New Look

Tell me what you think of the new blog header and slight changes in the color scheme.


In comparison, here are the past two blog headers I've used...

Love it!!!

Mrs. Bee said...

Love it

Shannon said...

I like how you change it as Gwenyth grows.

Jordan said...

I like the emphasis on your family picture, and less on the CF title. The only color scheme difference I notice is your type is blue. Am I missing anything?

Brent Riggs said...

Nate.. the light blue is hard to read on the orange... not enough contrast... If you'll go a little lighter when it's on the orange background, it will stand out better... sorry, that's my professional designer side talking...

Looks good overall...

Love the new look!

Tracy P. said...

I like that everyone is upright now--the positions in each have so well reflected the stage of your lives. And also, that for now the CF has had its prominence diminished, although still very present. Beautiful representation of NOW!

Two Blessings From Above said...

I really like it!
The middle one brings back so many memories of even checking in on your blog while on vacation.
I am so happy for you and your family. The "New Look" is truly a miracle.

Enjoy the summer.

anika said...

:) it's a keeper!

Tammy C said...

Looks great!

The only thing I would change is this: and Gwyneth is on her way out of the NICU and into our hearts.

Boy is she LONG gome from the NICU!

Sometimes I look at the pictures and think is this the same girl from January of 2008.

shelby1232 said...

Nina Diane said...

Andy Lawrenson said...

Joy said...

It looks great :) I love the new picture!!

Rhonda said...

Fresh! Colors are wonderful for summer. Love the new header as it has your family in it too. Shows the changes in your life compared to the previous versions. Love it.

Rebecca said...

That is a neat header! At first I thought the picture was grainy, then I realized it had words on it! Premature birth and cystic fibrosis, right?

Rebecca said...

Oh, and organ donation!

Michelle said...

I love the new picture! It's a little grainy, though. Not as clear as the past ones have been.

Aggiema (Michelle) said...

Sorry, I can't read the words on the picture of the new header! I like the picture and the fact that the focus is now on your family and less on the title but can't read any words across the picture other than the title!

Sparkette said...

Looks great! Love how you put the words on the header picture! That is very unique! :)

Terri said...

I think it looks great!

momnananelson said...

I really like the new picture and header.
It shows in this picture where Gwyneth gets her coloring from.
Everyone is looking healthy and happy. What more can one ask.?

BMom said...

Love it! I enjoy the changes as Gwenyth grows.

Long time reader here, just not a very good poster. :)

momnananelson said...

oh and from my end the colors nad writting are perfectly clear. new header & pic looking refreshed for summer.

Brody's Mom said...

like the new header stuff and love all the pics from your trip!
and thanks a lot for making me cry when watching the father's day video. :)

Jen said...

I love it!

Blessedw5mom said...

LOVE that pic and love that the picture is bigger and the words are smaller.

Debbie said...

Two thumbs up! :o)

Stephanie D. said...

LOVE it! I especially love the soft green and of course, the photo. :)

Just noticed the words...I though at first it was bad pixels then I looked close...very cool! Like the new look!

Heather Nicole said...

yeah, I really like the new look.

asplashofsunshine said...

Looks fabulous, as always. Gwyneth has grown up so much.

Jen said...

Love the new photo! Took me a few to figure out what was going on with the photo. I knew you would never put a photo up that wasn't about perfect :)

Anonymous said...

love it!!!!

Lesley said...

My computer does not pick up the faint words in the header ver well-it just makes the picture look grainy.....

Anonymous said...

LOVE IT! Change is always good....

Renee said...

I love it.... How beautiful... God is so Good.

Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now said...

Love it!

Nikki said...

Love it!

Sheila said...

looks great! I was going to say "but the picture looks grainy" and then I looked closer and saw the "cystic fibrosis" background! Very cool!

auntrene said...

I love the new header.. The picture is wonderful. Great job!!!

Julie said...

I'd make the words a little darker/stronger. Hard to read them and makes the photo look pixelated... Great photo though!!

Laryssa said...

I love the new header! The updated picture was definitely needed!

Jolanda said...

Wow, looks great!! :D

Rick Lawrenson said...

I had to really stare at it to see the background text, it is so faint. I think it says "cystic fibrosis", but can't see it well enough to be sure.

Mama10EE said...

LOVE IT! Great family picture.

Bev J. said...

I really love it!! What a great photo of the 3 of you!!

Emily said...

I love it...the faint watermark thin you have going on is cool. And I think it's nice when people keep their headers updated.

Sarah said...

I love it!!

