This Is My Story.

Honestly, the name Texas Lovebirds has never really felt like me. But, after quite a bit of time blogging under it, it kind of stuck. So, I didn't change it, and I honestly had no idea of what I'd change it to. 

A little back story on me...I grew up attending a Church of Christ where we always sang acapella, and we more often than not sang old hymns. I have lots of favorites -- How Great Thou Art, It Is Well With My Soul, The Old Rugged Cross -- but I've always, always loved Blessed Assurance... 


// Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood. //

// This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long. // 


A few weeks ago, while humming this song to myself, I had an idea. It just kind of hit me, like most good ideas do...quickly and randomly. A new blog name. This Is My Story.

Quite literally, this blog is just that...my story...and I want to share it. But even more so..the goal, the point, the hope of my life is to live this journey praising my Savior all the way through it. 

So, the new blog name This Is My Story. was born. I am absolutely in love with the new name and the meaning behind it. This week, you'll see some changes made of the design here but it won't be anything too drastic. In regards to the content, there will be no change...same ole' me.

But, because I just can't keep a secret, here's a small peek at the design change...


 
 
 
 
I just love it! I worked with Bobbi again for this design, and as always, she has been such a joy to partner with. As you can see, there will be a change in domain (moving from texaslovebirds.com to carlyskinner.com) BUT I'll make sure everything redirects smoothly so you shouldn't have any issues.

Just a few things of note in regards to social media changes...
+ My Twitter handle has changed from @texaslovebirds to @carlyLskinner
+ My Instagram name has changed from @texaslovebirds to @carlyLskinner
+ And you can go like my new Facebook page, here

I hope you love the changes just as much as I do and I hope you'll continue coming back to this space of mine. It wouldn't be the same without you. xo
