Hi, I’m Haley. Lovely to meet you. I’m so glad you stopped by Carrots, my little spot of the web to discuss faith, motherhood, literature, and urban homesteading!
I’m a Catholic convert, wife, and mama to two littles (and one on the way!) living in the bright, sunny South. After quitting art history grad school to be home with my babies, I teach ballet, homeschool my preschooler, love celebrating the Christian Year, and eat many generous helpings of bacon.
You may be here to browse my book lists and post about reading choices for kids, or maybe you heard that we don’t use birth control and you want to know what the deal is with those nutty Catholics. Or maybe you want to read more about motherhood and finding value in the home, wrangling small children in Mass, reflections on the Christian Year, or even breastfeeding in public.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Daniel: hardworking husband and loving daddy, who takes care of our unruly flock of 15 backyard chickens and our even more unruly giant frontyard urban vegetable garden before and after work. He also makes delicious sushi, runs ultra marathons, builds furniture, brews his own beer, and is the bane of the sneaky neighborhood raccoons attempting to carry off our chickens. Renaissance man!
We’ve got two wee bairns, Benjamin, and Lucy. Benjamin is our unexpected firstborn, hilarious, and adorable almost four-year-old. Check out his Birth Story if you’re into that kinda thing. Lucy is our one-year-old baby girl, full of sugar and spice and everything nice. You can read her Birth Story here.
I love connecting with my readers! I try to answer every single comment (although sometimes it takes me a couple of days to respond). You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter (@haleycarrots), Pinterest (haleyofcarrots), and Instagram (carrotsformichaelmas) or writing about our flock of backyard chickens and other urban homesteading topics at Mama And Baby Love where I’m the Gardening Editor.
