You may also want to visit my first blog:
I am in the process of transferring it to this web address as of June 2017.
It’s still me.
Loving you, my faithful readers.
In 2007, my niece Karla, who has had a blog for like 14 years
or 100 maybe,
told me I needed a blog.
She set one up and sent me the message it was ready
and said, “Now blog!”
“It will be fun!” she said.
Well, or something like that.
At first I had a blog and a blog “boutique” where I sold stuff.
But life happened,
and blogging evolved,
and the design side of our business continued to grow
and people kept asking me for business cards
and pictures of my work
and I knew I needed to update my “online presence”.
Karla who is extremely efficient, has been so busy,
and I have fumbled bumbled along,
and tried to not bother her TOO much
trying to create something new that speaks
to where life finds our family and our businesses today.
In 2014, one of our sons traveled to Swaziland
and found another daughter for us to love.
She attends the same university that he did.
As a marketing major, she soon realized that
I could use help and she asked to use our
design business as her Senior Project.
So, I’ve been blessed with her help
and she’s brought fresh eyes
to the blog and website and online presence.
How could I be so fortunate?
A niece that said, “Here, now do this!”
And a future daughter, that said, “Oh yes, you can, and here’s how!”
So, today is kind of a milestone,
a blog anniversary of when I put my first post out there.
January 1, 2008.
I was encouraged by so many of you
to post that first post
and to just keep putting the words out there.
I never dreamed the opportunities that would
come about from this little tiny sphere.
I’m truly truly truly grateful to all of you who read,
on and on
and encourage me
and you send me feedback.
Thank you so very much.
And I send thanks galore and bushels running over of gratitude
to Karla and Alyssa
for getting me to where I am today
with this blog/web adventure.
So yeah, the look has changed.
As we go along,
I will be adding more features for the ones
who come to me for design assistance.
But for the most part it’s still just gonna be me,
chatting about the random thoughts that swirl around in my head
and need a place to land.
And just me, Rachel, reminding myself and you too,
to live each day to the fullest,
to love deeply,
to worship sincerely,
and breath freely.
every person, every choice, every thought, every word. every action
it ALL matters.
And you matter to me.
