The Who, What & Why


Welcome! 

I am so glad you are here. My name is Heather.  I live in Colorado with my husband and three daughters.  

I've created a little spot on the www for my love of crafts, and writing, and sharing of goodness.  

Why create a virtual 'spot'?

I mean really who cares about what I have to say, right?  Well I happen to love the idea that if anything I say or do or share reaches one person than that'll be enough.  Because this life is HARD.  I spent a number of years trying to work through a traumatic event in my own head, and it didn't feel good.  But having a virtual speck of real estate does feel good!  I hope you find me, and the 'schtuff' here brings you some comfort.

My crazy life...


So those three girls.  'Nough said.  We are currently still in the elementary school age.  Lots of drama.  I have analyzed this thoroughly, and I've convinced myself I could've handled two, but three sent me over the edge.  Of a boat.  

But seriously, I LOVE my life.  I just absolutely refuse to subscribe to the notion that I have to be perfect.  Or have perfect kids.  We are messy some days.  We fight.  We yell a little.  There are finger prints everywhere, and dirt smudges.  I'm a big fan of cleaning with wipes.  That said, my style is rustic and comfy cozy.  It's like a dirty, cluttered #joannagaines up in here. 

I also write for a Kids' Yoga Blog (KiddingAroundYoga.com).  Which means I do believe in mindfulness, deep breathing, and trying to change the reactive mode we find ourselves in sometimes.  I adore Brene Brown and Danielle LaPorte and Marie Forleo.  I just can't always pull myself together.  And I'm fully, seriously, really okay with that.  

What to expect here

I made the decision to organize my content into categories, sort of like the base of a table, with the idea that our goal should be to level these areas of our lives so as to have a level life table:  Personal, Spiritual, Financial, and Physical.  I'll just keep adding content to these areas as I continue to have epiphanies (insert nervous emoji here).  

Here's a diagram:




My '30 days of...' tab was an attempt on my part to tackle a theme every month, but I DEFINITELY lost the bubble on that.  The content is still there, and it's worthy of a look.  

The final word
  
So life ain't easy, and the goal isn't to be perfect.  Not mine at least.  I strive for being real and respectful.  Every single day.  With everyone.  Myself included.  There's a saying: "my religion is love, and I'd die for that."  Yep, that sums it up quite nicely.
