I am Rachel!  I am 30 years old, starting a new chapter of my life, becoming a first time mother.  Hopefully becoming “a good mother”.  I am beginning this journey on my actual due date for our first child.
I am a wife to Brent.  We married in June of 2012 after dating each other for 12 years… high school sweethearts.  We grew up in Michigan (just one street apart from each other), lived in Chicago for about 3-4 years and now have been homeowners in Michigan for almost 4 years.
I am currently a pharmacy technician at a local hospital.  But with becoming a mother soon, I play with the idea of becoming a full time stay at home mom.  I have not made any final decisions on that, so follow me through that journey as I make those kinds of decisions.
My hopes for this blog is to become a place of support for mothers, a place I can document my journey throughout life and motherhood, a place I can try to possibly inform moms of my mistakes and greatest achievements and hopefully a place I can just be ME!
One thing I will warn you, I am not a writer!  I do not claim to be.  So forgive me as I have no idea as to what I am doing.  But I wish for you to join me on this journey to figuring it all out.  Figuring out on how to be “a good mother”.
