I'm Rachel, a stay-at-home mom to 2 young kids (Forrest is 4, Darcy is 1) and wife to Jeff (a chiropractor and runner). I'm an avid crocheter, voracious reader, hungry baker, and inexpert DIYer. Here you'll find my crochet projects, favorite recipes, reading lists and book reviews, budget-friendly style, and daily real life at home with the kids (the good, the bad, and the ugly--look elsewhere for angelic mothers and their cherubic children).
You're wondering about the blog name, right? Why is it Maybe Matilda when I'm not a Matilda? I opened my Etsy shop and started this blog during my first pregnancy, before we knew if we'd be having a boy or a girl. While I pondered what to name my new shop and blog, we were also debating baby names. I liked Matilda for a girl. My husband hated it. Really hated it. I figured since I'd never get to use it for a baby, I'd use it here instead. It has caused no shortage of confusion to readers and customers. The bright side? 5 years later, I still love the name Matilda and am not offended in the slightest when readers assume that must be my name. I'll take it!
