Site Refresh

I had some fun today with a site re-design.  I had to dig into PHP more than I ever have before.  I was not only happy with the results, but I learned a ton in the process.  embrace / refrain has always had a clean and minimal look, but it was still feeling a little cluttered to me.  Moving the menu to the right, toning down the font sizes, and making a new logo all combined to create a much cleaner look.  I like what adding just a little color does to the overall effect.

I also added a new archives page.  I have never liked typical WordPress archives, which is why I didn’t have any (at least in the menu, anyway).  What I really wanted was just a listing of posts by date. That way, someone who wants to find a particular post can do so quickly.  This morning, I spent some time looking around other blogs to see how they do archives.  I found a few that I liked, and then set out to make my own.  I still have a few tweaks that I would like to make, but overall I like it and it is very functional.
