Who I Am
I’m Rachel Nordgren…a Jesus-loving, coffee-drinking, simplicity-seeking, belly-laugh-loving, happily-newly-married woman living smack dab in the middle of the country with a super fluffy sweetheart of a dog named Banjo and the cat my husband wanted.
My husband’s name is Hans. Clarification – he’s USA born and raised, his family is just really proud of their Swedish heritage. He follows Jesus, works hard, and loves me fiercely.
Some things you should know…
This blog was created in 2013, with absolutely no purpose in mind. It’s grown into a celebration of living simply in order to focus on what matters most.
I own exactly eight pairs of shoes and one purse.
I also own half a dozen coffee mugs and more books that I should…so, you know. Priorities.
Lemon is one of my favorite scents/flavors.
My heritage includes Italian blood, so I wildly wave my hands/talk loudly. A lot.
Hans is a die-hard Downton Abbey fan because of me 😉
I honestly would love to get to know you better. If you ever need a thing, please do comment or email me! I can’t wait to hear from you!
