*Bookworms wave furiously!*
Is it warm where you are?
Well for the bookworms
(except for Cutie who lives in a super warm, super secret location)
the weather is starting to warm up.
Leaves are budding.
Flowers are blooming.
Robins have been sighted.
Spring in all of it’s wonderment is upon us folks
and it is GLORIOUS!!!
Which leads us to thoughts of spring time activities.
Like spring cleaning!
For a while now, Danny,
our webmaster extraordinaire,
has been toying with the idea of a new layout for the blog.
And since she knows how we Bookworms loved the old layout,
she had to do…
Something a little sleeker…
Something a little different.
And finally she’s pinned it down!!
Today, we are presenting our new face!
Not only are we pleased as punch
to have this gorgeous new layout,
it also eliminates the problem we’ve had of late
of our site taking longer and longer to load.
Our new layout should load faster
which should make everyone happier.
And here and now Danny has to say: A big Thank You
to Parajunkee who helped with
a problem that drove me nuts!
Thank you girl!! You are made of awesome!
Is that all you say?
*the Bookworms shake their heads*
