The road ends, but the journey continues...

Grand Re-Opening

Hey guys, I’m back!

Thank you for your patience while I revised, updated and transferred to another hosting site this space on the internet known as Laura Bruno Lilly – The Journey Continues.

That said, please ‘click around’ the site to view the many changes – not the least of which is a re-design from my former 2012 Child Theme to the more modern Hemingway Theme.

On the menu bar above – or just on the following titles here – be sure to click on the Home, About, and Purple Tulip Music tabs to view exciting new content.

Yep, had to use the word ‘exciting’ because this is after all a ‘Grand Re-Opening’!

And, hey, how about that header? Familiar, yet refreshed with the artwork by my Great Uncle Tran. Whose piece, Colorado, inspired the entire color palette of this site.  And whose piece, Colorado, has a whole ‘nother story behind it which I will fully disclose in future blog posts on this newly revised site.

Also, to be revealed in the coming weeks, is a new page waiting to be nestled between the PTM and DMW tabs on the menu bar. It will be published with an accompanying blog post telling its backstory, so stayed tuned folks.

In the meantime: It’s great to be back!

    Love the makeover. And looking forward to everything ‘late 2020’ may bring.

    It looks really good, Laura. I’ve been considering a change to my blog lately, so you’re an inspiration for me at the moment. Well done! – Marty

      Thanks…but if an inspiration, don’t blame me when things don’t go as planned! HA!

    This is a lovely new blog format. It’s easy on the eyes plus easy to navigate. I like your line in your About page: “funky vibes and laughter, I wish you peace.” That is a wonderful summation of who you are + a good goal in life. Well said.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thank you kindly, Ms. Bean. Throwing some funky vibes your way!

      • Ally Bean

        Much appreciated. Happy Hump Day!

  6. zippyquilts

    Very nice! I love the various dimensions of the blog accessible from the home page. Good job!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Zippy! Now to zip through some other projects as I’m staying inside more…hot out and those masks are mini sweat boxes to wear outside…but are also mighty protectors!

    They’ll be a change in the weather and a change in the sea. From now on, they’ll be a change in me. Oh yeah. You rock.

    • laura bruno lilly

      I can just hear you belting it out, Joe. From AZ to SC, your voice carries a lot of weight. 🙂
      You rock, too, bud.

  8. Laura

    Welcome back Laura! I love the new look! Your Uncle’s art work is the very first thing that caught my eye! And now, I shall go exploring until this thunderstorm kicks me off! 🙂

    • laura bruno lilly

      HA! We’ve got the soft but dense continuous downpour going on here…so far no thunder or lightening…thrilled that you’ve gone exploring, Laura.

  9. Jill Weatherholt

    It looks great, Laura! Congratulations!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Jill, remember when? I did so much appreciate your reference that time so long ago! And now, here I dun it m’self!
      Keep on writing – these times are ripe for your stories.
      peace

      • Jill Weatherholt

        Yes, I do remember! Hey, doing it yourself is great. You’ve got more patience than I do, Laura. 🙂 Thank you for your encouraging words.

        • laura bruno lilly

          Thanks for the kudos, Jill. Now to rest on my laurels…ahem…NOT!

    Woot woot! Nice job – it looks very professional and welcoming. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • laura bruno lilly

      Whoa- professional – thanks, Roseanne

  11. Janis @ RetirementallyChallenged.com

    It looks great… and, yes, exciting 🙂 Good to have you back!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Finally got the darn thing done and done! I remember when you re-did your site and I was like, “Oh, it’s so gooooood!”
      It’s time consuming but worth it, ya know?

      • Janis @ RetirementallyChallenged.com

        Yep! The only thing I’d say I miss is the little “Your comment is awaiting moderation” (or something like that) I used to see after making a comment. Now my comment just disappears and I didn’t know if it “took” until I saw that you responded. Other than that, your new layout looks wonderful and easily navigated.

        • laura bruno lilly

          Well, that’s not a good thing…will look into it for sure. Hopefully it can be easily resolved. Thanks for letting me know.

  12. marissthequilter

    And it’s great to hear your voice on your brand new, grand site. Love your purple tulip logo and your tagline. I am saving the delights of exploring your site properly until the.morning and on my computer. Meantime warm greetings and congratulations

    • laura bruno lilly

      Mariss! Thanks for the congrats. I hope you have a great night’s sleep – see you in the morning!

  13. Lavinia Ross

    Looks good, Laura!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Lavinia, thanks for taking a peak around. Now for some music making, eh?
      😉

    • Mary

      Wow very professional looking!! Great job!!

      • laura bruno lilly

        Hey Marybeth! Thanks for chiming in and adding to the celebratory feel of ‘launch day’!
        Love to the Family

  14. L. Marie

    Yay! So glad that’s over for you! Welcome back, Laura! Looks great!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Soooo- I’m replying via my wp dashboard instead of in reply to my comments on the wp reader – hence Cindy’s comment showed sooner as I replied via wp reader! Always something new for me to learn and I wouldn’t have known this factoid had you not emailed me!!!!
      Thanks, L.Marie, for taking a break from your hectic packing to sneak over here.

  15. Puzzles of the Soul

    Congratulations Laura and remember the story about the Tulips. Looks really good can see you have put a great deal of thought and effort into your new creation.

  16. Jane's Heartsong

    I love the new layout and enjoying clicking on the tabs that opened up the different sections of your site. It was good to get re-introduced to you via your love of coffee, music and writing. And the journey goes on…I look forward to it.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thank you Jane for taking the time to ‘click around’ my revised site! Glad to be back!
