I'm Heidi from My Beautiful Mess and I am so excited to be here on The Quiet Life of Violet, sharing a few things from my infinite list of blessings. I'm a stay-at-home mama of three beautiful, challenging and unique kiddos who spend their time making sure I'm never bored. I'm married to the most handsome man on the planet (sorry girls, he's taken) and he blesses me every day. We live a loud and messy and crazy and beautiful life...and we love being goofy. My blog, as an extension of who I am, is a fully random expression of my thoughts, feelings, questions, passions, projects, ideas and obsessions. And recently it's turned into a place where I count my innumerable, overwhelming blessings. I love to create in any way shape or form which leads me to constantly reinvent myself. I love reinventing myself. My Beautiful Mess is where I grow and learn and find beauty in the chaotic and wonderful mess of life. Come on over and visit...if you don't mind the mess. I also have an etsy shop where I sell some of my projects and photography.
In the last few months I've begun listing the many things I'm grateful for in a Gratitude Journal...and I am overwhelmed.
Find me here:
