As previously mentioned on this blog, J’s brother and his wife recently moved from living just 20 blocks away to all the way to the other side of the world…to Shanghai, China.
Ever since I became a mother, I came to value my family more and more, and my BIL and SIL are no exception. My SIL, in particular, has become a tremendous source of comfort and laughter in the past year, and we’ve become quite close.
Needless to say, I was — I am still! — sad to see them leave. 🙁
My SIL had started a new blog a few months before their departure, and was saddened to learn that WordPress.com, where her blog was hosted, was blocked in China. Although she was able to gain access through a VPN, the connection was not too reliable and it was a pain to update her blog.
So I offered to create for her a new, self-hosted WordPress blog with its own domain…
I must admit that it turned out far more adorable than I had first imagined in my head, and I am quite pleased with the result. 🙂 I tried my best to keep my SIL’s cute, friendly, and bubbly personality in mind when coming up with the design, and even the illustration of my BIL and SIL seemed perfect for them, because they’re always taking pictures of themselves!
I kept the design a secret from her until the end, and I was so relieved to hear that she LOVES it.
So hop on over, leave a comment, and tell her Jenny sent ya. Also, don’t forget to subscribe, because she’s sure to post tons of goodies in the future!
