More About Polly and Rachel

rachel Meet Rachel

My name’s Rachel. I’m a wife and mom of three young kids with a bent toward natural, healthy living. I love learning and talking with others about the topics of just about any health-related topic, cooking and food, parenting, and faith. You can read more about me here.





polly2Meet Polly

Hi there. My name is Polly. I’m a wife and mother of two little ones. I’ve been described as a “high tech grandma” meaning that I enjoy the hobbies of an old lady but have the skills of a techie. I’m embracing the nickname because yes, I love to craft, sew, knit, find new uses for old things, garage sale, bake, and wear slippers. I’m an on-the-go person who loves the outdoors and being creative. You can read more about me here if you’re interested!

*Let us be upfront with you. Our homes are far from perfect. Kid temper tantrums that register on the Richter scale, dinged up walls and stained carpet, and the occasional marital spat mark our homes as much as the next. So, for all the pretty pictures and edited posts you see on our blog, just know that our journey of striving for a thriving home is bumpy at times. We need grace that only comes from Christ, and we have to remind ourselves of that truth every.single.day.
