I really loved my old banner images…

Middle Daughter made the sign, and the pictures were taken in our yard in Illinois. The gate was propped open and the message was right on target. I wrote about the story behind her sign back in early July 2009.

But since our family has left Illinois for the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, I decided that it was time to try out a new look for my blog. I took this picture a few years ago at Laurelville…

I’ve used it frequently as a desktop image for my computer, and I thought it would be a good one for the blog as our family settles into our new home.

I’ve changed my WordPress theme to “Twenty Eleven“. I’ll play with it for a few weeks and see how it works out.
