We had to take down all our posts for a while. We did not realize that to put them back up would repost them in everyone's feeds. We apologize for that. We also will do our best, as life allows, to get the rest of the posts up as soon as possible. :)

New Blog Name

So before I tell you about the great things about my blog now, I wanted to tell you what a horrible wife I am!  My husband has had a scratch down the back of his tricep for several days now.  I asked how he got it two days ago, but he shrugged me off, so I assumed that meant he didn't know how he got it, and it was probably one of the cats crawling over him while he was sleeping.

WELLLLL.... it happened while he was sleeping alright!  And it was me who did it!  He told me so last night.  I told him I didn't see how I could have, but he was adamant that it was me.  He didn't want me to feel bad, but I was laughing so hard not believing him, that he started to push to show he was right.  I still don't know how I could have done it, but I have started debating on cutting my nails now.  I used to bite them, and less than ten years ago, stopped.  But it wasn't until the past couple of years that I've actually been able to grow them, and I love how long they are.  Not freakishly long, but probably 1/4 of an inch.  Now to see if I decide to clip them off. :( :(  No, there won't be any tears, but I will be a bit sad.  I don't want to hurt Hubby.  The scratch is a good four inches long, if not longer, and it could be worse next time.

So... now about the changes in my blog.  I am starting to feel that my blog is starting to reflect who I am, bit by bit, the look of it is more of who I am.

I spent today working on my Profile Photo.  The heart with the DD in it was only supposed to be temporary until I could find a photo with a woman kneeling before a man.  But the more I looked, the more I couldn't find what I had in mind.  So I decided today to try a silhouette like Jack and Jill use for theirs.  I played around with it until I liked it, but still, it seemed empty, and after a while, decided to put our cats in for a little extra.  LOL  It just did not look right without.  I promise, I love my cats, but am not obsessed.  LOL  And then I added the DD at the top right of the heart.  (I have since removed the cats and put in hearts)

The reason I wanted a woman kneeling before a man is because I felt it would help show my submissive dream.  The want to kneel before my husband and let him be in control, trusting him with my vulnerability.  To me, for a Profile Photo, a woman kneeling before a man was the best way to show my want for a submissive state of mind.  I fudged a bit, she's skinnier than me... with bigger boobs! ;)  But in all honesty, I was just aiming to draw a man and a woman, not necessarily my Hubby and I. :)

Also, the tagline I have on my Title Bar now is something I love.  I looked up shotgun to see how it was spelt, one word, or two.  And in looking it up, I learned that to ride shotgun is a term from times of war.  One person would drive the vehicle, the other would have their back by having a gun at the ready to shoot anyone that came at them.  I would like to think that not only have I given my husband the wheel in our relationship, I would like to think that I have his back as well.  It seemed to further solidify my desire to have "Riding Shotgun So Hubby Can Take The Wheel" as my tagline.  It just made it even more perfect.

The title bar I had before I had designed myself, and then played around with it today to make it right for my new blog name.  I drew everything except the words, which I just used fonts for in Paint Shop Pro.  But if anything looks not quite right in it, feel free to let me know so I can fix it.  :)  I almost didn't keep the butterflies, but then I wanted the background to still match, so I put them on the title words... hopefully that looks okay. :)  I didn't want to have to redesign my background yet. :)  It took a lot of work to make it, and am not ready to tackle a new background as well yet. :)

So for those of you that have me on your blogrolls, I believe it will stay as "My Journey Into DD" unless you change it, but anyone knew adding me to a blogroll will see me as "Submitting To Be Led".  If you didn't read my post a few weeks ago, this name change is because there is a blog called "My Journey In DD" and I felt kind of bad that I didn't realize how close I'd made my blog name to another's when I started.  They never mentioned the similarities, but I still felt bad.  And this new title seems to fit me more now. :)

Have a good night all.

    1. Hey Tricia. :) My heart stopped for a minute when I saw the words "think I'll unfollow you", and was so worried that in changing my name, a worry I've already had, that I would lose readers. But you quickly eased my worries with your next workds of "and follow you again." Whew. ;) Thank you for continuing to read along. :)

    1. Oh, no worries. :) I only put it'd still show up as the same so that you knew not to look for the new name if you already had me on your blogrolls. :) I'm glad you like the new name, I'm getting used to it, but love it also. :)

  3. Hi Esmay,
    Love your new name and the profile pic. Now I'm just trying to figure out, how to get your new blog name to come up. How do you un follow to follow again?

    Oh well I'll figure it out some how :)

    1. Thank you, still might play around with the profile pic, but it won't change much from what it is now if I do. So I went and played around with the followers gadget. First of all, you have to make sure it doesn't say "sign in" on the followers gadget. Then just click "options" beside your name. Then click "site settings". Then a box will pop up, click "stop following this site" on the far right. :) Just remember to follow me again afterwards. ;) I'd hate to lose you. :)

  4. Hahaaa! When I was first reading your post, and you were talking about scratching your husband ( IMHO he needs a name btw) and your nails, I first read it as you used to bite him, but stopped 10 years ago or so! LOL

    Nice job on the edits. Like I said, I'd suggest naming your husband...MJ too, because it gives them some sort of personality for us. Someone to refer to. But that is just me :).

    I know this is the start of your work week, so I won't say have a good weekend. Hope work flies by for you!

    1. Thank you so much Grace, I am glad you like it all. :) I worked really hard to make it look nice, and to be an extension of me. Definitely knowing the meaning of the saying made it more special to me too. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Hez. :) I am glad that you like it, I had hoped people would. :) I feel kind of selfish saying that... but I'll be honest.

Please feel free to leave any comments, but I do ask you to be kind. We go into this with eyes wide open after months of prayer, and a peace in our hearts that this is the right choice before God for our marriage. I am open to questions from those who wonder why we made this choice, but I would ask for no personal attacks. Thank you. :)
