A year ago days for Heather consisted of making school lunches, working, going to school, wondering what to make for dinner, driving from karate practice to swimming practice to soccer practice before collapsing in bed. And in the moments in between she wondered if there was more to life. Heather is now living her passion. She is an award-winning travel writer who is taking a trip around the world with her husband and son so she can freelance about the places they travel.
