Hi. I’m Rachel. Rachel Mueller if you’re wondering!

I’m really glad you’re here! If this is your first time to the site, here’s how I recommend we get acquainted:  How “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” Broke My Heart…How to Love Your Single Friends, and Love the Sh*t Out of Someone  are some of my most popular posts. I think you’ll get a sense of who I am from those posts.

I’m in my  late twenties and I currently reside in Colorado. I used to work in the music industry with some pretty amazing people. I also worked at an incredible church and one of the best non-profits in the world.

I never thought I was creative. In fact, I thought I was really good at business. That is, until I went to college and managed to get a business degree. When I needed a tutor for accounting, math, and finance, I should have realized business wasn’t my calling. Instead it took three years and my world falling apart to be able to admit I even liked writing.

This blog began as a way to document my move back to live with my parents and has turned into something completely different. I write primarily about love, life, and Jesus -and often my mishaps in dating. The words you read are born out of my desire to be vulnerable and connect our stories. Rest assured these thoughts are not my diary because there are plenty of things I keep hidden.

I ramble when I get nervous and I make funny faces. I’m super awkward around cute boys and completely comfortable on stage in front of lots of people. I will rarely buy a notebook with lines. Karaoke makes me extremely nervous.

My heart longs for adventures, Africa, rainy days, the ocean, and lots of stamps in my passport. I love words, shiny things, little kids, baking, drinking coffee, and roadtrips. I enjoy a glass of red wine, fall in the midwest, and witty humor.  I’m a secret Bravo junkie. I’m terrified of bridges. I’m an extroverted introvert. I struggle with having a restless spirit and dreams so big I don’t know where to start.

I run ads on this site but do not endorse any of the products. Fair warning!

  2. Hello Rachel…..I am Catherine, also in my late 20s and recently suffered a break up after dating this guy for 3 years…..it wasn’t my first break up but i still was hurt and my heart is/was shattered into tiny pieces. I am at the moment on a journey to rekindle my love for Jesus and my spirituality. I have my good days and then i miss him and i have my bad days. He has moved on and I wish him all the best in his life. Your blog has really given me hope knowing that I am not alone and that I shouldn’t be preoccupied with the clay decoy when the real deal is out there. I can’t wait to meet the person that God made specially for me, but before then I am loving this journey of self discovery and discovering who Christ is in my life.

    Good luck 🙂 and THANK YOU for sharing.

    • Catherine, thank you so much for your note and sharing some of your story. I am so sorry to hear about your breakup. It is the absolute worst. But I’m glad you’ve felt a little less alone in this process and some of my words are helping 🙂

  3. Girl,
    I found an article your wrote (When Believers Break Up) and you are the first person to get what I’ve been going through. I have read so many blogs and articles and nothing seemed to really make a difference. But your vulnerability was so refreshing because I feel so much of the same feelings you wrote about. It makes me feel like I am not crazy. And that someone out there understands. Thanks for writing!
