The Mom, Rachel: A 34 year old deep fried southern belle and aspiring domestic darling. I love to read, cook and play with my kiddos. I am currently obsessed with cookbooks, cooking gadgets, photography and my Canon 50D. I am clumsily trying to figure out Lightroom4 and how it can help me to enhance, but not change my pictures. I’ve been married to my own dented armor wearing prince charming for 11 years and we’re attempting to raise two children with good morals, good manners, open hearts and bright futures.
The Dad, Nathan: 36 years old. A true blue Texas boy. My Prince Charming, Monkey’s favorite playmate and Princess’ measure to which every man will be held.
The Daughter, Princess: 8 going on 16. She is trying, loving, dramatic, sweet and dynamic. She arrived into this world with a ‘Here I Am, The Party May Begin Now’ attitude and hasn’t stopped since. She comes with a disclaimer: “All thoughts and comments expressed by this child are not necessarily those of the parents” She astonishes, astounds and amazes us daily. She is a blessing, a treasure and a test of her parent’s patience.
The Son, Monkey: Is lucky to have lived to the ripe old age of 2 3
4 5. He is a climber and an explorer. He is wild, wacky, exuberant, forceful, sweet, mischievous, adorable and precious. He is a little angel, complete with tarnished halo and cleverly hides his devilishness behind his devastatingly dimpled smile and twinkling eyes.
I blog about food, family, photography, relationships, parenting, recipes, cooking and everything else that is related to being a 30-ish mom in a 20′s obsessed world.
I am open to reviews, as long as honesty is admired.
