Introducting the Up We Go theme

Up We Go theme


Introducing my latest theme release, Up We Go! I’ve been working on a complete rebrand of my business and blog, and I wanted to wait until that was all complete before I posted about this, but I’m just too excited! This theme is by far the best one I’ve released yet. The name is based on the song “Up We Go” by Lights. The lyrics of the song really spoke to me and inspired me. I really pushed myself to make this design cleaner, more functional, and easier to customize than my previous themes.

I’ve been busy with a lot of other things, too, as you can tell. All I’m going to say about it is that sometimes life throws you curveballs.

Thanks so much to every one of my visitors and readers for your continued support. I appreciate it more than you know!

Showcase: Unbreakable theme


My first week of the 12 Week Challenge is complete! I’d like to introduce Unbreakable, my newest blog theme for the Genesis Framework. You can read all about it and purchase it at my Etsy shop.

And the name? Well, I name all of my themes after songs. This one is named after a new song called “Unbreakable” by Mickey Guyton. I don’t consider myself a country music fan, but this song is so inspiring.

It felt so good to get this done, that I decided to also follow my own advice of creating a list of 12 items to complete over my 12 week challenge. No excuses!
