from any distractions and it is in those moments when I am completely present......

......I am a libra, after all......and although I do not know anything about astrology or follow horescopes, I do know the the libra sign always has a scale to sum it up in one picture.....ebb and flow, baby.....ying and yang....it's a balancing act and Momma does love to balance.....

.....in between packing, moving, unpacking, organizing, preparing for Thanksgiving and prepping for Elsie's fifth birthday on Saturday, I also decided this blog needed a facelift......it also needed to tell a better story and accurately describe who we are as a family.....so my talented, patient and creative set of other eyes, Jacquelinne from Smitten Blog Designs managed to make the changes and did them beautifully.....

....I humbly introduce you to Our blessed beautiful suburban story and credit my old high school friend, Nikki who emailed me with some new name ideas upon our recent move out of the city......I don't know how she has time to think of creative names for my blog when she just had a set of twins, adding two more boys to her family of (now) six is beyond me......just another Momma in my life that I admire, respect and draw to for inspiration......

....I am thrilled with the new look and the new name, but plan on keeping the same family, same content and same adventures for those who choose to check in and read.....

....I am also thrilled to announce that Circle of Moms has nominated this blog for another category in the Mommy blog world......thank you to those of you who voted for me in the Top 25 NYC Mom blogs.....we won that category and now we have been recognized for Top 25 Family blogs....I would love your support as this blog continues to gain readers, introduces me to other Mommas in the blog world and allows me to capture this precious time with my children.....

....you can vote once per day until Nov. 29, 2012....



....thank you for your support, for reading and for sharing your life with me too.....

.....savoring it all......

Okay, I guess your byline is a bit more appropriate and catchy than my "Our Slightly Slower, but more Spacious Suburban Story" suggestion.

I love the new look. And I'm pleased to hear you have a professional doing it. Because up until this point I was comparing our blogs and feeling pretty computer illiterate.
