hi! i’m heather.
i still don’t quite know where the idea began or what pushed me over the edge to start a blog. but one day the thought was there.
now, mind you, i have lots of thoughts & crazy ideas. some flit in & out. some linger & fade. some i attempt & they fizzle. some stick around. some persist no matter how often or rationally i talk myself out of them. this thought fell into the latter category.
i love to create in any and all forms. i love seeing how simple things – seeds & dirt, needle & thread, a pile of ingredients, pictures & paper, coffee & friends – with our touch is transformed into a meal or a moment or an exchange…creating a memory that we gather to share. [please note: i know exactly how cheeze-ball that sounds. but i’m for real!]
blogging itself is still scary and a bit overwhelming, but at the same time it feels big & new & exciting…and, yes, a bit ridiculous. i’m hoping “good” ridiculous. we shall see.
i believe that the heart of a home is the kitchen, where many of life’s simplest & greatest moments happen.
i love jesus, creating, nature walks, hammocks, sunrise, sunset, flip-flop tan lines, campfires, smores, fresh mango, gardens, laying under a sky full of stars, fresh-squeezed orange juice, exploring new places, red wine, farmers markets & art festivals, coffee dates, long talks with good friends, barbeques, the sound of waves, lowercase letters & ampersands, learning about new cultures, candles, rainy days & laughing until i cry.
let the adventure begin…
