Hi! My name is Rachel. I love pretty things and parties. I'm married to a wonderful guy and we live in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois with our little kitty, Penny. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Art Education and I have dreams of opening up a candy shop in our small town. I want to own a store that people remember and brings a smile to people's faces. In my spare time I create pretty little crafts, put together candy buffets and spend time with family and friends and try to document life on this little blog. <3 Thanks for hanging out!
