About Me

Well, hello there!

My name’s Heather and I’m the author/creator of Simple + Good. I’m a Writer, a Goat Mama to 15 Nigerian Dwarves, and the Assistant Director of Rockvale Writers’ Colony in my new hometown of College Grove, TN. And I’m here to tell you that I DON’T have it all figured out.

If you don’t know already, I started this blog in 2016, in the midst of a personal “crisis.” There I was, working 9-5 at my dream job in Nashville, only to sit in over an hours’ worth of traffic to visit my boyfriend’s family farm in the evenings. Don’t get me wrong – it was totally worth it. But these two parts of me felt so at odds with one another, that I wasn’t sure where I belonged anymore.

So I decided the beauty of this conundrum was that I could be both. And being both…. was my rebrand. Until, of course, I moved out to the country, got a different job, started calling that boyfriend my fiance, and decided to give this whole blog thing a little more focus.

You see, I believe that we all have a certain personal brand we carry on our shoulders that is constantly subject to change. And whether that thought fills you with fear or hope, I’m here to tell you that it’s OKAY. Because Rebranding is what makes us interesting. Rebranding is what makes us unique. And if we’re truly living life, we’ll realize that Rebranding is happening to us all the freakin’ time.

It’s the awareness of these changes that makes them Necessary to our personal growth and development. And it’s the acceptance of these changes that allows us to Own Our Path.

Join me on my journey and learn that you, too, are capable of change – in big ways and small – and explore your passions by owning your path and saying ‘Heck YES’ to every unexpected opportunity. You never know where it might take you…
