Rachel is wife to Daniel and mom to an adorable almost-toddler boy. You can find her with a cup of coffee in hand and a book waiting for her to read. Her "to be read" pile is enormous, and she loves to find great deals at McKay's Used Books. She writes about self-care and learning to parent over at her blog (www.alifewithalittle.com) and enjoys window shopping, going to open houses, and spending time on free or cheap adventures with her family. She's always on the lookout for the next free donut day or opportunity to get another book in whatever series she's currently reading!
