About Me


My name is Rachel and I like to dabble into just about everything!  I am very fortunate to have a loving husband and two amazing kiddos!  My husband, AKA WiseOne doesn’t always agree with all my new adventures that I come up with, but he is a good sport about them!  My son, AKA CadenTheGreat usually isn’t to interested in my adventures, but after a little bit of time he usually comes around, he definitely takes after his father the WiseOne!  My daughter, MiniMe is always interested in my adventures and usually comes up with her own while accompanying me on mine!  By the way, she so takes after me!! : )

So, what are these adventures I talk about?  Well, if you name it I have probably done it, thinking about doing it or have researched it and figured out it wasn’t for me!  My plans for this site, is to share these adventure stories with you along with telling you all about my daily life! I hope you enjoy the site and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you!


Here are a couple extra things about me and my life:

1. My hometown I grew up in is a very small town with a population of around 1200 people!  My graduating class in 1995 had 38 students!  I knew from a very early age that I had to leave this little town and go to the city!! : )

2. I served in the United States Air Force for 4 years.  This was my ticket out of my small town. I joined to see the world and the military stationed me 5 hours away from my hometown!  So, much for seeing the world!  However, I met my husband (he was not in the military, btw) in this new place that the Air Force sent me so I always say it was fate that I was sent here!

3. After being honorably discharged from the military, getting a house, getting married and everything else that comes from settling down, my husband and I decided to have kids. However I was crushed after 3 years of actively trying when the doctors told me I would not be able to have kids without fertility treatment. That day was the turning point in my life, I accepted that if God wanted me to have a child then I would have one without fertility treatments. So, then I officially became what other people call me a hippie!

4. In 2005 I got pregnant with my first child because of doing tons of research on alternative ways to get pregnant. Still to this day I will find home remedies or alternative medicines to heal my family before rushing off to see a traditional doctor.  My research taught me that child birth was not supposed to be the way the movies portrayed it to be. I believed everything I read and knew that I could have a beautiful home water birth without the need for a doctor. And I was right, I did just that and it was one of the best moments in my life!

5. I had my second baby exactly to the day 18 months after my first one!  When my first baby was 2 I had this crazy idea that I wanted to homeschool my kiddos.  I talked about it often and got mixed reviews from everyone, but started doing my own research about it.  After 3 years of research, my husband and I decided it was the best fit for our family for me to homeschool our kiddos.  So, in 2011 our family started the homeschool adventure and have never looked back!

6. Since we started our homeschool journey, I started reading a lot of blogs.  This is how I got into wanting to blog. I have so much to say and if all these other wonderful people out there were blogging, then I could to. So, where did I start? I decided to attend a blogging conference, BlissDom.  Thanks to going to this conference so many doors have opened for me and I’m so excited, actually thrilled to be starting this next chapter in my life!  I hope you will join me on this next chapter, which is the blogging adventure!  Thank you for stopping by!
