About Me

My name is Heather and this blog is about how I celebrate life with my family. I will share some of our families favorite recipes with you that are simple and healthy...well most of them anyway. I will share my tips on how I plan our little celebrations. I will show you how I decorate everything I can think of. And most importantly I try to do it all on a Wal Mart budget.

It can be hard being a busy mom and it gets even harder when we are dealing with that unknown species we call the teenager. I do not claim to do it all perfectly, but my goal is to make it pretty and to enjoy every second I have with my kids. Sometimes the most simple things in life are the most rewarding.

I am a thirty something wife and mother. I have been married to the love of my life for 12 years now. I have the privilege of being mom to our 4 adopted children. I love my kids like crazy and I can't get over how amazing they are. I am constantly humbled with the blessings and joys that God has blessed me with. I want to share a little of that with you.

The Kid Stuff section is 100% inspired by my four creative consultants. They also have a big say in the recipe section as well as the holiday and seasonal decorating.

I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact me at lifeatwillowcottage@gmail.com
