welcome to WebmasterWorld, surfnfind!

google will eventually recrawl urls they have indexed on your site, especially if they are linked from elsewhere.
when you make changes to the documents on your site those changes will replace what was previously indexed by google some time after being recrawled.

For these things you mentioned specifically:

META description
usage of keywords (in META, and elsewhere),

if I can make a page better and more accurate by revising those, I do it without any worry about what Google will think of the changes. Google will eventually find the changes, and since they make the page better or more accurate, the result will be beneficial.

What could cause problems is if you change the URLs (file names, web addresses) of pages that have already been indexed.

The best practice is to create a "301 redirect" (usually done in your .htaccess file) telling everyone, including robots, that the old page can now be found at the new address, which should be used from now on.

However, on such a new site, you probably could just rename your pages, let Google find the new ones and discover that the old ones don't exist, and the net negative effect would probably be minimal. For a couple of weeks or more, visitors coming from search engines would be getting 404 Page Not Found errors on your site (the reason the 301 redirects are the better way), but eventually the new pages will get indexed and the old URLs drop out of the index.
