Welcome to my blog.! My name is Rachael, or as I will henceforth be known, The Unapologetic Mom. I am a wife to a wonderful husband, and a mother to a 3 year old girl, a dog, and a cat. I taught for 5 years in the public school system as an orchestra director, and two years ago I became a stay at home mother. I now run a blog, create healthy recipes based on comfort food, devour yoga, meditation, and fitness articles, make crafts, form and share opinions, and forget what I've learned through yoga and meditation and indulge in the occasional rant. Like most people I do the best that I can, and along the way I have learned a lot, developed many interests and opinions, and hopefully can use my voice for positive impact, or at least relate to kindred spirits. On this blog I enjoy a good rant, random information, sharing nutritious recipes based on comfort foods, and prioritizing the needs of one's self because as a person, and especially as a mom, you can't give from an empty cup. I am The Unapologetic Mom, and I am unapologetically me.
