There’s something about this time of year that always makes me wistful for the good old days—the simpler times, if you will—when all that mattered were family, friends, and a whole lotta blogging about everything under the sun. I miss those days, don’t you?
Fear not, my fellow blogging friends. We’ve got you all covered today with a theme that will make you want to stop time and write about everything in your lives until you can’t write anymore.
A Simpler Time, designed by Denise Chandler, is a theme that’s beautiful, bold, and memorable—pretty much exactly like the types of stories you’ll be writing alongside it on your WordPress.com blog:
It’s a traditional blog theme in the sense that it offers everything you’ve come to expect from a WordPress theme—widgets, custom menus, and custom headers, and more—and it also looks incredible. If you’d also like to mix it up with different colors and fonts, try the Custom Design upgrade. You can do all of that and more.
A Simpler Time is a premium upgrade for your blog; read more about its features on the Theme Showcase or dive right into previewing it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

This is a beautiful theme.
You know what? The first time I saw this theme I felt like, you know, home. :) Nice job, indeed. :)
It’s simple and sweet. It would be nice if it were also available for self-hosted blogs. :)
I love it, but I think it would be even greater if it were red. :D
I saw this early this morning, and although i only just brought the Just Desserts Theme i had to have this one. i just love the fonts and the Ribbon Labels on the sidebar. As a new wordpress blogger this has made my new blog all that i wanted it to be.
What a gorgeous idea. It’s like fresh wall gardening.
This looks so nice, green, and eco-friendly! :) I love the widget titles’ banner-like design.
Darn, WordPress.com. Why do you care about your clients so much? I think I’m…in love with you guys. Marry me? :)
It’s cute, clean, and true eye candy! Nice!!!
It’s purely amazing. <3
Very pretty for a personal blog.
A Simpler Time-great name for this beautiful theme.
It’s a beautiful theme. I like it!
Sorry, but this template is everything BUT simple. In fact, it’s packed.
I like this very much. :-)
FINALLY! You finally read my mind! Oh, thanks!
It’s really a good theme.
Beautiful and unique.
I think it will be very good for diary blogs, its very beautiful.
Relaxing theme-I will follow your blog and hope you will check mine out as well.
It’s fascinating..!! Keep up the good work, WordPress..!! :)
Great theme! I love how often WordPress introduces lots of great themes. :)
kool! really does take me back to the old days when family would get together and have cook outs in the back yard. Would not say the days were simpler just that when your a kid the parents have the burden then.
This is great! Keep ‘em coming!
I think that the space for the header is a kind of too big. What do you think?
Great theme, I will definitely keep this one in mind for a future update!
Not quite fond of green but that’s beautiful!
Like another poster pointed out I, too, think the post header font size is to big. Half the size would look much better. I’d change it myself but can’t see paying $30/yr to purchase the CSS package for one minor change. I bought the theme and love it except this one minor detail
Too bad that one wasn’t there when I started my blog! My blogs title is “Our Simpler Times”! Its named after the beer from Trader Joe’s though ;)
I love the color.
Great to see such a well designed theme, because so many WordPress themes look exactly the same. You raised the bar!
It looks a little “seasonal” to me, unless there’s an option to change colors. I want to see all the options before I use it.
