One of these mornings/You're going to rise up singing

Summer is in full swing, and I am still a good for nothing non-blogger. Although as you can see I have taken the time to redesign the site, and despite Jessica’s cynicism it is complete BEFORE our wedding day! The redesign has been a very long time coming. It started with a vision approximately 3 months ago. I spent a questionable amount of time trying to locate an image that would fit my idea, but after many hours with my dear friends Google Images and Stock.xchng I gave up. It didn’t help that we were just getting into the roughest part of last semester’s course work.

The second design idea came down to what’s best described as a Seuss-esque design with a tree that resembled Pinocchio after a particularly rough lieing streak.  It came together quite nicely, and was almost done when I came to the realization that I couldn’t design a navigation system that looked good with it.

So I scrapped it.

I thought of this current design as I stood up from the couch and walked to the restroom. It was a genuine eureka moment. Alas here we are after a few modifications from the original design. On the front page you can note a XXX, that is where a countdown is going to live shortly. Except not one of those gaudy MySpace countdowns, one that just looks like text, but is still dynamic. I hope you all enjoy it, and many thanks go to Nathan over at Room122 for his help in the final polishing up.

To round out this post I want to express my excitement about Nicole being home. She spent most of June out of Texas, and about 10 days of it out of the country. While I know she enjoyed getting away, and had a great time. I’m very glad to have her back home.

Last thing, promise, I chose new ties for the groomsmen and myself with Nicole. The originals just weren’t working for us anymore. You can see them on Nicole’s blog from today, she even included links to the maker!

Kudos if you can tell me what song this blog title is from.
