Hello, I'm Rachel! I'm a first time mom who lives in Raymond with my husband Anthony, my mini-me son Harvey, our two crazy cats, and our curious dog. We have a full household! I grew up on the NH Seacoast and spent many of those days hanging out at the beach, running around downtown Portsmouth with friends, or hiking and exploring the coast. I work full time currently as a retail manager, which is where I met my husband. In my free time I continue on my quest to find the best cup of coffee. I've found a few runner-ups, but still can't commit to a number one favorite yet. I love to cook, and spend countless hours searching Pinterest and scouring the internet to search for the perfect meal to cook for my family. I'm so excited to meet other moms as I begin this blogging journey! Follow me on Instagram @bumbling.mama
