Solo Feature: Girl Willow


1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Hello everyone! My name is Rachael and I blog over at Girl Willow. I am married to one very handsome guy and together, we have 2 young boys. Yes, I'm surrounded by lots of dirt and noise and rough housing, but I love it! My faith and my family are very important to me. I'm really just a girl trying to find joy in everyday life...you can find out more about me here.

2. What made you decide to start blogging? Well, I guess I just needed a creative//girly outlet, due to all the dirt and noise I spoke of above! I really enjoy writing and I love the connection and relationships that you can build without even meeting someone in person. 


3. What are your favorite things to blog about? Favorite posts? I love sharing about the sewing challenge that I am in the midst of. I am sewing all of my own clothes for an entire year!! I also love blogging about my sweet little family and our adventures.



4. What is your favorite pass-time? That seems like such an easy question, but for a long time after having my first son, I really didn't make time for activities and such that I enjoy. I now really enjoy blogging (I'm still a newbie though) and sewing has become a slight addiction for me! I am blessed to have my mom as my sewing "teacher" and I am learning so much.


5. What is on your current wish-list? 
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5
6. Favorite blog reads? Oh, I have so many fans!! Here are just a few of the many: Enjoy the Small Things, Moms are for Everyone!, Made, Kendi Everyday, Smile & Wave & MaieDae - I can't wait until I can have her makeover my blog!


7. If you had three wishes what would they be? I am always so terrible at this question!! All we need is LOVE, right?!


8. Favorite summertime song? Any song that my husband and my boys are playing together. My husband sings and plays guitar and every.single.time he gets out his guitar, our boys have to get out their little guitars and play along. I love that!


9. What's your favorite meal? Hmm, I love pretty much anything Italian! Pizza, spaghetti, etc. I know, I know! I could eat it all the time, but I don't let myself.


10. What inspires you the most? My faith and my family are definitely my biggest inspirations. I also greatly appreciate some of the blogs that I have the privilege of reading. Women sharing their stories on motherhood, marriage, faith, sewing, crafting...that inspires me too.
