About Me

Hi!  I'm Rachel.  Four years ago, after a life of travel, multiple degrees, terrible choices in men and lots of adventures, I finally found and married my soul-mate.  Up until that point, I wasn't sure that mothering was for me.  Despite my relative success in school and various work endeavors, I had a fairly hard time even mothering myself.  Adulting never came naturally to me and I always envied those who seemed to know how to pay bills on time, keep organized closets and take their cars in for regular maintenance.

Marrying my best friend changed all that.  Something about all that love made me want to create more love, more intimacy, more family.  So we began. This blog is a recounting of my journey to motherhood: the good, the bad, the difficult choices we had to make, and the unexpected miracles along the way. I'm sharing this in the hopes that if you are going through a similar journey or you know someone who is, that my story can serve to help comfort and educate you along the way. I'd love to answer questions or chat so feel free to email me at rachel@twodanesandababy.com!
