I’m Rachel, I am 30 years old. I always used to think 30 was OLD. In fact after I turned 25 I just kept telling everyone I was still 25 for years, it actually got to the point that I forgot how old I really was! I finally turned 30 last fall and I must admit, I enjoy being 30. I feel like I am at the perfect point in my life. I have a wonderful husband and 2 amazing kids.
People always ask me if I work. Well I do actually work outside the house part time decorating cakes, but I am a mom so of course I work! I may not always be away from the home working but I am always cooking, cleaning, bathing kids, grocery shopping, driving to school, the list goes on and on! I wouldn’t change it for the world though!
My family loves to travel which is why I love writing the Family Travel Spotlight section. We are always looking for new and fun places to go. I also have a blast writing Kid’s Kitchen. My kids just love helping mommy cook.
I am adjusting to having a kindergartner. It is so hard getting up and out the door everyday to get him to school on time. Thankfully my little man only goes half days, and that was hard enough on me, I can’t imagine full day school next year! It is amazing how fast time flies!! It reminds me I need to slow down and enjoy my kids before they are out of my house for good. I also have to adjust to a crazy two year old who thinks she is a teen already! I never knew just how hard being a mom was until I became one. But I can’t imagine my life without them either!
I have a short list of hobbies I enjoy, most of my time is spent taking care of my little ones. I get out to scrapbook once a month with fellow moms, other than that I enjoy shopping, who doesn’t? If only we had the money to go with my hobby! Reading and traveling are two of the other things I enjoy.
I anxiously await to see what my future holds in store for me, but for now I will just live in the moment and enjoy the things and people in it.
