Glitter & Engine Grease

Journeying through Mommyhood one moment at a time!

A Brand New Adventure

Hello  world! After several years of wanting to start a blog, I’ve finally done it! Through blogging I am not only fulfilling a dream of mine, but am also looking forward to sharing my adventures, ideas and projects with all of you.

So let me start by introducing myself. I’m Rachel, a country wife living in central Pennsylvania. I’ve been married to my husband Dale since 2013. Together we are parents to Summer (our yellow lab), Mia (our guinea pig), and three glofish(who have not been named yet.) We live in a three-bedroom, one bathroom ranch style house which was built by my grandfather in the  late 1950’s.

Our life is one full of opposites. I enjoy baking, cooking, decorating, gardening, and experimenting with DIY projects, while Dale is happiest working on vehicles, researching vehicles and watching shows about them. Our wedding was a mixture of glittery jewelry, burlap and camouflage which represented both of our personalities well. When you walk into my house it is not uncommon to see car parts on my table and car magazines mixed in with my coupons and recipe printouts. Despite our differences though we realized very early on that we complete each other…I bring the glitter and he brings the grease.

I am so excited to start my blogging adventure with you.

I’d love it if you’d join me, grab a cup of tea, and settle in with me  for this brand new adventure !
