Hello! Welcome! I’m so happy you’re here!
I’m Rachael – an Iowa girl currently living in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, where I share a home with my 3 peeps – my husband and our 2 littles, Henry and Simon.
I’m declaring myself a #boymom loud and proud! And that’s typically what our house is – loud!
Can’t you just hear his little screech?!
I stay home with the littles during the day and typically blog and work on projects during naptime.
But a fun, crazy busy life is what I love most about what we are fortunate enough to have!
In March of 2014, I decided to take the plunge and start a simple blog to share my passion for home decor, interior styling and a few DIY projects here and there. It seems as if the house is always in project mode, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Its a condition/addiction/obsession, however you’d like to classify it!
Some of my very favorite things are…
… blogging, decorating, crafting, pinning, anything in or on a tortilla, all sauces and dips, a little coffee with lots of creamer, red wine [an occasional vodka, soda, splash of cran with a lime], dark chocolate, HGTV, lazy weekends, date nights, traveling to Arizona, gallery walls, primarily neutral colors [my anthem is #blackwhiteandgoldalways], mixing patterns, throw pillows, vintage, modern, bold & ecclectic decor, a clean kitchen, a well-made bed, a bold lip, basically any black clothing [I do love fun, trendy styles, but you better believe that when I say any black clothing, I’m basically referring to the color of the pants of my mom uniform. You all know what I’m talking about.]
I truly hope you’ll hang around here a bit longer, get to know me more, get caught up on some posts [I can’t promise ALL of the oldies are goodies…we all have our early blogging pasts ;)] and sign up to stay up-to-date on everything new going on around our blissful abode.

Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping over!
