About Me

I am Heather Kirkpatrick and welcome to my blog. I live in Connecticut with my husband Jared, and our three kids: Nathan age 6, Hannah age 4, and Ray age 2.

I originally started this blog as a way to share recipes and meal plans with my friends, as well as catalog them for myself for future reference. As my interests grow and change, this blog is morphing with them. Don't be surprised if you find me writing about parenting, fitness, natural healthcare (I am especially passionate about the benefits of essential oils), and my faith.
