Have you noticed the construction around the Feels like Home blog, Dear Reader? There’s been plenty.
I have successfully moved my blog from one host to another in preparation for some exciting improvements. Unfortunately, it means that some links will be broken, my address is different, and my buttons are missing. All of this is temporary, though, and should be fixed by Valentine’s Day.
http://Feelslikehomeblog.com will continue to send you to me no matter what, so please don’t change your bookmarks or links or anything crazy, okay?
Trust me, Dear Reader, good things are in store! If you have feedback about any change that I’ve made (or that I’ll make in the future), send me an email or leave a comment. I love to hear from you.
Without further ado, here are this week’s gems! I hope you find something useful!
