This week’s favorite thing is my finished website redesign.

Website Redesign

Even though I don’t have an ocean at my disposal, I can almost feel the sand between my toes! It’s that ahhhhh moment when you finish a huge project and finally have a chance to breath. I don’t think I even realized I’ve been holding my breath for the last 3 days as I tackled a major website redesign.

For all of you who visited my site in the middle of the chaos last week…thanks for hanging in there with me. It is definitely not a job for the faint of heart. But, the worst is behind me and I am so happy to have the bones in place, although I will continue to make little tweaks along the way…cause that’s just how I roll.

I’m planning to write about my experience as an amateur web designer in future post. You see a lot written by experts who know the in’s and out’s of web design, but I’ve got a few insights to share for the web amateur.

My finished site redesign was an easy choice for this week’s favorite thing.
