notice anything different around here?
i gave this space a bit of a makeover.
simplified. brightened things up. and changed my name.
the name change has been something i've been pondering for a long time now.
when i first started blogging, i picked "em=me" as a play on words based off a nickname i had in college. i had no idea that blogging would be something i would really get into, or that i'd still be doing it nearly 3 years later.
OR that i would feel like my blog name was so narcissistic.
more than narcissism though, em=me just didn't seem to say anything about me or what i blog about...except that my name is Em.
enter the doctors fleming. again, it's based off a nickname. something our friends occasionally call us when they're feeling fancy. but i feel like it does a better job of describing what i actually blog about: being a doctor, and being married to one.
so there it is. the why behind the what. i'm still working on the design elements. doing a lot of googling on html code, and enlisting the help of some incredibly talented friends. like Heather, from Paper Please, who designed my header that i.am.obsessed.with. (seriously check out her Etsy shop. you may see someone familiar...) and my social media buttons.
you guys have no idea how long i have coveted social media buttons. too long.
i may be a good doctor (emphasis on the "may"), but blog/site design is not my forte and i feel like a genuine idiot 99% of the time trying to fumble my way through it. so if you're clicking around and something doesn't work, don't be shy. point it out. let me know.
i'll try to google how to fix it.
and now, a snapshot from our weekend:
sums us up pretty well, i think. dark, smoky honkytonk bar. blurry image with a finger over the lens. grinning like fools.
the doctors fleming, everyone.
