Hi @pazyluz† - I loaded and refreshed in a few different browsers and wouldn't say it appeared slow on my end. That said, your header image would probably benefit from being a little bit more condensed.

Peggy, to complement what Jake mentioned, I ran a Pingdom test here: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/U65F5/www.peggygreen.net


It came up with several things that indicate that the server itself is slow loading and that the structure of the canonicals is probably causing an issue.  That means, in more plain English, your site should have www. in front of peggygreen.net under normal circumstances, even though someone should and could go directly to http://peggygreen.net.  However, without the structure allowing the www., any links using the www. have to be referred, slowing the site.


You likely have some errors in your CSS, as well, causing a very minor amount of wait time, but I'm more concerned about the connect time the server is taking for pretty standard things such as the load of javascript and jquery. 


It's possible you have a permalinks issue too, which could cause some of these issues.


Show the link to your hosting company and ask them to please advise you about improving your speed.  Is this inexpensive hosting or a VPS account?
