Welcome to the New Short and Sweet!

6/12/2013


Oh hello! It's here! We needed a breath of fresh air. We both have several big changes happening in our lives over the course of the next few months, and the blog seemed to stare at us begging for change too.

Let's be real. Life is chaotic when you work 10+ hour days and have to commute from San Diego to L.A. several times a week and plan your wedding. Life is chaotic when you have a toddler, another one due in a month and are trying to balance work and home life all at the same time. We needed a dose of simplicity, of classic cool; something that when we open our laptops in the morning evokes a sense of serene beauty. We found it.

A very special thanks to Danielle Moss of Breakfast at Toast and The Everygirl for our new logo and social media buttons and Ana Degenaar of Blog Milk who helped with our template, layout and coding. We couldn't have done it without them, and wholeheartedly appreciate their patience as we worked through designs and revisions until we found the perfect match.

We hope you'll stick around and explore our new space and if you're new here, welcome!
