Blogging in Style

While setting up my blog, I was looking through the available templates and didn't find anything that really caught my fancy. So I decided to try my hand at designing a custom background. I used a photo I liked with a leaf (because leaves are... our friends) and blended it with some scratched texture, added a gradient, and KAZAM! ... a new background was born. My question, is it too distracting?

Lydia and I were talking a little bit about journal keeping lately. We were both very diligent journal keepers on our missions, but have since lingered. I have a hard time getting out my journal, finding a pen, and jotting down my thoughts (especially because it's usually very late when the thought of journal keeping occurs to me). I'm always on the computer though, so even though this isn't on paper, I thought it would be a good place to start... and Mr. T seems to agree.
