Behind the Blog - Heather


Okay, I know this little series got completely neglected in my little blogging hiatus but I really am back, and so is Behind the Blog. So today I have an awesome mama to introduce to y'all named Heather. She blogs over at I lay Smiling, and I really hope you take the time to check her out.
Hi! I'm Heather. 
I'm 26. 
I married my high school sweetheart Jared, almost 5 years ago on 11.14.09, and I'm still in awe of how amazing life with him is. He's been my best friend for 13 years now and our love story is my absolute favorite. 

We had our first baby boy, Rowan Michael on 11.11.11, and a baby girl, Briar Elizabeth Story on 7.22.13. Being a wife and their mama.... it was like finally finding myself. I've never been so sure of what I was meant to do, or so happy in it. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for this amazing life. 

I feed off of creativity, and I love guiding my babies in it as well. I like to make pretty things. I paint, draw, and love DIY projects of almost any kind. Fashion, and taking care to be happy with how I look is important to me as well. Photography is another creative outlet for me, and I'm just starting to learn more about it. 

I love reading, especially reading blogs, I'm a tv show junkie (J and I re-watch our favorites on a constant loop), online shopping, being outside, and cooking/baking.

I wasn't an organized or clean person until I had kids. I'm a big believer in doing what you're called to do well. And I couldn't be good at raising two babies, being a wife and a homemaker if we were living in an unorganized mess. It just stresses me out. So another thing I enjoy is keeping a clean house, and always working to do better at it. Not to say that I don't struggle with it- because I do! But its something I'll always be working on. To be organized and intentional in the way that we're invested in raising our babies. With love, and lots of play, reading, crafting, learning, exploring, and growing. 
I live in a small town in upstate NY, in a house we bought 1 year and a half ago, (though we've been living here for  3 years), that just happens to be next door to my in-laws! 

I started blogging four years ago, shortly after Jared and I got married. Its something I have grown to love more and more as the years have passed. 

If you want to follow along, expect to see lots of posts on our life together as a family, milestones as our babies grow, how our life is guided by our faith in Christ, fashion posts, some DIY and the occasional recipe, some poetry, and lots and lots and lots of pictures. Posts on whatever is interesting to me at the time.
