Welcome to the New Boxwood!
I am so very excited to welcome you to our new Boxwood Avenue site that was built just for you! Every element of the website was designed to help you find posts easier and enjoy the content on our blog!
While I loved our old website, it was time for a renovation! We hired Meg Summerfield to help us with the re-design, and I must say, she was absolutely the best person for the job! Meg is a New Englander with fabulous taste (just look at Abby Capalbo’s site designed by Meg), she also runs the Squarespace Design Guild.
Meg knows every trick in the book when it comes to making a Squarespace website look like, well, not a Squarespace website. While there’s nothing wrong with looking like a Squarespace website, she is a master at creating a custom design to fit her client’s aesthetics. For example, take a peek at our “cart” in the upper right hand corner, Meg made that happen! The graphic of Butternut was hand drawn by Amber’s Artistry just for us!
Over the past few months, we worked with Meg to bring the new website to life! I am very excited to reveal the blog portion of it – the shop will be opening soon, we just have a few more things to button up!
For those of you that have been following along with me since the beginning, thank you so much for being loyal friends on this journey. Without you, Boxwood Avenue wouldn’t exist. I wish I could reach through the screen and give each of you a giant hug!
If you are new to our website, we welcome you with open arms! We hope you’ll reach out and say hello so that we can start getting to know each other!
Some of my favorite elements of the new site
Our new home page
The home page has everything you might be looking for all in one place. You can easily access reader favorites, subscriber resources, blog categories, and take a tour through our home! At the top you’ll find brand new posts where you can catch up on anything you might want to read!
As you scroll down the home page you’ll see Reader Favorites. This feature allows you to hop through different categories and see what some of our reader favorites are without having to visit a brand new web page!
Explore the Blog
One of my favorite aspects is the “explore the blog” feature on the home page which is located below Reader Favorites. This allows you to dive into different blog categories without being directed to a new web page. Now it is so easy for you to find exactly what you are looking for!
The mega menu at the top of the website is titled explore BOXWOOD. This menu contains all of the pages of the site in one easily accessible place! We hope you enjoy being able to find exactly what you’re looking for here!
We are still working out a few kinks in the recipe box, so forgive us if it doesn’t quite work for you, but once we have this wrapped up, you will be able to access all of our recipes in one place without having to sort through pages and pages of blog posts! I am very excited for this feature!
I love sharing our home projects to inspire you in your home! Now you can visit our home page to easily find projects and blog posts about specific parts of our home to help answer any questions you might have! We will also be adding a shop our home element to this page in the coming weeks!
