I am back! As I type this I can’t fully express my emotions. I feel a million different things all at once about being back, but here I am. I greatly appreciate the comments, e-mails and Facebook messages from some of you wanting me back or wishing me well. I have missed so many of you BUT I have enjoyed reading the successes of some of your endeavors on Facebook (New York Fashion Week invited ladies, Instagram or blog growth or Viral posts for some of you) I celebrate with you ladies! You are all killing it and that is AMAZING! I am glad to be back to catching up with some of your posts too.

Aside from the “I am back…” greeting I want to let you all know that for now this blog will begin again with posts on faith, daily life and messages from my husband. I have teamed up with my husband, Chantry, to bring you posts on encouragement, faith and to share what God is doing in our lives. God is daily renewing us, transforming us and showing His goodness.  That is our new mission!

While my blog claims to be fashion and lifestyle orientated there will be several weeks or months of getting the hang of this transition and moving forward. This blog may transition to being more consistent a few days a week, new blog design, etc. Until then we are just grateful to be back and can’t wait to share with you all what is on our hearts. If it wasn’t for my husbands support and passion to want to write I don’t think we would be here, greeting you once more. We look forward to reaching out to you and encouraging you.

If you are lost on why I wanted to quit the blog in the first place than read this post. To see some of our new mission broken down than read the following points:

  • to encourage others in their walks with God, and to love those who may not have a relationship with God just as God loves us all.
  • share our hearts and what God is doing through us
  • share God’s infallible word and what we are learning from it
  • share family life posts
  • occasional collaboration posts (includes fashion blogger collaboration/blogger projects)
  • occasional random posts (traditions, recipes, project)

My husband and I thank you in advance for your patience as we collaborate together on this blog and if you wish to read on certain topics than please give us feedback. We welcome your comments, constructive criticism and questions. However any comments on hate or that could be harmful to our readers will be deleted without being read and will not be responded too. This place is meant to encourage and help you and we thank you for your understanding.

God Bless,

Chantry and Rachel

    Rachel and Chantry, I am so glad you have found the direction you want to take your blog and that is something you are passionate about! I look forward to seeing where your faith takes you and I, of course, always love any post that is uplifting to the spirit. Also, Rachel, you know I love to see what you are wearing, too!

    So happy to read this! I was discussing your decision to regroup/ possible end the blog with my husband last night. I was sad, and I was telling him how supportive your husband is. I’m so glad to see that you will be continuing as a team and in a spiritual sense. I think that is truly your strength and I would love to read more. Thank you for making my day! I’m so excited for you both and wish you much success.

    Finding one’s purpose is a lifelong pursuit for many, and here you are, already on the brink 🙂 I’m really pleased that your voice will continue to be heard, Rachel, and delighted that Chantry is joining you. Opinions and thoughts from the male population are few and far between in our space, and I’m looking forward to reading what the two of you share xoxo
