Home To Heather Highlights -

The story of how I found the perfect dresser for my daughter’s room. Sometimes, paint is the only answer.

2013 was a tough year for Rob who came down with a common cold that turned into a diagnosis of Phrenic Nerve Palsy. We’re happy to report that we are adjusting well and 2014 looks bright.

Building a holiday season from the riches of our community meant Swap Shopping my way to Get Real Live’s radio show. This experience has brought about so much good for our family and I will forever be an enthusiastic #swapshop participant.

The Generations of Hope campaign brought an opportunity to reflect and connect with many moms in my community dealing with infertility. I really enjoyed the series of posts I contributed and feel honored to have been a part of it.

My mom bought the perfect gift for my 35th birthday. After a makeover this vintage secretary desk is the new command center for Home To Heather. (Featured on Apartment Therapy!)

One of the best opportunities to come my way was heading to Sparkling Hill Resort with my best girlfriends.  It was an amazing time and I think about how peaceful and opulent the experience was often.  I can’t wait to go back!

The #hometogram Instagram Photo challenge I started on a whim was so much fun!  I can’t believe how nice it was to connect with fellow instagrammers over the common topic of ‘home’.  I’ll be doing more of them for sure.  Check the hashtag #hometogram to join in!

Brand Partnerships

RBC’s First Home campaign was one of the best initiatives for Home To Heather. Not only did I get to reminisce about our first place and last apartment, but I also continue to participate in #RBCFirstHome chats on twitter.

As a Sabra Tastemaker I traveled to Virginia to learn all about hummus. I taste-tested loads of product both straight from the factory and right here in Calgary and I’m proud to include their products in recipes here.

Coming up, I will be working with CIL Paint and Home Depot on their Paint Paralysis program.  Visit me in stores and I’ll give you a hand with picking the paint colour that’s right for you!
