Hi I’m Rachel, I’m a mom just like you.

I’m a blogging mom and have one little one thats just around 10 months old.  I want to show you glimpse into my life while raising my son and being a wife. My money saving and productivity tips will help make your life easier!

Lets start off by telling you a little bit about me. I am a new mom to my dear son Parker. Parker was born on July 13th, 2017 at 6:21pm weighing 9lb 1oz and 21inches long. His birth story, I will save for another time. I am married to my high school crush William. We said ” I do” in 2016. I received my Bachelors degree in Marketing, Advertising and PR from Roosevelt University.  In 2013 I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and IBS. Lets just say, my diagnose took me from a whirlwind because being newly 21 and drinking beer did not mix. I studied abroad my last semester of college in London, England where I attended University of Westminster and was able to travel Europe during my stay. If you were to ask my friends anything about me, they would all tell you that I always wanted to be a mommy, and now that I am one, I have never stopped smiling.
