Design this blog!

I started this blog January 2013 using and a theme called Fresh & Clean. This theme has been retired. It’s time to pick a new look for my blog and you can help!

Here are a few I’m considering. Please let me know your favorites in the comments. I’d also love to hear what’s important to you: size of the text, the font, the photography or something else!

  2. #1 or #3 – I like #1 because of the picture layout and focus on all of your awesome pictures; I like #3 because it’s optimized for reading. 🙂 I’m a big minimalist fan for blogs, too!

    1. ⭐ Thank you! Great details on your preference–I appreciate hearing those. Ampersand uses Roboto as its default typeface. It is a definite contender. Have a wonderful week! 😀

  3. I started from the bottom up, so #1 was the last one I saw. And said Yesss. . . Your photos are a wonderful tie-in to your blogs.
