TIME FOR a Q + A

There is so much to appreciate about social media and blogs but one of my favorite things is how it allows you to connect with people you wouldn’t ordinarily know. Yet sometimes the convos feels a little one sided since I’m doing a lot of the talking over here, LOL. So let’s switch things up and pretend like we ran into each other at our favorite crepe and coffee place and in-between cleaning up spills and wrangling children we managed to chat a bit.

In the comments below, feel free to ask me anything — family/work balance, photography, marriage, parenting, having a blended family, faith, style, etc. — I’ll do my best to reply back to your questions today and tomorrow and will also cover any extra fun or repetitive ones on Instagram Live this afternoon at 4pm (PST)! Of course I’ll have to teach dance moves or something instead if you guys don’t ask me anything, so don’t be shy! Ha!

I have a question for you too: when you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?!

Now, ask and answer away!

xo, Rae

WE MADE IT + CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER APPLE DIP RECIPE

Cheeeyeck! We made it though the first full week of back to school and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for FRI-YAYAYAYAYAY! A quick recap of how things have been going… The kids love their teachers and I love hearing all about their day when they get home. The whole concept of having […]

INSTAGRAM LIVE: TOPIC IDEAS

You guys (!!!) this is only the 7th day the kids (or at least some combination of them) have been back in school and I’m already missing them and summer so much! To distract myself and make things interesting around here, I thought it would be fun to do a weekly Instagram Live. The first […]

THE POWER OF POSITIVE

“So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind.” (The Message) Last weekend while on a quick road trip, Johan and I downloaded “How to Win Friends and Influence People” to audibles. Most of you have probably heard of […]

LITTLE BITES: UNICORN CRACKERS

If you have kids, chances are they’ve asked you for a snack all day everyday during the summer. It get’s a little tricky staying inspired while constantly feeding people for those couple months, but with school starting for my kids tomorrow, snack time is about to feel extra special. Having something fun to eat always […]

MOM BOD HEALTH + FITNESS: FIND YOUR FOCUS

Hey loves! I’m excited (and slightly terrified!) to introduce a new blog series today, based on one of the questions I get asked and emailed about most — how I’ve managed to stay in shape after 5 kids? In the past I’ve shied away from answering or responding for a few different reasons. 1. I’m not […]

TINY TOURIST: SCOOTER RIDING IN FREEMONT

This past spring after taking a media training workshop that challenged me to be more present in my work, I started applying the same tools for staying present in my everyday (especially with the kids) and it has honestly changed my life and my relationships. Summertime, for obvious reasons, has brought new challenges to keeping […]
