Author: Heather

I am a maker of watch-y and read-y things, and a lover of cheese, baking, the Oxford comma, and mischief. I was born and raised in Oregon, and like to walk alone in the woods while breathing in pine tree scent. I lived in Brooklyn for three years with my husband, and I am glad to be back in the Pacific Northwest! Husband has opened a game store, where I write from most days. We live with our two kitty daughters, Diana and Helena. (Points if you accurately guess their namesakes!) Diana enjoys sleeping and headbutts, and Helena enjoys purring and sitting on my face while I'm sleeping. I'm an author of both non-fiction and fiction, so keep an eye out to see what pops up!

Relying on I

Something I was really hit with on Sunday is my reliance on I. In pre-marital counseling, we were taught to use I statements. This is so you don’t blame your feelings on someone else, and also to help the conversation be productive instead of name calling. This is the hardest thing ever when you are in the middle of a… Read more →
