Today is officially the birthdate of
Heather Nicole U!
I’ve decided that I wanted to start this blog to journal my life for my family, friends, and new friends to follow.
For those of you who don’t know me yet, I am Heather Nicole (soon to be) Unice. I am a stay-at-home mommy to a beautiful little girl, fiancé to my high school sweetheart, fitness addict, & aspiring interior decorator. I was born and raised in Ohio. After graduating from Ohio Univeristy with my BA in Psychology, I took on what I thought then was the biggest adventure of my life — I was on my way to California with the love of my life, Chris. Soon after we moved, we felt like something was missing in our lives so we adopted a handsome Swiss Shepherd and named him Balto. He was immediately a part of our family and truly our little baby. But, little did I know our whole life would change a few years later when we bought our first home outside of LA. We were overwhelmed with a feeling of accomplishment; at just 23 we moved across the country together, adopted a dog together and bought a beautiful home in California together. We felt on top of the world. Nothing could give us this type of high that we were on. Boy, was I wrong. A little over a year after buying our home we found out that we were about to fill one of the empty rooms with the most beautiful little girl. In December, 2017 we welcomed Aria Viviana to this world and our lives have never felt more complete. Now this — this was the biggest adventure yet.
Months later, we got news Chris was offered a position in Las Vegas, Nevada and as a family we could not pass up this opportunity. So there we were packing up boxes in our first home together; seeing California in our rear view mirror was definitely a bittersweet moment. We left our first home, our daughters first home, our daughters only home she has ever had, the place she learned to roll over, to crawl, to say “Mama” and “Dada, ”but at the same time we couldn’t be more excited to see what was to come.
Here we are today, a family of 3 (4, including Mr. Balto) in our second home, in a beautiful city outside of Las Vegas. I am ENGAGED to the love of my life! (I’ll tell you that story later & it’s a good one.)
I wake up everyday and think “Wow, I am blessed” — I am blessed to have a healthy, beautiful, smart little girl as my daughter. I am blessed to wake up in house that we have made into a home. I am blessed to be building this empire with my best friend who is also my FIANCÉ.
I can’t wait to document all the overwhelming, exciting, emotional parts of my life. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on motherhood, interior design, fitness, and lots of in between! & I’ll be drinking reheated coffee while I do so. Welcome to my world.
