Hello! My name is Michele and I’m thrilled to welcome you to Heron & Home. My husband Stephen and I have talked about creating this space for years, and are excited to share with you at last the fun and adventures of life on Town Creek.
As the name implies, this site is dedicated to both indoor and outdoor living. At Heron & Home, you will read about the home improvement projects we tackle and our never-ending work at taming our land. You will also learn about the name (“why heron?”) and the beautiful and storied Town Creek.
By trade, I am a graphic designer and Stephen is a writer. We are accidental entrepreneurs who started a business in 1996 when we knew very little about running a business (that’s a whole other story). Along we way, we raised two amazing and talented kids and built a business that works with utilities across several states. The greatest part of it all is that we’ve been able to work together, doing what we both love more than anything — spending time with one another. We have been blessed.
We have also had our share of struggles, in the form of a major curveball that threw our lives into a whirlwind beginning in 2014. In a way, that struggle is part of what led us to launch Heron and Home.
Thank you for spending a few minutes on our site. Please sign up for our updates so you’ll know when we add new content. We look forward to getting to know you as we share our journey with you at Heron & Home.
Creekside living is not for everyone. But as we share our love of home improvement projects, antiques, outdoor living, music and maybe some college football (Roll Tide Roll), we hope you find something here you will enjoy.
