About Me


  The last time I wrote this about me section, I was twenty years old and pretty newly married. Not much A LOT has changed since then! I felt the need to rewrite this since I'm in a much better place now.

Hello, my name's Raquel. Some people call me Rocky. Some people call me Kell. Todd calls me babe and Aubrey calls me Mommy. I am many different things to many people, but there are a few things that define me most.

I am wife to the most amazing, selfless, honest, loving husband in the world. I am mother to a sweet, smart, manipulative, little boy. Every decision I make is based upon them, and therefore makeup most of who I am.

I am a writer; of books, of blogs, of lengthy text messages and random, lame adages. I am a reader, which technological advances have made ten times easier. The Kindle app on my phone is always open.

I am often times lazy. Working out seems great on paper, but when it comes to actually doing it, I lack the motivation. I tend to start projects and never finish them. If I could hire someone just to fold my clothes, I would.

I have tattoos and plan on getting more. My hair is hardly ever it's natural color, much to my fraying ends' dismay.
