My name is Rachel and I am an optimist! I live in the beautiful Annapolis Valley, located in Nova Scotia, Canada, and if you ever have a chance to visit this place, you won’t be disappointed. Here’s a look at one view of the Annapolis Valley! It is breathtaking no matter what season.
I have two beautiful daughters, 11 and 5. They are my world, my loves, my number ones! I have a hard time remembering what life was like before kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love to write about things that inspire me to be happy, creative, active and healthy. I hope I can inspire you to find ways to bring happiness into your life, too.
Aside from being a mom and a wife, I also teach grade 8 English, Social Studies and Art, currently in a job-share position. Since I only work 40% of the time, I get to spend the rest of my week home with my youngest daughter, Olivia. I am ever-grateful for having been able to stay home part time with both the girls during their preschool years. It’s been the best of both worlds, teaching and being a stay-at-home mom. Life is all about balance and this is a balance that has worked perfectly for our family so far.
Oh! How could I forget? I like to laugh! I’m always looking for more laughter in my life. Although life can take its serious turns, I try to add humor wherever I can! You know what they say: “If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.” That’s kinda why I decided to create this site, really, to help others get their happy on! So, if you are positive, enjoy happiness and like to get your laugh on, then I’m happy to have you join the journey! If you’re not any of those things listed above, but happen to be looking for a few more smiles in your life, then I hope you’ll find them as you join the journey, too!
Remember: Life is what you make it. Take lots of pictures.
See you on the inside.
