Well, as you may notice, The Santa Monica Luskey Family Blog has a new background. I awoke to a disturbing notice that my chosen background had 48 hours of life remaining so I had to scramble to find a new blog background that would convey the same vibe as my previous choice. Thoughts?

Now, I know I claimed to be a fan of change, but here's the thing: I only like change on my own terms. I know, I'm so picky. I like to change things when I am the one deciding when and how they will change - not when I have to - see? (Noticing a trend with me and control?)

The timing of this near-blog-background-catastrophe is perfect. I am in Houston preparing to go on our annual Shabby Chic Spa Weekend with the female Alexander decendants; a time that always reminds me of my true priorities - family, love, and baked goods. I say the timing is perfect because it is the weekend of Shabby Chic when I realize an entire year has passed. A time when I check in with myself and note any progress on the personal goals I set the previous year. And the funny thing is, despite how I plan and wish and dream and hope, the one thing I can count on, year after year, is change.
