Every year about this time, I find myself in a reflective sort of mood. I enjoy looking back and trying to put everything that's happened into perspective. Today, cleaning out a folder on my computer, I found all of these old headers for our blog. These represent hours of work- I don't mind telling you that our blog layout is my baby. It's an area where I can flex my creative muscle and get out of the box for awhile - it brings me so much joy. I thought some of you might enjoy a peek back in time at the evolution of a header.

Inaugural Edition (August 2007) through August 2008

August 2008 - October 2008

October 2008 - December 2008

December 2008 - January 2009

February 2009 - May 2009

May 2009 - September 2009

September 2009 - December 2009

December 2009 - Present

Hope you enjoyed that. Stay tuned for our all new look in 2009 2010- I think you will enjoy it. If any of you want to make a custom header or tweak your blog a little bit, let me know. I'm no expert, but I enjoy helping and I can usually find a way to get it done.

Also, we're going to be taking the blog private (too many weird-o's out there), so let us know if you want to be included and we'll get you set up.

Thanks, and God Bless all of you.
