New Blog Features and Photos of the Week

As you may have noticed (or not), I changed my blog a little bit. Removed some of the clutter, expanded it, and added some fun new pages to read. See the tabs at the top. I didn't like the "pages" option that Blogger gave me, so of course I had to be difficult and make my own. This was a lot harder than it looks. I spent a good couple of hours figuring out the html codes, creating text images for buttons, creating corresponding pages, and of course linking them all together. Just when I thought I had it right and went to test it, each tab opened in a new window. Not what I wanted. I fixed it and it's all good now! YAY for me!! I feel like such a total nerd at how happy this makes me! Some pages are still in the process, but should be up and running in a few days. I'm also debating whether or not I want to even attempt to make a new header and blog button. If someone more computer code literate is feeling extra helpful, then by all means, please help me out! I would truly appreciate it!

As promised, here are some of my favorite recent shots. Mostly I've just been playing around taking random shots.

Me, overexposed, testing out different settings. I like it anyways :)

Our rooftop, smoke in the setting sun.

Icicle melting

Finding direction.

What does it mean? haha, it's just one of the random birds that sit atop the trees in our village.
Oh and notice the lovely color of the sky. This is NOT a black and white photo, just a gray day haha!!

Snow has all melted this week, Ariana got to choose her own shoes. No more snow boots!

Me in the mirror. Random, I know.

 On the walk, this moss and sun peeking from the trees was calling my name.

All the melting snow and a little sun flare.

I'm super excited for this weekend. We are going out of town! This is going to be our first trip out of Germany since we moved here 4 months ago. I'm sooooo excited! I hope the weather is nice, so I can take tons of pictures!

Happy weekend to you all!!