I was just thinking the other day that G was too tiny in your old header - she's so big now!!

Sammy's Mommy said...

LOVE IT!!

Roberta said...

I like the new header! Wonderful picture

Anonymous said...

Love, love, love the picture... however, from a purely functional standpoint, when I open the page to read a new post, its almost instantly necessary to scroll, as the picture takes up most of what would be the first 'page'... (maybe that's just my personal pet peeve... who knows...)

I spend have spent a lot of time lately working on the functionality of a website for a charitable organization that I am involved with, and maybe I'm just too picky at this point... but you asked... :)

I like the new one...shows the progression of your family life!

The Beaver Bunch said...

What a great picture!

Love the new pic & colors.

Emily Rose said...

I like it, though the blue text might make it harder to read longer paragraphs.

Laura said...

Beautiful family!

barb sherer said...

i love the image but i think you should erase the texture from the skin - it detracts from the girls especially!

Kristan said...

i like the new color scheme, love the picture, but would prefer it not be grainy. in case you wanted constructive criticism amongst your praise! :)

Mrs. Dan said...

Go for it!!!!! :)

Amy said...

I got tears in my eyes when I saw it. I think it's perfect!

Kristen said...

I can't read the background text; it just looks blurry to me.

Deege said...

I love the new header. It's a perfect picture of a wonderful family.

Anonymous said...

I like the new picture - it's great! But, it just looks grainy on my computer. Then I read other comments and saw that it's supposed to be words... they aren't showing up well at all for me though.

Not sure about the blue on the orange, but probably a personal preference :)

MammaMia said...

Looks great! I like the big family picture. And not that my opinion matters, but I like Tricia with short hair.

Carol said...

Love the new look

Jamie said...

Love the new look! Also love the shadowed cystic fibrosis across the picture, clever!!!

Kristan said...

okay, i noticed the text in the background of the header does not = grainyness. I still would prefer it not look grainy. :)

Mom of 3 said...

Looks great!

Momof2bz said...

I love it! Gwyneth is growing so fast :) As always, Tricia looks beautiful and you look handsome.

barb sherer said...

ok after looking at the comments i went back and looked and after i picked up my laptop and tilted it around i could see that it was words. from a photographer point of view i would pull back show a tad more background emphasize the words there on the black and and maybe even the clothes and erase it from the faces - tricia particularly. adorable picture though.

BeckyG. said...

Love the new picture! You do such a great job capturing special moments!

Paul and Christy said...

The Mazza Munchkins said...

Great new header, and such a testamony to what God can do. I must say though, my faviorte picture EVER of Tricia is the one with her and the flower.

Jen said...

It's great!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm posting anon. because I want to be honest without looking bad since everyone likes it.

At first glance it definitely looks grainy. You have to click on it to see the words. My first thought was that it was taken with your mac photo booth....
I like the title bigger also.

I love your blog though, and will keep reading regardless of the header. :)

Anonymous said...

oh yeah, don't like the blue either, forgot to mention that.

generally, over all, you are talented..... just not diggin this one

Julie said...

LOVE it! Looks great!!

Me and my Gurl said...

Your headers are all great. They show a BEAUTIFUL progression in your family life. I like that. Gwyneth is getting so big. (I know she's still small) but compared to her at birth she is more beautiful than ever.

Tricia is gorgeous. Hopefully she is doing well.

Nate you always look so nice and happy what can I say. You guys make a Wonderful Family Photo.

Enjoy

Sandra Glewwe said...

Love the new look!

Janice and Jessica said...

Love it!!! Can't believe I've been reading your blog since you had the first header. We need tips as to how to change those headers.

Katey said...

I really like the new header!! Great job!

"M" said...

It looks really nice!

Anonymous said...

I love the picture but why is it so low resolution/quality? The others are all fine but this one looks like it has lines across it in a sort of mesh or something. It needs to be clearer I think. Looks good though!

I like it very much

nettech said...

I love it. Smaller title is much better

Cheryl said...

LOVE the new topper!!!!! Precious picture of a precious family.

Anonymous said...

I LOVE the new banner. What a wonderful family you have.

Carolyn said...

I like the new header with the cute family picture. Change is always good every now and then. I also like how it says organ donation and cystic fibrosis all over it. Sneaky but cool!

-Carolyn

Mary Anne Whiteley said...

The picture is really great, but I kind of liked the old style better, that you used with the two prior headers. I wonder if there is a way to combine that with the brown banner?

bobbie said...

LOVE the new header!!!

Emily said...

I love the new look- Tricia's smile is so great!
:)
