A Little About Rachel

Rachel was born and raised in England and did not move to America until later in her childhood. She grew up riding horses and got her own when she was 16. She was always a very fun loving, easy going kind of girl. Her family moved to a smaller town in Northern California, and everything seemed perfect.

But in 2018, it all changed when her mother tragically passed away after battling Cancer for quite some time.

Rachel battled with the idea of her mother being gone, and had to force herself to move forward somehow. She found a creative outlet in writing and decided to start a Blog to talk about her emotions and tell her story.

Her blog impacted the lives of those around her, and she hopes that it can expand to bring forth a conversation that so many of us are scared to have.
