Hello there!

If this is your first visit here, please go to my blog's new home, here. You will find more updated posts and if you are lucky, I might just be running a giveaway :-)

If you have been here before, welcome back! I have moved to self-hosted Wordpress, so now you can find me by just typing www.theunlikelyhousewife.com in your browser. I hope to see you there!

XO, Elisa

P.S. This blog's comment are now closed. One more reason to visit me on WP ;-)

Changes: the good, the bad, the lovely

The good:
Diary of an Unlikely Housewife is moving!! I have decided to go self-hosted WordPress, and with that, of course, goes a brand new domain name (yay!!) - soon you'll just have to type www.theunlikelyhousewife.com to get to see the fab purple heels on my header ;-)

The bad:
My "followers" widget will be installed on the WP blog too, but it'll go back to zero :-( Hopefully you'll decide to add me again (pretty please).

I hope that's all the bad will be, and I won't have to go through what Jill just went through to fatten her RSS feed subscriptions back up! 'Cause I don't have any diamonds to give away :-)

I will have of course to adjust all my links, but that won't be a bother to you, I promise.

The lovely:
Diary of an Unlikely Housewife is turning 1! April 15th marks the 1-year anniversary of my first blog post, and I'll be celebrating with multiple giveaways! At the new place, of course :-)

As part of the celebration, a few of my favorite bloggers will be guest posting – the more the merrier, right?

Stay tuned for announcements, as soon as next week!

Also, if I may share something non-blog related with you, we finally found a lovely apartment in Zurich, for after the move! It's perfect, with a playground outside, space for Sarah to ride her bike, a short train ride (15 minutes) to the center of Zurich but not in the middle of everything. And it's very close to the apartment we had before the move, which hopefully will help the girls re-adjust quickly.
Knowing we'll have a nice place makes the idea of moving away from NY a bit more pleasant, so while this may sound mundane, it's a big deal to us! (or rather, to me, since my husband would happily move to the Swiss countryside – my mountain boy!)

Congrats on your move! I recently moved from Blogger to Typepad and have been really pleased.
That's great about the apartment, too!!

Congrats on the move!

I haven't yet moved to my own domain. I still feel too much like a blogging virgin. Maybe in the next year...

I'll be following you!

congrats on the move!! and congrats on finding a flat! That's brilliant! Must make you feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders when you know exactly where you will set up your lovely new home. I know it's sad moving, but in many ways, it's so exciting!
