our babies at the lake. <3 #iheartmybabies #familyismyfavorite
hey, y'all.
i'm here dusting off this ol' blog of mine.
on one hand, i didn't mean to take a break this long.
but on the other hand, it was much needed.

once upon a time, i fell in love with this marine that just happened to be a northerner.
well, this southern gal moved up north with him and started a family.
we loved starting our family in ohio.
we made many, many memories there.
and after much deliberation, this past april, we packed up our house and moved to my home state of georgia.

my kids and i spent the first few months of the year in ohio while my husband was here in georgia working at his new job.
it's been quite the transition, but we did it!

i'm proud to say that we moved back to my old stomping grounds.
it feels so good to be back in the south.
i can't wait for my kids to experience growing up here like i did.
and i think it's really awesome that they have experienced growing up a bit in the north just like their daddy.
everyone seems to love it here which makes my heart really, really happy.

we're still trying to get completely settled in, but i'm trying to get back in the swing of things.
i finally sat at my machine for the first time in forever.
man, that felt good.
it was like riding a bike. until i had to use my seam ripper. HA.

in my absence, i've been teaching, working on new designs and even mastered the art of putting in a zipper!
say whaaaaaat?!?! LOL.

what have y'all been up to?

xo, rachel

Pin It!

Welcome back to blogland! I went to school in GA and I sure do miss it down there. There is just something soothing about the south that you just can't find in other places.

Well, darn, you moved away before I got to meet up with you.:(
I hope you'll be happy down in Georgia, and I'm sure the kids will love it, too.
I can't believe how big they are! Didn't you just post pictures of that new baby? :)
nice to see you back, too!

Georgia is a beautiful state. Warmer weather sounds very nice. I'm a Texas girl who now lives in Maine.. Sure miss the weather in the south. Good to be all settled huh ?

Glad that it was a happy "break" from blogging! I am sure you and your family are happy to be "home".
