Andrew & Hana

Andrew + Hana

Amidst the craziness of planning a summer vacation, I managed to squeeze in some time to work on a site for my little brother, Andrew Smith. He recently proposed to Hana Harpold, his girlfriend of four years, and for some reason she actually said yes. Seriously though, I am very proud of them. He certainly has life more figured out than I did at the young age of 22.

He is currenly in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at University of Washington, and is president of his class. She is also attending UW for a doctorate, with plans to be a pediatrician. Considering that I am still in the process of finishing my masters degree, the fact that they skipped from bachelors to doctoral studies makes me more than slightly envious.

Needless to say, with a duo of doctors and a couple of preacher types in the family, my parents couldn't be happier. It will be interesting to see what profession my little sister sets her sights on. She's been class president and school president the past three years of high school, and will be school president again her senior year. I just hope she goes to WSU not UW!

Anyway, about the actual site - It's just a single page, with a PHP include that randomly loads sets of 5 images, out of a possible 20. I figure, this will let me shuffle in wedding photos eventually, as the site changes over time. I'm using Thickbox for the in-page photo pop-ups. This effect was created by Cody using the lightweight jQuery JavaScript library. In my opinion, this is a far better option than Lightbox which is more bloaty code-wise (108k vs 44k). Alrighty, go check out and let me know what you think.
