“There is no more beautiful state than Arkansas.”—Mary Steenburgen
Arkansas gets a bad rep for being backwards and redneck. But it is so much more that. Its called the Natural State for a reason. From its mountains to its lake. You can be in the city one minute and the next climbing a mountain.
Who am I?
I am Heather and I love my state.
I was born in Arkansas as military brat. My dad served in the military and was stationed in Arkansas. It was here he met mom. They got married and from there we moved to South Dakota and Nevada. When my dad retired, we moved back to Arkansas. Nothing really exciting ever happened to me. I was normal teenager. I liked the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, ABC’s TGIF, and hanging out with friends.
But I don’t think my love for traveling really started until after I graduated high school. I got to spend two weeks in Europe from Ireland to France. I loved every minute of it and couldn’t wait to do more.
Traveling Arkansas has been a wonderful experience. I have really gotten to see more of it through the Civil War Passport my family has been working on for the last four years and being with my wonderful husband, Jacob.
