About Me

Hi, I’m Heather… Welcome to my blog!

Me… A Selfie =o)

I’m a blessed empty-nester, living with the love-of-my-life, and one adult son, who as he says it, has “Awesometism”. I’m hoping he’ll do some guest blogging for me. If he does, you will be blessed. Perhaps a cooking/baking one?

When my husband, Mr. Matrimony, did a 7-month tour in Afghanistan, we decided to down-size from our circa 2005, 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 3,000+ square foot home, into our 100+ year old rental that boasts just over 1000 square feet, one bathroom, an office, and 2 bedrooms.

So much of the home was literally destroyed by our renters, it was heart-breaking! But we got out our paint rollers and hammers, and fixed it up enough to live in. I promised Mr. Matrimony I will not spend a fortune on remodeling, and he’s holding me to it! But remodel it I (we) will!!!

With all I do, I try to remember first… what God would have me do. Secondly, I try to remember what my husband would want me to do. For me, putting his needs before my own and learning about being a Godly wife, have given me


It saddens me when I hear others say it’s “old fashioned”, “demeaning”, and “unequal”. For us, we are more equal following these roles. I hope to share some insight on that with this blog but not in a preachy way… blech to that, lol!

Friends asked me to start a blog to share some of my ideas, so here goes…

    Dear Heather,
    I left you a message on Facebook. I would be glad to present you DIY blog in my magazine – including the lovely idea of the swing chair-chair swing 🙂 Please contact me as soon as possible, if interested: I will explain you perfectly our project and our magazine (which appears in Germany). Hope to have your answer soon. Best wishes, Sabine

      Hello Sabine! Please forgive me for taking so. long to reply to your email. We have been in California at the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest! Or dogs, Boolah and Isaboo did not win, but we had a wonderful time! I talked to my husband about your offer and we are both very interested. We feel honored that you have asked us! Please let me know what we would need to do.
      Thank you so much,
      Heather Wilson
