Meet The Sisters

Cropped Family

Hi! I’m Vanessa.

The…ahem…younger of the 2 sisters of At the Picket Fence.

I currently reside in the Pacific Northwest with my wonderful, best friend of a husband and 2 precious kiddos. You will often hear them referred to as “Yankee Boy” and the “Rascals”. I do realize that sounds like some kind of crazy, backwoods blue grass band!

I am a full-time, stay-at-home mom who doesn’t find herself staying home all that much. This role of wife and mother is beyond what I ever hoped for and it was definitely not the easiest one to come by. If you want to find out more about my journey to motherhood, I will be sharing our story in a series called A Labor of the Heart.

I adore my extended family and one of my deepest longings would be to have all of us living near each other. We all actually like each other! With everyone in different states we do what we can to stay connected and we definitely make the most of our times together! Blogging has been such a wonderful way for my sister and I to be apart of each other’s lives, even across the miles. We are so excited to be on this journey of life together and to get to share in yours as well!

Hi! I’m Heather.

The…ahem…self admitted oldest of the 2 sisters of At The Picket Fence. Of course they say with age comes wisdom and maturity … at least that’s what I tell myself anyway. grin.

I currently reside in the rolling hills of Kentucky as a transplant.

While I’m not sure if I would call “The Bluegrass State” my true home, I sure do like living in the land of The Kentucky Derby, The Mint Julep and Bourbon…(thought I’d just throw that last one in.) I am the mom of two incredible kids. “The Boy” who is 18 and is a recent home-school high school graduate and “The Girl” who is 13 and thinks she’s 18. But most importantly I am the wife of my very own southern gentleman “Bama Boy” who won me over with that Alabama drawl..be still my heart! He is still the love of my life after 19 years.

I am a stay at home mom who has been homeschooling for 10 years and has survived to tell about it! I graduated a homeschooler this year….yes it is possible! I have a passion for writing, blogging, photography but most of all cooking! But my biggest passion is for my Savior and a close second my family! Blogging has provided an avenue for Vanessa and I to connect in ways I never dreamed imaginable…and you get to come along for the ride! Thanks for visiting our little corner of the blogging community. Come join us now…At The Picket Fence!
