Surprise! It's a new page design and doesn't it look fantastic!! As mentioned in my 700th post, I was going for a new look here at "Are We There Yet?" and this is it. It's more bright, more open, and my "massive sidebar" has been split in two. Hopefully you, my faithful readers, like this new layout as much as I do despite the fact that I am no longer Super Mom but just Ordinary Mom stuck between two teenagers!
First, I want to thank my artistic daughter Amanda for finally, finally, finally doing the artwork for me that appears at the top of the page. It took cajoling, it took begging, it took bribing, and it took a lot of nagging to finally get it done but I think she did a fantastic job. I only wish that I was as skinny as the Mom in the middle on her artwork - even if it meant I had to have feet that big!
Second, I want to send a big shout out and thank you to the man who does my blog designs for me - the incredible Se7en of Blogs Gone Wild! I can't tell you enough what an awesome site designer and incredible human being he is because there just aren't enough words to say it! Se7en did my previous blog design based on some general ideas that I gave him and when I asked him this time if he could redesign and incorporate Amanda's artwork, he said it would be no problem at all.
No matter how many questions I have or if I need help tweaking something that I might have inadvertently screwed up myself, Se7en is right there for me. Even if I had a question about the design he did a year ago, he was always helpful and explained things in a way that my brain-of-little-technological-knowledge could grasp. Se7en doesn't just design your blog and then disappear into the Web - he's there for you and you couldn't ask for a better site designer - ever!
So - what do you think? I'm anxious to hear your thoughts and opinions - and accolades for Se7en! Oh, and if you want to comment on Amanda's artwork, I'm sure she'd like to hear your opinions on that, too!
