Introducing Laicie Heeley from A Thousand Threads!
... a little introduction:
Hi I'm Laicie! My guy is Mark and our littles are Austin (two legs) and Lennon (four). I grew up in Oregon and still call it home, but we live happily in Maryland... and I have to admit, there are a lot of pretty great things about this state too. The town we live in is full of family farms, wide-open spaces, and great local food - all the things we love, and love to share.
How would you describe your blog?
A Thousand Threads is a blog about building a meaningful life. It's about enjoying the simpler things like food and time with family and friends. And of course, it's about our life together. Mark does most of the photography on the blog, and I do the writing. It's truly our passion project, and I hope that shows.
What do you do for a living?
I work at a think tank in DC on national security issues related to things like nuclear weapons in Iran and the Defense budget in Congress. An average day ranges anywhere from briefing the press on the latest news to writing and publishing articles to meeting with members of Congress and the administration about my work. It's exciting to live and work in DC, but it's also nice to go back home to somewhere with a little slower pace.
What do you do outside of work?
I love the outdoors. We spend as much time as we can hiking, running, biking, backpacking, and just generally staying active. And I love music and movies and books. If I could, I'd spend all day every day reading, writing and wandering around in the sun.
I'm such a t-shirt girl. There's nothing better than a really nice fitting t-shirt, or one with a story. I'll admit I'm a little bit of a t-shirt hoarder. The ones with the stories are full of holes, but I just love them even more.
