October2014Hey! I’m Rachel, the face behind Of Learning and Nesting. In 2011, during my first pregnancy, I began a little blog on Blogger. At the time, I was feeling inspired by all of the blogs I was reading, and channeled some of my nesting energy there. I dabbled here and there, but it was only a minor hobby.

Of Learning and Nesting has evolved over the years. Now I talk about homeschooling, in addition to natural parenting.

This blog has followed my parenting path, but has only become a serious endeavor as of September 2015, when I purchased the domain.

I have always felt compelled to write. I always thought of it as a distant dream, but it doesn’t have to be.



Learn more random facts about me:

  • I’m a pet owner. Before having kids, I spent my spare time on pet forums and researching the best way to feed our cats and dog. We feed them raw, which is what began us down our path to being as natural as possible.
  • I met my husband online. Actually, on MySpace (remember that?!).
  • I run an Etsy shop, GoodHue Designs. When my first son was turning a year old, I posted a possible invitation design for his birthday in a group I’m in, and suddenly I had other people interested in buying birthday invitations from me. So I opened up an Etsy shop. My shop has grown ever since.

So maybe you’re here because you’re interested in cloth diapers, or homeschooling, or something else entirely.

I would love to hear what brought you by!
