Hi there, I’m Heidi! I don’t know about you but sometimes motherhood can feel like a big job. I love my family dearly but keeping all of the things going, all of the time, can be a lot. If you are feeling this way too, I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone!

One thing I’ve found that helps me manage the ups and downs of life is having a fun project that’s all my own. I’ve dabbled in various art forms and other things over the years (acrylic painting, painting our oak trim white, sewing, drawing, decluttering, hand lettering, etc – I love to try and learn new things). but right now what brings me joy is writing.

On this blog I will be sharing ideas and tips about life, parenting, and the various hobbies I’ve dabbled in. I will also share things I’ve learned that have helped me along the way. I hope that you can find some ideas that help you on your journey too!

If your curious to know more about me, I’m a mama of two great kids – wild guy (9) and unicorn girl (5) and I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Peter. I previously taught elementary school for 12 years before transitioning to a part-time work from home job. This allows me more energy and time to focus on my family and practice real self care. We have a sweet dog and two silly cats. I love Jesus, art, going to parks with my family, talking to friends, journaling, dark chocolate, decaf coffee, and all things turquoise.

I’m glad that you’re here!
