Today I had a question posed on my contact page (Thanks Pat!) about the pictures I have been using in my headers. I thought the answer should be shared with all of you.
When I was initially designing this blog, I wanted the esthetic to be simple and personal. The images I chose for the header rotations are small samples of beautiful paintings that signify how I hope to always live my life.
Relaxed, near the ocean, full of love, surrounded by my family, and always with a good book nearby.

Perhaps in the future these images will change… but for now, they are perfect.

I love the pics as well. Maybe you could write also write a post about your Blog name, “Escaping Elegance”? I think I get it, but not completely sure.
Beautiful response, the pictures definitely exude the feelings you described
You never really know how it looks through someone else’s eyes unless they tell you. Thanks Pat, for taking the time to tell me!
I’ve never seen ‘The New Novel’. Lovely picture.
Isn’t it though? I spent many a day of my youth doing exactly that… Just not so picturesquely!
