But hey, nobody's perfect.  Sometimes I fall short.  Or sometimes I look back on a print from a few years ago and think, man, I could make that better...

We finally did it!  It's a wonderful thing... we have a fully functional blog now (lol), a working Instagram feed, and some other bells & whistles.  Mostly we have a more robust CMS so it's easier to update the site now.  Please drop a line if you encounter any bugs or mistakes! :-)
