Hi there. My name's Rachel. I like creative, pretty things and therefore was attracted to tumblr. I like to think of this as a scrapbook of things that I love. I like to drink tea and read books. But don't be fooled, I enjoy coffee too. I'm a follower of Jesus, and the oldest child of four. 19 years young. I love animals. I long to travel. I love music. Into British things. I may be the only one who reads this blog but I feel alright with that.

"Picture yourself when you were five. In fact, dig out a photo of little you at that time and tape it to your mirror. How would you treat her, love her, feed her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. When tantrums or meltdowns turned her into a poltergeist, you’d demand a loving time-out in the naughty chair. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self."

OH I just want to be camping. Like right now. With my nana and my dad making breakfast over the fire. Sigh.
