boy meets girl. girl falls head over heels. there was a proposal. a wedding and a home. then came a baby. our little family of three. this is the beautiful struggle of our happily ever after…
welcome! i’m raquel. sometimes i go by rachel. same name. different language.
i’m an FIT graduate. part art director, part graphic designer. horrible at math (and why art school worked in my favor). creative thinker. spanish speaker. vintage admirer. a coffee drinker (light and sweet please!). proud wife to a rockstar photographer. sorta-crunchy, attachment parent and doting stay-at-home mommy to little ‘izzie’. a gentle spirit. believer that sometimes less is really more. thift-shopper. daydreamer. bad at team sports (anything athletic, actually). foodie. decorating addict. woman of faith. Mac/iphone user. wanna-be-fashionista (ok I try. sometimes). always up for a good laugh but not afraid to cry.
perhaps you know me personally or heard about me. it’s possible we’ve even crossed paths. I’ve often been told I have a familiar face. i would be so perplexed whenever someone would say “have we met?”, do you work at this place or the other?”, ”did you go to such and such high school?” or “is your brother so and so?” i’ve lost count how many times i’ve smiled, nodded my head and responded with a “no”. recently I’ve come to accept it as a true compliment. it probably means i’m very approachable. i certainly hope you agree and can relate to my aspirations, fears and challenges.
i look forward to your comments! feel free to contact me.
