About Us

Welcome to the blog!

I'm Rachel!

Wife to Aaron.
Mom to 2 handsome boys.
Stay at home mama.
Passionate about health, happiness, naptime, DIY projects, and my morning coffee.

Barefoot in a wedding photo??? YES. That's how I roll.
Aaron is my wonderful, crazy, make-me-roll-my-eyes-at-him-daily, husband!

He's a Chiropractor and owns his own office, but I think he secretly wishes he had his own hunting show on the Outdoor Channel.
He's insanely passionate about hunting, but man is he the best Daddy and husband I could ask for!
We were married July 21, 2013 after 7 months of dating.
Yes you read that right.
It's true what they say,
When you know, you just know.

The first born: Gavin Daniel.
Born August 21, 2014.

The second born: Jaxon Cole.
Born December 3rd, 2016.

Harley the dog. 
Birthday is March 13th, 2012.
(Harley was my little pup before I even met Aaron... so he's technically my first baby!)

I started this blog with the intentions of sharing my journey through life as a new mom, trying to figure out this new chapter in life, while still enjoying my own passions outside of being "Mom".

I love God, family, friends, holidays, motorcycles, the outdoors, oceanside beaches, HGTV- mostly Fixer Upper, nap time, sunsets, country & oldies music, and my morning cup of coffee.
