Hi. I’m Rachel.
I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, great-aunt (!), and friend.
I am a doula.
I left my heart in the city when we moved to our small town, but I’m growing to love it here.
I have two small children, two large cats, four backyard chickens, and just the best husband.
I love to cook, but I hate the monotony of making dinner. every. day.
I am a Scorpio, but I don’t really act like one.
When it comes to creative spaces, I do love a fabulous mess. Sometimes our entire house becomes a creative space.
I recently read: “Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn’t a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their own song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their songs instead.” * I love this.
I am a quilter, a crafter, a novice gardener, and a sometimes writer, scrapbooker and amateur photographer. I don’t love to knit.
I am a fan of Indian food, dahlias, independent radio, social justice, and my mom.
I sometimes like to play with my kids’ toys after they’re asleep.
I wish I knew how to dance.
I believe in little things.
I worry too much.
I love words like grace, and balance, and pinafore, and nonsense, and welcome. Best of all, welcome. To our humble blog, welcome.
I hope you will feel at home.
