Family Time and Changes Galore | Weekly Snapshot

There has been so much going on over here and so much changing soon. I wish I could say I was reading a lot, but it's feeling like a luxury at the moment. 

Family visitLast week, we had my husband's brother and his wife drive down from Boston and stay with us for the week. It had been months since we enjoyed anyone's close companionship for that long so we all enjoyed the time together. We were very sad to say our goodbyes. I hope we can all return to the pre-March era soon. 
While they were here, we celebrated the girl's birthday. (I feel like I have been talking about birthdays on this blog for the past many weeks but we are done for the year!

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?
