Nicole Wolf is an inspiration, as an amazing photographer and a Good Samaritan. Last June, she traveled to Haiti and it changed her life, so much so that she decided to take it upon herself to build houses there. Up From Under started as a project to build homes for three Haitian families who lost everything. It has grown to include a goal of building 30 homes in Haiti by 2012.

Login and go to "BlogSite Options->Style Options->Font Sizes". This one is easy. Just check the box and pick a size. Why check the box? Well, allowing everyone to choose font sizes can really change the layout of the site, so we just want make sure you really want to do it. It might take some trial and error, especially as you change fonts. Each font is sized differently  so remember to look at both the font and the size when you make any changes. More? To start we have size choices for the links in the menu, page titles, blog titles, gallery titles, and the titles in the new footer area on the blog pages.
