A birthday week and more gardening | Weekly Snapshot

Happy Ascension Day! Happy Memorial Day! Happy Africa Day! No matter what you are celebrating this weekend (or not), have fun and stay safe!

The Boy Turned TwoThe little guy turned two this week. He sort of understood that it was a special day and that he was the star of the show. He took a lot of pleasure in all the birthday songs that his family sang to him - he also added some of his own tunes to the mix. Honestly, some days it feels so hard to believe that he is not a baby anymore. With my daughter, I felt the passing of each day and her birthdays appeared to be following the Martian calendar - they felt very far apart. But this guy has blazed through the past two years, I almost feel that I've missed months in between. I'm worried that if I pinch myself and blink twice, I may catch him packing for college. Yikes! 
Happy birthday, little guy! May you continue to have fun breaking apart things - whether that's your take-apart truck or your sister's carefully built Leg…

A change of attire for my blog!

Phew! After plenty of trials, I dressed up my blog in a formal outfit, rather than a casual one. I realized I get tired of colorful layouts faster than the no-frills layouts. So at least for a while, this is it for me. Thanks to my best friend, Piyush for helping me choose! I'm pretty happy with this one, but I *might* change the header image sometime in the future, though I'm not going to focus obsessively on it.

Other than that, I did make a few minor superficial changes (I know I should have participated in the Bloggiesta, but well, better late than never!) I'm glad I got this done, since if I get bugged by something, that something unnecessarily takes rent in my head till I get it done. Also, I've decided to add a WOW factor to the books I read, which I will tag to those books that, well, make me go wow, irrespective of their ratings!

Anyways, what do you think? Does the layout feel clearer and nicer than it was? Or did I confuse you more?

This looks great! I've been struggling with my layout desires lately as well. I really like what you've done here.
I love the new layout! It's simple and easy to navigate, which are things that I love to see when visiting blogs.

I love the look; it is easy on the eyes and doesn't have a lot of distractions. Great job!
I like the clean look! Very crisp. It always feels to good to change things up a bit.
