Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Alright my lovelies, this week the challenge is Change, or more importantly a change in process. I actually really like this challenge, it brought to mind so many wonderful memories and I’m so happy to relive them and share them with you 😀

First, one enormous change just this past year was the wedding of my awesome Bestie to her awesome husband (my Bestie-in-Law as we’ve dubbed one another) earlier this year. In truth, I found the idea of her getting married just as terrifying as I did exciting. I mean, what if our friendship changed? What if he and I didn’t get along (which was a silly fear considering I already thought of him as a great addition to our group lol)? But then, how could I not be happy and excited for one of my most favorite people on the Earth marrying the man who made her happy? And in the end, their marriage did change things, she and he moved further away (a mere hour and a half, but still, no more random visits) and I gained a wonderful Bestie-in-Law, so like in all things, it was a give and take. But ultimately, this change was a thrilling experience — even the scary bits — and I love the results! Besides, I was one awesome Maid of Honor, if I do say so myself.

And I do.

And there’s also the fabulous new addition we have to our family this year, my cousin had her first baby a few months ago and I was so thrilled to welcome the first of the next generation of our family into the world! He’s a wonderful, adorable, and downright cute as all get out, change in progress!

Here’s a little picture I snapped at his baby shower:

And of course, one of the biggest changes of my life was the adventure that was my years spent at FSU 😀

The Lure of the Unknown…

Hello my lovelies, hopefully you’re having a lovely and relaxed Sunday morning/afternoon (Vampire Diaries marathon anyone?). I’ve been busy making breakfast — cheesy omelets and sweet tea, mmm southern goodness — playing on Pottermore, and now I’m settling back to watch some good old Damon and Elena love/hate/drama fest, season four edition! Delena fan forever people ❤

But vampire love triangles and angst aside, you’ve probably noticed I’ve given the blog a little facelift. I got bored last night and the urge for change was just too much so I just had to tinker! I think the new look is more mysterious than the last, a bit more unknown and magical as opposed to a faery land.  I’m always a bit slow to change things because I like knowing when you visit the site, you feel welcome and at home, but I also don’t want Moonstonemaiden to get stagnant because I’m a bit like Stewie and can’t handle change. Really, I almost had a fit the other day when I noticed my brother moved icons on my desktop, I just, I just can’t…

But sometimes I actually do crave something new and here’s the result lol. So I want to know what you think my lovelies, do you like the new look or do you miss the old? Can you appreciate the lure of the unknown? Shall we take a walk on the wild side together? Let me know! 😀
