Guest Post by HEATHER: Q and A

Born? Peoria, IL at OSF

Raised? Here locally, I’ve never gone far

University? I’ve taken classes at ICC but I do not have a formal degree

Hubby, Children? I’ve been with Ben for 12 years and married for 10 in September. We have 2 girls. Scarlett is 7 and my complete mini me and Annika is 5 and laid back like Ben.

Passions, career? I love to read, I always have a book or 2 going. It calms me. I also think family & friends are incredibly important. We are with either/all a lot. For work, I’m a satellite manager at Prep.Freeze.Cook by day and my passionate love to do “job” is Nurtured Baby Boutique. I love helping mamas get into cloth diapers or get that perfect fit with a carrier.

Best part of being their mom? The girls make me smile every single day. I can be having the worst day and they come home from school and just make it better. They’re both happy kids and SO busy. I can’t help but be happy with them.

Spring + Summer plans for the family?
CAMPING!! We are all so ready to get our tent out!

Helpful activities to keep your girlies active, to pass along to other families? We do a lot of reading and coloring. Even out camping they have books and crayons. Scarlett is really into spelling right now. We use erasable boards/markers for her to practice even in the car if she wants to!
