    Love your photos and the edits! Sorry about losing the blog….mine was hacked a few months ago and I lost a lot of it….so I chickened out and switched to blogger b/c I don’t have the time/effort to work so hard on a self-hosted and because I was so sad about it all.

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Abi! I can totally understand! If you ever decide to move back to WordPress, let me know! I’d love to work on a design for you! 🙂

  2. Jessica says:

    I’m sorry you lost it all but at least you were able to republish your posts. Take a deep breath. I did backup my blog yesterday after hearing about all the problems people had.

  3. Laura says:

    I am so sorry about the crash! I can’t imagine all the frustration you must be feeling. Good luck getting everything back the way you want it!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Ugh. Thanks girl! When I actually have a chance, I’ll get everything organized like I want it again. But for now, at least it’s up and running. 🙂

  4. Laura says:

    Oh, my goodness. I can’t imagine. 🙁 I’m sorry, Courtney!

  5. Kimberly says:

    So sorry this happened! I’ll be taking your advice and backing up my blog, for sure!

    As always, great pictures!

  6. Cedar says:

    That would be so sad! I love my comments…it makes me feel so connected.

    I really love the composition of all of these photos with the yellow flowers, the mountain, the flag, the child. All are lovely! The edits are great, too!

    • Courtney K. says:

      I agree. My comments are the reasons I continue to blog. But, at least I have my posts. This has been a scrapbook of sorts for our son and losing all of them would have killed me.

      Thanks so much for your sweet comment!

  7. Sarah says:

    Awesome edits! So sad that it crashed. 🙁

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Sarah! I was kind of devastated the other day, but I’m over it now. Could have been worse, right?

  8. Amy Earle says:

    I need to learn how to back up my blog!! I’d be sick if I lost everything. I have been printing my family blog so I have a hard copy, but I’d lose everything from January till now. My goal for the next week is to learn how to back it up! Thanks for all your hard work… PLUS, I LOVE your edits. Gorgeous!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, my friend! WordPress has some pretty great plugins for backup. Although, I admit that up until now I’ve never even looked at one. I guess that’s bloggy Karma for you, right? So happy you love your site!

  9. Brooke says:

    Oh nooooooooo……. back up my blog? Hmm…. I should probably figure out how exactly to do that……..

    I will though, promise. Anyway, I adore these cute photos. Love the awesome yellow flowers to make the red,white and blue POP! Great stuff!

  10. Stacey says:

    Oh my! I am sooo sorry that happened. It has never occured to me to back up my blog and I have no idea how, guess I need to go figure that out.
    Love those pics but the one of the flag is just awesome!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thank you, Stacey! If you are on WordPress, there are plugins that you can download. If you’re on blogger, you just download a copy of your template and save it to your computer for future backup needs.
