About Me

My name is Heather, and I began this space to record pieces of my life while highlighting the theme of simplicity. To be honest, I’m an introvert who is easily overwhelmed. I learned years ago that if I was going to have peace and joy in this life of marriage, parenting four children, keeping a house, home education, and everything else that life throws at you, I needed to simplify, simplify, simplify. In the process I discovered that it not only made life doable, but richer as well.

I have been blissfully married to The Man since 1995, and we have been blessed with three sons and a daughter (whose real names are not used on this blog). My current vocation is educating my children in truth, goodness, and beauty.  I love learning alongside them, and learning how they learn.

We make an attempt (sometimes) at whole foods, but we are not gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, fat-free, or meat-free. I garden a tiny bit, write a tiny bit, and needle-felt a tiny bit. I am trying to learn to knit, but that also comes in tiny bits. I love beauty, nature, water, travel, research, home design, and uncluttered living.

The Man and I make our home in rural Wisconsin in a lovely renovated foursquare.
