I'm having a css problem with this site and I'm just not seeing what I'm doing wrong.

The site is http://www.juliannstitick.com/

There is a right sidebar div and then there is a left-content div that has 4 boxes and blog posts. I had removed some elements and pushed the right side bar up. No problem. There used to be a slider where the text is now and she wants the text there and the slider in the header. Fine.

So now that the slider is gone I need to move the "left-content' up. But for some reason that I cant figure out the sidebar is pushing the left-content down. The only way I was finally able to get the left-content up was to set a negative top margin.

That seems wrong to me. So while it looks good now and the client could care less, it's bugging me because it seems wrong.

Any ideas why the left content is being pushed down?
