When Heidi began this blog (which at the time was called “Connection. Intention. Joy.”) she thought the focus would be philanthropy and generosity, two (related) topics that had consumed much of her time and mental energy outside of work. But as the months went by it became clear that the blog was mostly about family, travel, and life abroad. With that revised focus in mind, and “Our Little Rookery” was born.

By sharing our stories, we hope to inspire other families to take risks, travel, and actively create the lives that they want to live, while providing some practical tips for how to do it.
