At the time this post goes live I will be sitting in a court room waiting for a judge to tell me that my marriage is legally over. While I know today will be hard, I’m in a good place and handling things as well as can be expected. Last month I decided that I wanted to start this next chapter of life with a new blog name and a new design. While the content might not change from what you’re used to, other than eventually posts about horrible first dates and all that crap, I still wanted a fresh start.
Love, Kelly Lorene is a name I have had in the back of my head for quite some time. While it’s not a super creative name, it’s one that I feel fits not only where I’m at now, rediscovering & focusing on loving me, but where I will eventually be – finding love again.
When it came time to get a new design I went on a search for a blog designer and was pointed in the direction of Erin from Love, Fun and Football by quite a few people. After checking out her portfolio I knew she was the girl for me. After a few emails she suggested that I get on Pinterest and see if I could find some color samples. I knew I wanted to stick with the pink and gray but I wanted shades different than I’ve had in the past. I wanted to go with a bright, fresh, clean look and when I saw the below color pallet I fell in love.
I am so excited with how everything turned out! Erin was amazing and put up with me changing my mind a thousand times, saying “whatever you think is best” more than once and flooding her inbox with emails. When I decided to have her re-do my about me page as well and she did an amazing job when I literately said, “I have no idea what to do with it… you mean you can’t do that too?” Yeah, I’m a blog designers nightmare dream! She put together a page that I absolutely love. I honestly can’t say enough good things about her.
Sadly I also had to get a new Facebook page. I hope you’ll take a few seconds to head over and like it so that you don’t miss out on anything. All other social media outlets will remain the same, but I’ve added them below in case you’re new and haven’t followed me on them yet.
I’ve also decided to open the blog back up to sponsors! You can find out all the details HERE and in honor of my new blog name, design and chapter in life use promo code “HelloLoveKL” to get 50% off any spot through Friday, March 27th!
While I might not be to excited to start this new chapter in life, I’m coming to terms with it and I am excited about having a pretty new blog as a place to share the new experiences that will be coming my way.
