Hello! Welcome to my blog! I’m Rachel and I am so glad that you stopped by!
With Love From Rae is supposed to be like I’m signing the end of a letter to someone. I thought it would be appropriate for my blog. My nickname “Rae” was given to me by my amazing boyfriend of 9 months. Growing up, “Rach” was a common nickname, but I had always wanted something a little different, “cooler” if you will. So whenever my boyfriend(who was my friend when he gave my nickname to me), called me “Lil’ Rae”, it instantly caught on with my other friends and co-workers while I was working at Walt Disney World.
“You worked at Walt Disney World? Did you love it?!” — Yes, I worked at Walt Disney World and yes, I loved it! I completed the 2012 Spring Advantage program as a Merchandise cast member at Disney’s Polynesian Resort! This was my home for seven months:
In December 2011, I graduated from the University of Kentucky with my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Merchandising, Apparel, and Textiles with a minor in Business. I have always loved fashion and I’ve recently gotten into the idea of making a blog based on my style. Post-grad and post-Disney, I am currently working as a bridal consultant(or a Bridal Stylist 😉 at a local boutique. I’ve been here since September and I love when I can help a girl find her dream wedding gown. It’s the most important dress that she will ever wear and I enjoy being a part of that experience.
What other things do I enjoy is a question that you might ask. I LOVE traveling, but I hate being in a long distance relationship. I love how being in an LDR gives me an excuse to travel places(like Chicago), but I am really envious of those couples who have their other half there with them all the time. I also love food and cooking. I watch the Food Network like it’s going out of style. Diners, Drive In’s and Dives is one of my favorite shows at the moment. I would love to travel to try the food at the places that he has been to!
Most importantly though, I am a Christian and I try to improve my relationship with Jesus daily. I know that any blessings, disappointments, struggles, or happiness is because of God and everything in my life is part of His plan. While I can try to say “it’s my way, not yours!”, everything happens for a reason. I am a member at a Baptist Church and since I have moved back home after Florida, I am currently going to the same church that I have since I was a baby.
So as you can see, I love God, my family, my boyfriend, my friends, food, fashion, great music, good movies, traveling, getting dressed up for horse races at Keeneland, being a Kentucky girl, University of Kentucky men’s basketball(& march madness!), birthdays, and all around just living my life to the fullest. Without all of the blessings and life’s challenges I would not be where I am today. I hope that you will follow my blog and get to know me. I know that I look forward to getting to know all of you all!
