A Monday Introduction

I don't think I've ever said this before, but I for one am happy it's Monday. It's been a weekend, to say the least. Instead of me spilling my heart today, I just wanted to do something fun and different--a little "introduction" for some of the new faces around here, or maybe even a "reintroduction" for all my loyals!

name // I'm Rachel and I'm 26 years old. 

what you should know about me // I have a thick Southern accent and say "y'all" in almost every sentence. I have a deep obsession with all things Christmas and all things fall. My radio is always set to KLOVE; I rarely ever listen to anything else, but if I do, it's either Celine Dion, Hanson, or Katy Perry. I like to think I'm easy-going, but I'm the opposite--my husband will vouch for that. At first glance, you think I'm a girly girl, but deep down, I love some SEC sports and can watch football or baseball with the best of them. 

loves of life // Jesus. My honey. My family. My sweet friends. My pup. A big glass of wine. A good book. Community. Friends who challenge me. Anything with glitter. 

home // I live in the most quaint little small Southern town, the kind of town people write stories about. We love it here--it has a charm that pulls you in. 

dream job // Interior decorator. Or maybe a writer. I want to write a book one day. 

work // I'm a RN in Labor and Delivery at the local hospital and I love my mamas and babies! My job is crazy and demanding but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I mean come on, I get to help bring babies into the world. I'm blessed to have the job that I have.

other half // I'm married to Andrew (7 months and counting!) but he was my best friend long before I ever knew he was the man I was meant to marry! Our love story is an interesting one, for sure.

favorite food // It depends on the mood you catch me in--some days I'm a sweets girl at heart; others, all I want is something salty. I can never say no to pizza, pasta, a cupcake, or queso dip. 

standard bar order // I'm more of a "bars only on special occasions" kind of girl, so then, I tend to get a martini with a fun name. But my go-to is a glass of Pinot Grigio. 

what I blog about // I blog about my life--DIY projects we've worked on around our house, Pinterest recipes I've tried, excerpts from my journal, and all the little moments in between. I talk a lot about my faith, about marriage, and really, anything that's been on my heart lately. 

why I blog // I'm a creative soul deep down; I long to be writing, painting, building, etc. I started blogging in college as a way to keep up with memories, almost like a scrapbook. With this blog, I didn't want to follow the normal "rules," I wanted to blog for me and for what made me happy. I write about what inspires me. I write when I'm inspired. My desire is that the people who come read my blog would leave this space encouraged and with a little more joy than they came with. This is why I came back to this blogging world.

So girls, tell me a little about yourself? I think we get so caught up in being glued to a computer screen that we forget to get to know the girl behind it. I want to know about you! Happy Monday, xoxo!
