Good morning! Notice anything new around here? (If you don't, that's okay - the changes are subtle). With all of the other changes a few people are making around blogland (including Ashten, and Kate + Adam) I was inspired to make a few changes myself. You can check out my new "About Kalyn" page here and my new "Popular Posts" page here! I am still working on a few minor details that will hopefully be surfacing in the next few days.
In the meantime, I've been busy busting my patootie at work, training for my new position and almost dying from nerves that I'm going to the Atlanta Bloggers Meetup tomorrow evening (where I'll be meeting Rachael and Becca, eeeee!!!).
In addition, I'm trying to hold myself accountable with the Summer Reading Challenge, since I kind of fell of the wagon in the month of July. I've got a busy August ahead of me if I want to fully complete the challenge.
