I’m Raquel, mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 6) and the adorable Cooper (almost 2). As a SAHM to a kindergartener and a busy toddler (& wife to Tyson aka ‘Sarge’), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately. I have so many interests & hobbies that I don’t consider myself ‘expert’ at any of them. It can be frustrating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies this momma currently enjoys! When considering some of my favorite hobbies – i’ve discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but ‘green practices’. I often find myself thinking, ‘how can I make this more environmentally friendly?’ and ‘what ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live?’ I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
