Hi everyone,

We ran into some snags, so things took a bit longer than anticipated. 
However, the new version of the site is up - including ability to add 
additional pages to the nav and a blogging option, should you desire. 
The site is running off of Netlify using Gatsby as the static site 
generator and the React framework.

You can check out the updates here:

In order to move this over to gitlab, we'd like to ask for the following:
- Access to your gitlab repo for users jimmytipit and gcutrini
- Need to create an oauth app in gitlab for Netlify permissions
- Once we have access, we can update the repo and make sure we 
incorporate the updates you've already made in gitlab

Once that's all done, we're here to help or happy to let you run free 
with your repo as you see fit :)
