life’s little moments

Instead of posting Instagram photos today, here are a few videos of Malcolm as a puppy because 1// I didn’t take many photos this week, 2// It’s Malcolm 2nd birthday! I’m glad this little man has been my sidekick these past couple of years.

Yes, we record videos of our dogs. Cute, furry puppy butts and little barks should always be documented.

Malcolm’s First Video from Postcards from Rachel on Vimeo.

Malcolm wants you to check out some of my wonderful sponsors! And don’t forget about his “Postcards from Malcolm” series on the blog.


Rainstorms and Love Notes

Rainstorms and Love Notes
Why did you start blogging?
I wanted a way to document my life as a newlywed, to help keep track of the memories my husband and I are making together. Over the past couple of years, I’ve developed a real passion for cooking and baking, and I figured that the blog would also be a great outlet for sharing the stuff that I make.

What makes you unique?
I think people enjoy that I have a good mix of different things on my blog. Sometimes, I just write about what’s on my mind, or what we’ve got going on in our life, but I also post 1 or 2 recipes every week to help inspire readers to get in the kitchen and create. Then, every once in a while, I throw in a DIY post, just to keep everyone on their toes :)

With Love, Rachel
Tell us 3 fun facts about you!
1. I took up competitive figure skating from the ages of 12-15. I was chubby and uncoordinated. I guess I wanted to see just how awkward puberty could be?
2. I am terrified of heights. I keep trying to overcome this by trying adventurous things like sky diving, zip lining, and mountain climbing, but so far it hasn’t worked.
3. I love sriracha sauce and put it on just about everything.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
As you read this, I am probably in Africa or on my way there. I have always wanted to go on a safari, and now that dream is coming true!

    Oh. My. God. Malcolm is TOO CUTE! That video made me want to run out and buy a Westie puppy RIGHT THIS SECOND.

    I’m sorry if my puppy enthusiasm is overwhelming. I’ll try to keep it in check.

    Happy Birthday, Malcolm!

    I have so many puppy videos of Harlee and I love looking back at them and seeing just how tiny she was compared to know. Happy 2nd birthday to the little guy!
