When I used to work in a professional setting and I would contact a new person about a project, my e-mails would usually start with, Hi, my name is Rachel Watson and I work at [insert place of employment here] as an [insert title here], I'm working on... [launch into e-mail about very exciting venture...]. So as I introduce myself to you, I want to fall back into that pattern, but these days, I don't really have a title (does mom count?) and I work within the walls of my house (and I'm not telling the web where that is). So, now onto my exciting venture... wait for it... this blog. I hope that wasn't too anticlimactic. So... what about this blog? So...What about me?

Well, my angle is, I'm an average doe, trying to live a happy life. I am pretty personal, so I'm not going to be sharing all the ugly moments of my life with you, but when I share a beautiful one, I will try to surround it with reality. For example, my bio (beautiful moment that it is)--I have spent way too much time on it. I somehow lost the version that I made some really great edits to last night, and so this is a different take on that.

Oh, and wasn't this supposed to be a bio or something? Quickly... I married my high school sweetheart, we lived in the student village at the University of Utah, and I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! I attended the University of Utah and graduated in broadcast journalism. Upon graduation, I worked at a local PBS station (KUED) editing video, writing and doing production. In 2007 my husband and I up and moved to Washington, DC, where I worked for the George Washington University as a Web editor and writer. At the end of 2009 we welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world, and I have stayed home ever since. I have wanted to be a stay at home mom since I was six. It really is my dream job--not that it doesn't come with its ups and downs. I think the hardest thing about being a mom is that I am my own boss. I'd prefer to have someone telling me what to do and keeping tabs on me. What can I say, I am motivated by external forces--I am trying to work on that btw.

I like to lie on my stomach with my feet way too close to the space heater. I am a great listener, I love to give advice, I love people and making new friends, I try to be inclusive and I put a lot of effort into being an organized person. Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me! I hope you enjoy this blog.

    1. Do you feel like you are getting any better? I think I am, but... I've started a new thing where I set my timer for 15 minutes right after dinner is finished and I clean my little heart out.
