In case you’ve forgotten who I am…

Well guys.. I’ve been gone an unacceptably long time. A lot has been changing in my life and the result has been maneuvering priorities and ultimately taking an unexpected, lengthy break from blogging.

The wonderful thing is that the changes have all been good. In the five and a half months that I’ve been gone:

  • I got a new job
  • I started working full time (like a real adult!! :O )
  • I set up health insurance (which has come in handy several times recently)
  • I moved out of my family home into a place of my own
  • I turned 22
  • I made new friends
  • I continued to declutter the my life and feel genuine in calling myself a minimalist

I’m going to do a post on what moving out has shown me about myself in the near future, but for now I want to simply share the joy of my new life.

Here’s my home, a place decorated by God through the generosity of my friends and family. I truly believe He had a hand in every gift and hand-me-down because my place is exactly what I have always dreamed of having and only He could have made that happen without my having to spend a dime.

Home is a studio in an old building with original brick walls and gorgeous windows, hard wood floors and 12 foot ceilings.. I’m so blessed.

Here are some pictures I’ve taken in recent months. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for sharing in my bliss. ♥

I can’t wait to get back to blogging more regularly again and it’s definitely something I’m working towards. I can’t promise consistency right now, but know that I’m thinking of you all and miss sharing my heart and life with you.

In the meantime, why not let me know what you’d like to read next?

  1. All of those topics sound interesting! Congratulations on your new place. I love the pictures and especially the one with the light coming in the window. It must be amazing to have high ceilings and light pouring in. I think your home is beautifully decorated.


  2. So good to see you pop up in my inbox! 😀 There are so many things I’d love to see you write about…letting things and hurt and people go is a top one 🙂 Also I’d love to chat with you about working full time, setting up health insurance, and so many more…these are things I dream of doing but I barely know where to start! I’m also 22, a fellow spoonie…I feel like I know you even though I don’t! Could I email you?

    1. It feels so good to be back, Laina! I’ve missed this- especially interacting with readers. I would absolutely love to receive an email! You can reach me at RachAllene(at)gmail(dot)com night and day.. Well, I may not be awake at night, but you catch my drift. I will make sure to put the letting go topic towards the top of my list! 🙂

      I’d love to hear more about your story as a spoonie if you’re comfortable sharing! I’ve not got it all together, but I’m learning how to get by each and every day and would love to impart any words of wisdom I’ve gleaned along the way that you’re in want of! However, I’m sure you’re doing a much better job than I am! 🙂

      -Rachel xoxo
