I love this.
Whenever I feel down, prancing to the tunes of Miss Dolly Parton never fails to lift my spirits.
I don't really have much to report this week.
I have decluttered my blog. My sidebars to be precise. My blog is nearly a year old (January 29th 2010 was when it all began) and it has been the similar style throughout the last 12 months. Obviously tweaks have occurred, I fashioned my header, and fonts were added, changed, removed and subsequently reapplied. I have learnt that less is more in my eyes when it comes to my blog, and I am striving for a cleaner, simpler, more easily navigable space. Yet also I am in the mind set of, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" so won't veer too far away from the style you are accustomed to.
I plan to hold a blog birthday bonanza giveaway to celebrate a year in blogger-sphere and to say thank you to each one of you for following pearls & poodles. Terrific things have happened to my blog and I since I began this venture. I want to recap on my year blogging and recount all the fabulous opportunities I have had, and the lovely people I have met, whilst travelling along my blogging path.
I mentioned in an early Motto Monday post that I have started Zumba classes. I have been doing it for 6 weeks now and cannot express how much I look forward to it on a weekly basis. I was reading Victoria's post earlier today, detailing her plans to give Zumba a whirl, and to her and anyone considering it, all I can say is go for it. I know classes will vary, but I have been fortunate enough to find a brilliant instructor who delivers an awesome workout. I do a lot of running and play hockey, so it is nice to inject a choreographed variation into my fitness regime. Anyone wishing to embark on a New Year's exercise routine, then Zumba could be the answer.
