welcome


It's finally here! The new look is up. Nathan and I are both giving a big sigh of relief. This was our first venture in coding and I have to say it was a bit of a struggle. The last 3 weekends were spent watching videos, reading tutorials, and experimenting with different layouts. We still have a few items we are working on, but for the most part we are all smiles when we see our new page pop up on the screen.

In other news, this weekend we invested in our first camera. We've got a lot of learning to do, but we are so excited to post images that are taken with something nicer than our iphones. Whoop things are lookin up :-)

  11. Well congrats to your new look as well! It is definitely a long process and it's hard to keep up with the blog while making a new one at the same time (definitely a two person job).

    It looks fantastic guys !! I love the simplicity and the colour palette is gorgeous :) The coding is definitely a struggle, I think I took about 3-4 weeks for mine and that was my first venture into it as well, was very frustrating at times for sure ! I look forward to seeing your lovely photos, I've had mine for about a year now and I'm always learning new things :) x

  18. It looks AMAZING!!! So clean and fresh. You have done an amazing job, I can't believe you did it all by yourself. Coding has always been so intimidating, I'm not sure if I'm going to try it ;).
