Hello Again!

Hello to all who may still follow Living Graciously! Just thought it's been awhile since I've stopped in to say "hi" and remind you that I now blog over at Vignettes my new (and permanent) home. So come visit me over there whydoncha? I'd love to reconnect with you. We're talking about friendship this week!

P.S. I don't have GFC over there because Google has discontinued it for all Wordpress blogs, but you can still follow Vignettes via Facebook, Twitter, RSS, or get it delivered right to your e-mail inbox everyday if you'd like to keep up with my goings on. Hope to see you at the new digs! ~Kristin

Hello Dear Readers!
     I know it's a surprise to hear from me over here in my ex-home, but after a few weeks now living over at Kristin's Veranda, I've realized that the Google Friend Connect feed is not showing up on your dashboards. Even though I thought I was able to "take you all with me" when I moved, apparently the GFC dashboard didn't want to make the move! BUT! You can still have me show up on your board if you choose, you just need to trot on over to Kristin's Veranda, click on Vignettes and voila! you're on my new blog. Then you need to re-follow me on the GFC widget, and Vignettes should begin to show up on your feed right away. Let me know if you have trouble with it and we'll see what we can figure out!
     I've really been enjoying my new home, but I've really missed YOU, all of my dear readers - and after some looking into things, realized that you were all left over here high and dry. How sad. I hope you'll make the move with me today! See you on the Veranda! Oh, and don't forget, you can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter too (if you just can't get enough hahaha!).

Drumroll Please...

Today is the day!
I'm so excited to introduce you to:
Not just a blog mind you, but a bonafide website!

I hope you'll come join me for my very first official blog post over at "Vignettes".
Please be sure and make the necessary updates on your computer, so that you'll never miss a post!
See you over at the new place...

Testers, Testers, One, Two, Three!

Hi girls!
     Today (well, all weekend really), I'm looking for a few sweet people who are willing to help me test out my brand new website! That's's almost ready :-). So if you've got a good eye for web design, and/or you don't mind clicking around a bit to see if everything is working, please leave me a comment, and I'll contact you with my new web address. You'll be one of the first to have a little sneak peek!
     I've been trying to transfer my blogger feed to the new site, so if any of you got this (or Friday's Foto Felicity) in your google reader today, would you please let me know?
     Thanks a million my dears!

Living On The Fence

Ok, I admit it. I've been living in a double-dipping world this week. One foot in Blogger, the other in Wordpress. It's been confusing. It's been challenging. It's been enlightening. It's been a whole lot of time on tech help chat! My bum is about to fall off, my neck is one big huge crick (how do people with computer jobs that have to sit all day do it?). Ugh. BUT, by the end I will be able to shout (hopefully) I DID IT ALL BY MYSELF!!!! That's the goal anyway :-)

SO, all that to say - "Hello! I'm still (sorta) here! Thanks for stopping by!" I am hoping beyond hope to have things up and running by Monday, and can't wait to welcome you all to my new digs! Lots of cleaning, and decorating, and the like to do in the meantime :-). I'm sure you understand. -
By the hydrangeas started blooming this week ::squeal::

Today, let's do something fun. Just 'cause: Leave me a comment with what you are MOST looking forward to doing this summer. Can't wait to hear all about them...I'm sure they will help to brighten my brain-weary day! While you're at it: Anybody interested in reviving the old "Kindred Connection" party we had over at Windy Poplars last summer? Participation was pretty good, and it was wonderful getting to know some of you better! Or do you prefer not to participate in weekly parties during your summer blogging?

What I Wore Wednesday

Finally! More than one days worth of what I wore! Still not remembering to ask my fabulous photographer very often, so you'll  have to put up with a few mirror shots and self-timers, but it's an improvement! And now, for your outfit perusing pleasure:

I don't know about you, but during the summer, I live more in dresses and skirts than anything else.

This is my favorite (and only) new dress this year. I like to call it my "Little House on the Prairie Dress".

It's simple, and sweet, and feminine. It's from JCrew.

My top: Ross Capris: St. Johns Bay - JCPenney
I had to include this little shot because hubs and I got ready to head out on a date one night, and what do we come out with? That's right. Perfectly coordinated outfits. Does it get any cheesier? We didn't realize it until we were in the car and it was too late. Sheesh. And if you were about to say "Oh! Nobody will notice!". Let me inform you that the teeny bopper cashier at the grocery store most certainly did, and wasted no time in pointing it out!
Light. Flowy. Fresh. If only those things described ME! :-) Top: JCrew, Skirt: Steinmart, Belt: NY&Co.

Hello maxi dresses! I have missed you! Dress: Belk
This was a groovy cut-you-own-length dress. So I cut my length off, and made straps out of it!

A Chuckle

So maybe I'm easily entertained, but this strawberry made me laugh. I don't really know why, but it did. Look at its wee sprig of a cap! Pretty adorable if you ask me...
That's all for today! Busy moving...
