My name is Hailey Marie Andresen. I met and married my high school sweetheart in Phoenix and just over a year ago we had our first son, Owen. In the process of trying to conceive we got the itch to move to NYC. Coincidentally Zack landed a job interview the day I found out I was pregnant – so, we packed our bags (literally, that’s all we brought) and headed east in March of 2015. This September we celebrated Owen’s first birthday and couldn’t be happier to call Brooklyn our borough. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work from home where I spend my days juggling Household Mag. and taking care of Owen.
I started Household Mag. in July of 2015 as a journal and creative outlet as I awaited my first child and built our nest in Brooklyn. Since launching the blog just over a year ago it has grown and expanded into a business I would have never imagined this time last year. I have had the opportunity to build relationships with brands I admire, have met a handful of friends, opened the Household Shop and Zack and I recently launched a parenting podcast titled Mom and Dad Made a Podcast. While I have a lot on my plate, I know I can’t do it all. Amy Frances has been by my side since the beginning helping me build the Household brand and photographing every step along the way. Hire her. I’m serious.
