Love the clean, modern look that reminds us of Martha Stewart Living but with more spunk. Gorgeous selection of photos, uncluttered autumn background of yellow, red and white, and good font selection.
User Friendliness – 9
Easy download time, since the photos are kept to a manageable size, and the very organized format makes navigation intuitive even for first time users. Archives and Links to other pages lead you to the specific entries you’re looking for.

She’s a professional writer, which is always a plus. Excellent writing voice, and a very modern voice that balances an appealing vulnerability with a “what the heck, let’s have fun anyway!” joie de vivre.

Very very fun read. Some entries will make you laugh, others will make you think, and most will make you nod vigorously in front of your computer screen as you shriek- “Oh My God, she so gets me!“
