Happy Saturday to all of you! I’m just popping in today to let you know about some changes coming to my blog, Town and Country Living.
I started my blog seven years ago! I can’t believe it’s been that long ago since I nervously published my first post about my daughter Bridget’s burlap and lace wedding.
The first time I showed pictures of the outside of my house was back in November of 2011. I think I was using a simple point and shoot camera back then.
The most nervous post of all time was when I shared my kitchen on the blog. I thought everyone would hate it but I stepped out of my comfort zone and hit the dreaded “publish” button.
It took me a full year before I was brave enough to share a full room tour of the kitchen, and let me tell you, it was filled with plenty of angst and anxiety. But then a wonderful thing happened. I received over 100 positive comments about my kitchen which left me in appreciative tears of joy!
I eventually forked over some cash for a DSLR Nikon camera because Christmas was coming and I planned to feature my Christmas home tour. Omigoodness! I’ll never forget how awful that was. I couldn’t even figure out how to get the camera to focus and cried because I just spent all that money for nothing.
But I buckled down and started reading about how to operate my camera. I managed to learn enough to take semi-decent photos for Christmas. That first Holiday Home Tour caught the eye of an editor and earned me a multi-page spread in Country Sampler’s Christmas issue of 2013! I still love my vintage Christmas tree from back then.
My blog journey has been fun and interesting and I hope to keep it going for many years to come! Along the way, changes are made like a new design, improved logo, or new topics.
I’m happy to announce the upcoming change for my blog! I decided to get a new blog design, a new logo, and a new name!! Town and Country Living will transition to Jennifer Zuri in about a month.
My content will stay the same so you’ll still be able to enjoy home tours on Sunday along with other home decor, garden, and food inspiration posts along the way. And no worries – if you log onto town-n-country-living.com, you’ll be taken directly to jenniferzuri.com. Any photos you might have pinned will still come directly to my blog.
Changing my blog to my name is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now. I finally decided to pull the trigger. There are a few other things I’ve been thinking of doing lately and a new blog name makes it easier to keep everything under one site and one umbrella.
So stay tuned! Other than the new name and web design, not much else is changing. I’ve contracted Moonsteam Design – Sara is a fabulous designer and I think you’re going to love the new look which you’ll see in about a month. For now, keep coming to town-n-country-living.com!
