About Me

Heyyy! I'm glad you're here! I'm Emily, a full-time middle school counselor and part-time blogger living in my small hometown in central Pennsylvania.  

In 2009, my husband and I bought our first house, a ranch home with stone walls and a mid-century modern vibe in a neighborhood informally known as The Heights.  

Since then, we've been working to update, modernize, and put our own stamp on our home.  I started writing House the Heights in June of 2013 to chronicle my love of home decor, recipes, crafty exploits, and our never-ending journey of making this home our own.    

So grab some coffee (or wine....but only if you bring some for me!) and check out what we've been up to. And comment, email, or follow me in some way while you're at it!  It thrills me to no end to find people that are into house stuff like I am, so strike up a conversation while you're here! I'd love to get to know you and build new friendships!


  1. Hi Emily - I just wanted to let you know that I added you to the PA Bloggers map (http://mailboxjourney.com/pennsylvania-bloggers/) and also I have family where you live! (My MIL) and I also bought my wedding dress at the boutique on Main Street. :)

    1. How funny!! I got mine there too ;) Thanks for adding me!!

  2. So fun to have found your blog! I also live in Central PA (Although I'm not quite sure where the "Heights" are).
