A New Look for A Cornered Gurl

And of me, too.

I have been wanting to change things up a bit here at A Cornered Gurl, however, the new themes and layouts for WordPress aren’t really my jam. So, I have decided to stick with the theme I have which is, Radiate, and create a new logo/header image, instead.

I must admit, I like this one a lot more than my previous logo/header image. It speaks to me on a higher level and I actually see more of myself in it, too. Also, notice how the woman is placed in the corner, hmm. Yes, totally deliberate.

I also have this same theme running of sorts for the A Cornered Gurl publication via Medium.

You’ll also notice I’ve changed my profile picture as well as the site icon. The new profile picture gives you a glimpse of the first weekend I had my microlocs installed. It’s simple, sleek, colorful, and makes me smile every time I see it.

And the site icon image is the photo I had for my profile previously. I rather adore this photo, so I thought to use it as the icon people will see upon searching for my site. It p o p s and shows my signature smile and oversized blue light specs.

And there you have it, folks! Three simple changes that give ACG a new look and feel. Visit the site directly so you can place your eyes on the changes yourself. As always, thanks for coming along with me on this journey, and I appreciate your presence!

First Day of 2023

The Little Monster had me up and rushing to slip on clothes at 06:34AM. Someone has a tummy ache that led to the runs, which led me to run down 3 flights of stairs to get her outside in time.

As soon as we get back inside and I clean myself up and her, too, she gets in my bed and turns her attention to the TV.

I turned it on for her, and that’s the start of the first day of the new year for us!

And here I was simply thinking I’d sleep in. I guess not! Lol.

Jernee and her bowels had other plans!

these precious children
push joy deep into my soul
sweet saving graces

We enjoyed ourselves at my cousins’ house earlier today. This evening has proven to be such a great evening, considering I was without power for nearly 8 hours, but blessed to have spent most of my day enjoying it with family.

I am taking a short break away from blogging and reading to simply experience every precious moment that I can during this holiday.

I will return this coming Tuesday morning, December 27, 2022.

Happy Holidays, beautiful people. Enjoy Christmas as much as you can, if you celebrate it. Remember, you can be kind first; always be kind, first.
