This is me…Lightgreenmom
A little about me and my little light green family…..My name is Heather (lightgreenmom). My amazing partner in this life Jeff and I have known each other since high school. We have been on many adventures and gotten into many shenanigans along the way. We finally were married in the winter of 2008.
Before becoming a mom, I was a stylist, educator and salon owner in a small town in Southern Ohio. I enjoyed the busy bustle of the salon, but felt there was something missing from the picture.
We then decided to move 1000 miles from the place we had called home since birth and start fresh by the beach in Sunny Florida. Along for the adventure was our French Bulldog Sophie. You will certainly see her here at lightgreenmothering.
Now, fast forward a few years later, and we made the decision to add another face to our family. In 2012 we had our first little girl. Her name is Harlow (Little H.)
We decided as a family that I would stay at home with little h. and she would be raised the way we as her parents would want her to be. That included Breastfeeding, Cloth Diapering (that would turn to EC), babywearing, among many other natural and mindful aspects of family.
Fast forward a few more years and we welcomed our second baby girl earthside at home in the water. Little J (Jagger) very much so lives up to the name and could not be more opposite of her older sister.
Since Two children to our family, it has made me think and re-think alot about my life and the way I live it. Now we have these brand new little beings to show how to make this world a better place. So we are on the path of making our lives a little more green without breaking our single income budget. And with that, lightgreenmothering was born!
This blog is a place to document the journey and share all the wonderful ( and not so wonderful) experiences and tips I am growing from as a mother, and wife as well as finding my new self in the process.
