Some of you may or may not have noticed the recent change from this logo:
To this logo:
For starters, my lovely friend has been helping me design a new logo. I think it’s pretty awesome. We’re slowly working on changing everything over to the new style and redesigning the site so it’s easier for everyone to navigate. I hope you will all bear with me in the meantime, while we make these necessary changes.
You’ve probably also noticed a change from the “z” in Elizabeth to an “s”. Here’s where the funny story comes into play. Three years ago, when I decided to dive head first into baking, I decided to name my little blog after my late grandmother. She had always been my inspiration in the kitchen and one of my most favorite people in the world. Last May, I gave birth to a darling bundle of joy. The minute I found out I was having a girl there was no doubt in my mind that her middle name would be my grandmother’s name. Then one day (before her arrival) my mother and I were talking and she said “you know it’s with an s right?”. And then it hit me. All this time, I thought my grandmother’s name was with a “z” and had no idea it was actually with an “s”, which is the German version. I was this close to giving my daughter the wrong middle name! Of course, I find it pretty comical, this little twist that I never knew. We always called her “meme”, I had no idea.
After finding out, it was agreed that it was only just to rename my little site and pay true homage to my grandmother’s name.
And there you have it. The true (yet, slightly embarrassing/comical) reason behind the name change 😉
