Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Rachael.


A wife to Darius – the man who stole my heart through endless wine nights, spontaneous dates, tons of belly laughter and never gave up on my persistence that “I didn’t want a boyfriend.” Welp, here we are – three years married and two babies later.

I was an elementary teacher for four years on the border of Baltimore City before deciding my heart was calling me to stay home with our first born, Lincoln.

God has a funny way of making things happen because a year later, I found out I was pregnant again, with a sweet baby girl, diagnosed with Spina Bifida at our twenty week scan.

Life has a way of showing you how it’ll be, because from the end of 2017 through 2018,  there was absolutely no way I could have worked outside of my home. Our family faced a ton of challenges in 2018; physically, spiritually and emotionally. I was absolutely called home for a reason.

Along with our ride with Spina Bifida, our sweet daughter, Emberly, decided to make an extra early appearance at 29 weeks gestation.

But, here we are! I am here to share a little piece of my life and my journey – the journey of my family, my children and my passions – in the most honest, funny, raw way.
