[love] New Blog Layout!

Isn't she pretty?
Gorgeous colors, beautiful font, a touch of leopard print (of course)!

I am adoring my brand spankin' new blog layout. I knew I wanted to have something one of a kind, so I referred to my dear friend Savannah. You may have heard of her. She blogs at OH SO PRETTY: the DIARIES with Casey. I know, I have famous friends :)

Anyways, I told Savannah my vision and she created this gorgeousness you see! Didn't she do a great job?! TELL YOUR FRIENDS. She's so easy to work with and totally cool about making corrections or editing something. She is one of the most creative people I know and she will do great work for you! She has a design website too where you can check out all of her info, pricing, portfolio work, etc.

Let's go over some new tidbits, shall we?

My new header is above, obviously displaying the blog name. Here is my button where you can add it to YOUR blog and share the love.

Here are all of the ways you can keep up with me and this ol' blog via the web. Bloglovin' (another way to follow blogs), Facebook (for post updates), Follow (via Google Reader, I believe, which is how I follow all of my blogs: super easy!), Instagram (where you can see extra photos from my everyday), Pinterest (so you can see what I'm stalking), and Twitter (to read my random tweets and thoughts about nothing). Click away- located on the right hand side of the blog!

New labels! "To Dwell" will contain all of my posts having to do with my house, our dwelling place if you will.

"To Love" will have posts pertaining to my life: things I am loving at the moment... basically, everything else that doesn't fit in the other categories given :)

"To Make" of course will hold my crafts and DIY endeavors, along with sewing projects!

"To Teach" will be all about KINDERGARTEN! And school in general :)

And you know I have to have a "Photo a Day" button! No one has joined my party yet... maybe because I haven't offered a "link" party option, but we comment to one another, ladies! You can use this button to share your photos from everyday and I will feature you!

So there you have it: a new glimpse into the brand new "Everyday with the Jays". Professional, fun, sleek, and classic. Love it!

Happy Tuesday! My orientation at school went AMAZINGLY last night and I'm so excited to teach and begin the year with my new babies!

"We are His portion and He is our prize, drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes. If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking. So Heaven meets Earth like an unforeseen kiss and my heart turns violently inside of my chest. I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way that He loves us. Oh how He loves us. Oh how He loves us. Oh how He loves." -David Crowder
