|NAME: Rachel Schultz (surprise!)
BIRTHPLACE: Nashville, TN
DAY JOB: This blog (mostly) & freelance writing (sometimes)
|I would describe myself as simple, yet quirky. I’m married as of May 2012 to my husband, David (or “Dave” if you’re feeling crazy). We live a (also simple, yet quirky) life in Michigan.
Two more words to describe me are domestic and proud. The first way to read that is in the sense that I am domestic and have a prideful, sinful heart. Which would be true. What can I say about Jesus? He is everything. I used to be dead and now I am alive.The second way you could read “domestic and proud” would be that I am not ashamed to love domestic, housewife-y things. Which is also the case!
It is a life well spent to be a good and kind wife. I want to work hard to make my home beautiful, to be a hospitable family, where people can stop by and feel loved. Simple pleasures like lighting a nice-smelling candle, or making good food, or sitting with a soft pillow over conversation gives people a glimpse of the sweetness of the goodness of God. In a paragraph, that is what my blog and life are about.
5 FUN FACTS
But my very FAVORITE way to be contacted is in the comments section. I’m very active in the comments and I’ll almost definitely respond.
What is your favorite thing you’ve ever made? I get this one a ton (as does David!). My three favorites (right now) are: roasted strawberry & chocolate grilled brie, black bean & spinach chicken enchiladas, and chocolate zucchini bread. David’s three faves are: whipped feta crostini, cheesy stuffed meatball sliders, and feta & spinach mini pastries.
How can I print a recipe (without photos or comments)? There’s a print box at bottom of every recipe post. I’ve also added a “Pin it” and other social media buttons on the left and bottom of individual posts’ pages.
What are your tips for beginning bloggers/blogging for a living? I wrote a whole post about this here.
Do you take all the photos on your website? I do! I’d love to continue to get better at photography. Up until December 3, 2012, I used a point and shoot Nikon Coolpix P500. Now, I have a Nikon D5100.
