vlog + fun announcement.

Happy Monday! It's a big day here at {long distance loving}...I'm premiering a new blog design and debuting my first vlog. I'm also starting a fun new adventure, but you'll have to watch the vlog to hear more :) Please forgive {cv}'s guitars and the crazy volume of books behind me. Once we get out of our little apartment and into our house, we can spread out a bit {aka {cv} will get a man cave and I'll get a cute little office!}. Until then, this is what you get...




Thanks for watching! I hope my vlog didn't scare you completely!  My days on the east coast have tamed my southern Indiana accent, but there was a y'all in there ;) Vlogs are scary, I'll admit, but it was also kind of fun! I'll do more in the future, so pretty please pass along any questions if you have them.

  11. So many times people do Vlogs and I'm surprised about how their voice sounds/their mannerisms/etc. This didn't happen for me today! Your voice/mannerisms/etc. all seem to "fit" the way you write exactly. You're so cute and I just love love love your new design. I think it's wonderful that you did this all yourself! Wishing you a beautiful week, love. xoxo, e

  14. Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I just stopped by to check yours out and it's really cute. I don't know what the layout looked like before but I like the simplicity of it now. What a small world - I am also named Allison and was born in Rhode Island - now living in the midwest however. Hope you're enjoying the east coast. Anywho, rambling...it is awesome that you are giving back and helping new bloggers - what a great idea!
