New news…New site!

It has been a year coming, but Becky and I are very pleased with our new and improved website – we hope you will be too! We spent a lot time and thought into how the new site should look. We paid special attention to the overall user experience of every visit to the website, and we hope you enjoy it. We’re still working on some added features, and will keep you updated here on our blog as we roll out new features! Our improved mobile experience should also look just as beautiful on your mobile devices as it does on your laptop or computer.
