You might say our story — of how Handwritten Legacies came to be — started the day that Nick’s dad came to us with a simple question. That when we offered a quick solution it sparked a bigger idea, and a better way for all of us to write and share our own stories. But really, our story started long before…
At the start of summer 2013, just after our oldest Wyatt was born, Nick and I each scribbled down on separate pieces of paper the things that were most important to us in life — a ‘rocking chair test’ exercise if you will. Alongside other important items, on both of our lists were: own my own business.
I wasn’t prepared that day for how heavy that little line-item would weigh on my heart in the years coming, nor the vigor with which God would weave it into our days. It’s a crazy thing when you whisper to life a dream. This entire business was completely conceived out of a dream I didn’t know could ever come to life. It’s truly only because a fiercely committed and fearless husband pushed me to pursue my dream, our dream, that it ever came to be.
Our story is seeded in our profound love of heritage. In the way that our mind slows and heart quickens at the same time when we hear grandma tell that story about how they fled to a cottage in the woods when the war got bad. And in the way that the hairs on the back of our neck prickle as a cool fall breeze blows past and we can almost see pa-paw sitting right there up on that tractor talking about baby cows to be born next spring.
It is with a humble heart that I share with you this space that I have poured myself into. I hope that you’ll take a look around and learn a little more about our unique process and how you can create your own handwritten legacy.
Thank you for stopping by — we appreciate the support and hope you’ll be back! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions at all.
All the best,
