Morning, Blogfaces!

What y’all think of my new header? My awesome friend, Dara, made it for me. I’m so picky and it took four weeks with a lot of minor detail changes, but we (she) finally came up with the beautiful creation above! I love it. If you would like Dara to make you a header, visit her blog, and just ask! She went to school for graphic design, so she’ll make ya a good one!

Moving on…
