Hey there friend! So before we get to blogging, I want to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me.
My name is Rachael and I am 33 years old. I am a wife to an amazing man, and a mother to two incredible little babies. I am currently a stay at home mom and I love every second of it! Prior to my children, I was a hair stylist and I attended the best Cosmetology school in the state! I adored working in a salon and that field of work has always been a passion of mine.
I am VERY passionate about what I love, starting with God. I would be nothing without Him and I would have nothing without Him. My parents always raised me to serve the Lord and run after Him with all my heart and I have and I am now raising my children to do the same thing. I’ve seen the Lord do some incredible things in my life and the lives around me-He is just so awesome and always faithful! Proverbs 3:5-6 has always been my life verse and one that I’m reminded of often when I start to doubt Him…
My SECOND passion, is my husband, Stephen. Steve and I met when we were 25, and we married when we were 27 on October 29, 2011…in a snow storm!!! The storm certainly took us by surprise as we were supposed to get married outside in 70 degree weather but it made for GORGEOUS pictures!!!

My husband, Steve, is an amazing man. He is a believer in Jesus (which is most important), he is loving, hard working, he is selfless in so many ways and he loves me so much which I’m so thankful for. We’ve been on quite an adventure together so far but it’s been one that I wouldn’t want to be on with anyone else.
In 2013, I had my beautiful daughter, Lacy:

She is such a sweet, energetic, happy little girl and God knew we were going to need her. She’s such a blessing and she already has so much love in her heart!
In 2015, I had my sweet little boy, Zachary:

He. Stole. My. Heart. He has been such a blessing to our family with his big love, tons of hugs and kisses every day, and constant smiles! He is so different from Lacy, but they are both so special, unique and incredible! We are SO blessed!
My family is everything to me!
Some of my other passions include my friends that I’ve been blessed with (below are just a few because I can’t find recent pictures of everyone) but first and foremost is my mom. She’s always there for me, always supportive of every crazy dream I’ve ever had and she’s ALWAYS believed in me-even when I didn’t believe in myself. Love her!
Food (I’m a giant foodie and LOVE to cook and bake)…
My MOPS group – because this is my lifeline within motherhood and its the only place you can go and find real people with real feelings who aren’t afraid to be authentic…
And just having fun and making the most of this incredible life that we were given. I’m so excited to be starting this new adventure in blogging with you all and I would be honored if you would join me in this experience! It’s going to be a great day every day on my blog with lots of healthy recipes, makeup tips and tricks, fashion advice and “how-tos”, and encouragement to keep working on ourselves and our fitness journey no matter what stage you’re in! It’s gonna be GOOD!
