Carolina Charm Update!

Notice anything different around here?! Carolina Charm has a new look (thank you, Blog Savvy Creative)! Although we are still working really hard to finalize everything, I am really excited to roll out my new website! My new site is running on a new framework which will improve site speed and my new template will allow me to organize things so much better for you! I have a lot of work cut out for me ahead with my recipes (please bear with me while these pages are under construction), but eventually you will be able to find, sort and filter through my recipes so much easier. Also, if something is missing from my new site that you loved about my old site, please let me know! Or maybe there’s a feature you’ve seen somewhere else that would improve your experience on my site — let me know that too! We are actively improving this little space of mine so all my readers can find what they are looking for! Also, if you haven’t already, you can subscribe by email (at the bottom of my blog) so you never miss a post!

As always, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all SO much for coming back day after day for pumpkin bread, amazon dresses, our weekend recaps and more! I heart you all so much!

Now, let’s have some fun going down memory lane, shall we?! If you’re a longtime reader, leave me a comment letting me know which website you remember from the furthest back! 


Even though I was super intimidated and nervous, I switched from Blogger to WordPress last March! I used Blogger for 7 years and loved it. I was ready to take my blog to the next level with more advanced features, begin really focusing on SEO, and was interested in more plugin options and of course, lots of customization. Although my blog was no longer free to maintain, the migration to wordpress has been great and I am so happy I did it!


This one was of my favorite rebrands that my bestie, Laura, did for me!


In 2013 I purchased my domain name, which was a big deal for me! Carolina Charm wasn’t available but North Carolina Charm was and it was close enough — so I went with it. Laura knocked this design out of the park and I loved it so much that I kept it for four years and only changed it because she had an itch to create a new look for me. Isn’t she the best?


This was the first custom design for Carolina Charm. I remember feeling SO fancy when it was installed. 


If you remember this design, then you are among my longest time readers! This free template is where Carolina Charm started!

2013 is the oldest template I remember. That was a crazy realization that I’ve been following you for 6 years. Holy cow!
