I'm just setting up a new site and using the static front page layout in TwentyTwelve...
My issues is that when setting up widgets on the front page, there is a stupid amount of vertical space in between the widgets in the left column. I'm using a text widget in the right column for a mailing list opt-in form... I'm assuming there's something funky going on with that, but I haven't been able to find anything obvious in that code that looks like it would cause this issue.
The site is at http://happymamahealthybaby.com/
Also, is there a way to force specific widgets into one column or the other? Right now, it seems like they just alternate back and forth, regardless of size.
I'm not a total newbie to building websites, but I'm definitely not a developer by any stretch of the imagination... I was trying to avoid setting up a child theme, editing too much CSS, etc, but can if I have to. If that's what it's going to take, please just talk to me like I'm an idiot :)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
