Hello there and welcome to Blissful Intent! My name is Heather and I am a mother to two wonderful little girls and a handsome man. A place to find Practical Tips For A Purposeful Life.
This blog is intended for moms (and dads) who are looking for understanding that they aren’t alone in this busy life. As you look around Blissful Intent you will find topics related to parenting, motherhood, meal planning & organization and my most favorite of all- budgeting. I hope you find some of what I have to say helpful or at the very least insightful. If you take away even one thing I share I will feel as if I’ve succeeded.
I’m here in the muck just like the rest of you. Life isn’t easy and it’s only been made harder to be present in the here and now by social media, and just technology in general. We are all stuck to it, and our children are watching us, learning from us! However, with a little bit of willpower I think we can all find a way to live more intentionally.
If you’re wondering why you should listen to me- well I’m here doing life right along with you. I’m the mom in the checkout line with two kids screaming, dancing and begging for all the things. I’m the wife in the game store searching for the perfect gift for her husband; asking you which you think is better. I’m the woman you called when you need to get your taxes filed or needed help with your bookkeeping. I get it and I’m here with you, next to you, behind you as we try to live life more intentionally.
I’m a very independent woman, wife and mother- in that order. I have Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Management. I work in a full-service accounting firm where I keep the books for numerous clients as well as sell insurance. I’m licensed in the state of Missouri to sell life and health insurance as well as certain retirement products. Finances are a passion of mine. I am constantly looking for new ways to save my family money and plan for the future. I love numbers, research, coffee, wine & Netflix. I have a wonderful husband that I met in high school. We have been together for 10 years, married for 7. His name is Nate & he’s part of the greatest military force in the world. Together we have two beautiful daughters- a spunky little blonde girl named Nat who is 6 years old. Our fiery little redhead is named Re and she’s 19 months. We live in the Midwest- born and raised. On any given day I can walk out on my front porch and see wildlife. I love to window shop, eat and sleep (although I don’t get much since Re joined us)… I have kicked around the idea for years to start a blog of some sort, but I have never found the courage to follow through. I don’t have many hobbies because… Well let’s face it because I’m a thrifty and hobbies cost money. I have found myself through the years strapped to my phone and social media accounts. Over the last year I have been making it a point to put down the devices when I get home and focus more on my family. Here you will find things I’ve written based on my own experiences as a mother and wife. I hope you stick around to see what I can do to spark a little intention in your life.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you stick around to follow me on this journey.
