This week, the weather has been up-and-down, typical of Texas in general. Because it’s expected to get really cold in the next few days, there’s some chicken that’s begging to made into homemade stew, but there’s also some leftover canned pumpkin since I bought way too many cans in anticipation for Thanksgiving.

My big web project is finally complete. It went live last week, and after initial panic, I feel elated.
I was working on a redesigned website for a local church — my home church, to be specific. Now, I’m not a super-skilled coder or anything. I took a MOOC on basic HTML & CSS last summer and anything else I know is thanks to the old days of Myspace tinkering. Yet I’d like to think that I know what makes good web content and what looks and feels good. So when I found out my church was looking to do an entire rebrand, I jumped onboard and brought some design-savvy friends with me.
The new Christ Community website.
My goal with this project was not to create something that would win awards. I wanted it to communicate effectively what the church was trying to do, across all devices. I also make it easy for any staff member to update the site without knowing a lick of code.
I wont make a career out of web design, but this was definitely a fulfilling project to undertake.
Of course, after I finished this project, I realized my own site was sorely lacking, hence the new look. For my next project, I’ll be trying to perfect this recipe for cauliflower crust pizza. I did a trial run yesterday, and it’s seriously some tasty stuff.
