Heather Q

Hey there, nice to see you here. My name's Heather and I'm a travel junkie. I love anything and everything new, all the time. My husband loves everything the same, all the time. I know for him, once we do something for the first time, it is already our routine. We love each other infinitely and are looking forward to do the same thing repeatedly every day in new places by hiking the AT in 2017. My husband, Joel, is the social media guru so my social media links take to you his accounts of tracking our adventure! If you want to check out my artwork or keep updated on our adventures and writing beyond the AT our website is happyreign.com. If you want to watch our hike, my husband's YouTube channel is 'Joel Wanders'. If you want to read the love story of what brought the two of us together in our thirties you can buy our love story on Amazon.com just look up Heather Q! Happy Reading!
