    Hi Ruthie,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    After analyzing your site in google pagespeed insights I found three main reasons that making your site slow. The first reason is that you are using very big images that are taking insanely long time to load the. You need to optimize and compress these images using our WP Smush Pro plugin.

    Secondly, your server is taking very long to respond, you can decrease this response time by installing a full page cache plugin like WP Super Cache or using PHP7.

    Lastly, there are lots of scripts that are blocking your website to load. You can fix this issue by moving them in footer or enable script deferring by using our WP-Hummingbird plugin.

    I will recommend you to install the WP-Hummingbird plugin first, run performance test and follow the recommendations step by step.

    We have published a detailed article on our blog explaining how you can make your website fly with hummingbird:

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:
