From beautiful Mount Vernon, IL

About

Beyond living intentionally, focusing on God's purpose for me, and trying to be patient wife & mama - I'm a bit everywhere! You might notice my bright red lipstick, or the fact that I talk 100 miles per hour. I love being an amateur at-home barista, and I'm border line obsessed with golden retrievers. My husband and I live in rural Southern Illinois with our son, Beckham, and our sweet pup, Harper Lee. 

You can typically find me wearing red lipstick and busting out my cheesy dance moves to my favorite Disney Channel soundtracks.

Hey there, I'm Haley Nicole, and I'm so excited to share bits and pieces of my daily life, businesses, and faith with you. From an early age, I have been a go-getter, self motivated, and competitive. Over the past few years, I've started to realize living a slower, more intentional life can be more fulfilling than I ever could've imagined. I'm thrilled that you're here - and that you too are interested in the idea that *more* doesn't always mean *better.*
