Another new look!

Featured image: Wyoming roadsides always offer photo ops. 

It would have been great to have posted last week, but redesigning this monster started taking up more and more of my time. So instead of making more work for myself and dragging it out, I put a hiatus on posting last week and just pulled out the redesign. And so here you have it: Something that is a little easier to read, displays pictures much better and is slightly better organized.

But my favorite part is the logo at the top designed by one of my best friends, Karli, a.k.a. The Beatkeeper. She is a fantastic designer and agreed to help me with the logo and the Gus Scale graphics you see for trail ratings. To top it all off, she has an amazing blog about music and how it influences and permeates our lives. Plus, every time I read a post, I come out with a new favorite song.

This layout gives me the opportunity to divide content into sections, more like a magazine and less like a blog. There’s “Living Breathless” which chronicles life with an autoimmune disorder and a lung disease, “The Gus Scale” with trail ratings for the busted lung club, “Throwback Thursday” where I get to tell old stories that didn’t make it to the blog before, and “History” where I get to let my nerdy side out to play and check out historical sites around town. And I can’t forget “Vagabond Girls,” which chronicles my adventures with Lacey, one of my other bestest friends and fellow blogger An Ardent Heart.  (She’s just getting started, but I keep pushing her along. She has a lot of great things to say!)

I hope you enjoy the new look and please, if you see anything that looks weird or you just don’t like, let me know. I’ll do my best to accommodate you.

I’m something you don’t see every day: A person under 80 who walks around with oxygen everywhere she goes. I have Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder which, with the help of my stubborn refusal to go to the doctor, caused some pretty deep damage to my lungs. My lack of breath slowed me down for a while, but I'm back to adventuring - just with Gus, my little oxygen tank, in tow. This year's goal is to complete the 52 Hike Challenge and get myself into a healthier state of being. Join me on my quest to become oxygen free!
