Heart & Home is a collection of trinkets, tokens and provisions for the every day home.
This store has been a thought in the back of my mind for a couple of years now. It's taken a lot for me to finally make it happen, but I'm so excited! I have always really enjoyed shopping, and now with kids, I find myself doing a lot of it online. I thought having a store would be a great way to find new things and also share them! Everything in the store will be things I love, and hopefully you will, too!
My husband actually thought of the name. I knew I wanted it to have a heart in the logo or in the name. Hearts are very important to us as our first born son was born with Congenital Heart Defects and only lived for 12 days. Though our hearts have been broken, they have been blessed with two more baby hearts to love, which arrived in the form of boy girl twins :) Home is where the heart is. After talking about heart being in the store name, home came naturally. Home is where the heart is :)
I started blogging about five years ago and I've so enjoyed "meeting" new people, learning new things and finding new things! The online and social media community that I have been part of has been such a blessing. I had no idea that I could truly appreciate and love people I don't technically know in person. This circle has given me support, confidence and a place to journal my thoughts.
I was born and raised in Texas until I was 18 years old and then I moved to Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas. I met my husband my second week of college, in 2002, and we've been together ever since. We now live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was born and raised. I'm very thankful it was easy to call Tulsa home and even more thankful that my parents decided to move here a few years after I did.
Before becoming a mommy, I worked in marketing for a company that helps senior citizens and their quality of life. I loved it and I love seniors. If I ever work outside of the home again, I hope to go back.
Knox & Sloane were born in 2011 and my what an experience! I have truly loved it! It can be quite tricky, but it's oh so worth every single second. They are amazing.
Some of my very favorites in life are: Jesus, my family, my friends, New York City, coffee creamer, Christmas, caramel apples dipped in toffee, Saturday mornings, sitting on the beach, seeing my husband interact with our kids, snuggling in bed with my people and staying up too late.
My husband, Brent, and our families have been so helpful in helping me get this store up and going. Without their help and chasing my tiny tots, I definitely wouldn't have been able to get this site up and going.
Tracy & Tom Sailors have taught me so much about E-Commerce and have helped make my site functional. They offer great services and I'd be so lost without them.
Penny Lane Desgins made the site look pretty and just as I wanted it. Marina is amazing to work with and a design guru!
The extremely talented Ashley Brooke, of Ashley Brooke Designs, designed my logo and social media buttons.
