Coming Soon - A New Look

It's official - the blog is getting a makeover!  It will take a few weeks for my name to creep up the waiting list, but I need to use that time to figure out what I want.  That's where you come in.  I know quite a few of you are regular readers that don't tend to leave comments and that's fine, but I'm really in need of the feedback right now.  (Check out The Design Girl's portfolio to see some examples of her work.)

  • Blog style - I'm leaning toward a photo style blog, especially considering we're getting fabulous new family photos taken on Saturday.  But, the graphic style blog also has its appeal.  Believe it or not, I'm not really interested in a scrapbook style blog.  I'll save my scrapbooking for paper!
  • Colors - Blues and Greens?  Earth tones?  Green and Gray might look cool.  Oranges?  What do you see in terms of a color scheme?  It can't be girly considering I'm the only female in this house, but I also still want it to look classy.  I kind of like the look of the green, teal, and gray combination in the photo to the left.  What do you think?
  • Name - This is the big one.  I want to change the name of the blog so that it will still be fitting if we decide to move at some point (which we will).  Here's where I need your help.  The subtitle of the blog will read, "LORD, grant me the patience to deal with my blessings."  Ideas?  I need a title that will go with that without being too "froofy poofy," overly sentimental, or generic.  We're a slightly snarky family, so we need to reflect that in our title.  Hey, what about that....."Slightly Snarky."  Let me chew on that one a bit. 
Please leave a comment or email me with your input.  I can't wait to see what we all come up with!
