I’m Rachel; wife to Ryan, and Mama to Gabe! Our family lives in middle Tennessee and I’m a stay at home mom. I’m a little old fashioned and believe that simplicity is the essence of happiness! I try to be intentional with everything in my life, from what goes in and on my body, to what I have, and how I spend my time. It’s easy to become easily overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of daily life so I try to live slowly and take sweet pleasure in the little things!
I started this blog as an outlet to share my from-scratch recipes and DIY natural remedy concoctions, but it has evolved to become more; A place for me to share little pieces of my life, my faith, adventures in parenting, and my often unconventional way of doing things. 😉 I’m a classic INFJ personality (I recently discovered!) so I like to question everything, go against social norms, and am really passionate about all my interests, so my blog has a little bit of them all!
I’m also in love with homebirth stories ever since I started planning my own, and I’m working on building up a little collection of them here for mamas who are interested in this path! I hope these positive birth stories will inspire and empower other moms to not fear birth and to face it with confidence and peace. Positive birth stories definitely helped me so much when I was pregnant so I hope they will help others as well. If you’ve had a homebirth and would like to share your story, please contact me about doing a feature!
