Did it really take a year to launch--YES!
I have kids...and when you get pregnant, you expect 9-10 months of chaos and pain to get those adorable, squirmy bundles of joy...but when you build a new website...ummm... Well, even though I have been (personally) building our web sites since the late 90's...I still stupidly think I can tell someone: "It needs to do THIS!" and it will magically happen. As you can well imagine, that is NOT what happens. It is bad enough when you don't know what you want and you have to figure it out--that happens a lot with advertisements and Facebook posts too--but sometimes you know EXACTLY what you want and it feels like the fates are conspiring against you so it cannot happen the way you want.
Well we have had a little of both for the last year--and as a result it has taken what feels like FOREVER to get the new site launched. So have a look around and let us know what you think. And the picture was taken over 10 years ago when my oldest daughter, Bella, was helping to stack boxes that were going overseas...she was worth it and I am sure the website will be too!
