We've had a few people complain to us that the blog design we started with, while pretty, was a little hard to read. So I finally got a chance to respond, and install a new theme. I'm a big fan of this design already, so I hope you like it too! While I was at it, I've been updating plugins and making minor tweaks to the sidebar. Gone now is the welcome page -- you're here to read the blog, so that's the first thing you get! The right bar now has the welcome message in a shorter form. I added the photos widget on the right as a quick way to see if there are any photos you haven't seen, and the link above them takes you to the gallery. The gallery is also fits in with the design in a less awkward fashion.
Comments are, of course, welcome. Let us know what you like and don't like about the new theme!
