  1. Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  2. I truly love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own website and would love to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called.
