Today I feel super excited to feature the person behind our weekly blogs and our social media - Heather our social media manager.

During the week, Heather manages Barn & Willow’s social media and online content. On weekends she is a soldier with the Army’s 352nd Combat Support Hospital.
Every morning starts with coffee. No exception. Because I live with my sister, and my sister is an angel, the coffee is usually already brewing when I get downstairs. Then it’s business as usual…. checking in with all of you lovelies on email and social media, blogging, cooking, and reading.
I believe as humans we are most fulfilled when we are serving others. This manifests itself differently with every person. One of the ways I choose to serve is in the Army and it’s benefited me tremendously. I’ve grown, learned invaluable lessons and leadership skills, and made lifelong friends.
I love blending functionality with style. I own a small apartment and the clean modern lines open up the space and allow a few of my favorite staple pieces, like my sofa, to really shine.
Down comforters with a chic duvet is a must have for me. My mother gave me one for my bed as a young girl and I’ve never gone back!
Windows. I’m a huge fan of natural light and let’s be honest, how dreamy is it to wake up on a Saturday morning with the warm sun on your face? To make my bedroom a private retreat, I always make sure to install some drapes.
Full length mirrors are a girl’s best friend. Whether it’s a stand alone piece or part of the closet door, it’s an essential!
I love following mommy bloggers. They’re superwomen - managing a household, caring for kids, and creating this beautiful and inspirational online content. Emily Meyers of The Freckled Fox does a superb job of connecting style, design, cooking, and fitness. Plus her kids are adorable!
Wanderlust and a love of travel is in my blood. Several years of my childhood was spent living in the jungles of Ecuador with my pet monkey and a killer bug collection. The summer after my 18th birthday, my sister and I took off for a month-long, cross-country road trip, sleeping in the back of my Honda CRV and living off of coffee and beef jerky.
I don’t get to blog that often but my coffee chat with Heather on a rainy afternoon was super fun blogging about.
