redesigning my web site

Wow! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. My son Decklin who turned 33 this year, originally created my website when he was just 14 years old, yes - I said 14! The site did go through a few updates during those 19 years and I even changed domains  in 2004 from to Since that time I've been updating the site myself, but could not deal with the old front page platform it was based on any more. The updates were difficult to do and the site content itself was very outdated. 

So here we are, with a brand new squarespace website I'm excited about. I think it will help me to stay updated a lot more easily and feel proud of what I see on my site. I hope you enjoy it! I know I will! : 0) lenna
