Hi, I am Christie! A lifetime ago, I was a teacher. I taught many ranges, from second grade to fifth grade, all the way up to middle school social studies. I loved learning about and enjoying all the children and families I got to experience, and consider it the greatest preparation imaginable for motherhood.
I am now a full-time mama to Hadley (April 2013) and Sadie (December 2014.) My husband and I raise our family in beautiful (but extremely hot in the summertime) Northern California. I spend each day trying to enjoy my girls to the fullest, cherishing the sweet moments and learning from the more challenging ones (oh, teething!) Aside from my daughters, a few other things that make me happy would be: decorating our home (be it repainting old furniture, a steal at a store, or an occasional splurge elsewhere,) practicing/learning photography, finding delicious recipes for cooking and baking, a nice, long walk, finding great baby and mama stuff, and quality time with my family and friends. I am happy to share my journey and discoveries with you! <3
Why the name Henley & Hadley?
Well, I created this blog when Hadley was a new baby. I live in an area called Henley. I figured my blog would focus on home life and motherhood, so Henley and Hadley seemed like a catchy way to bring the two together. <3
