Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Rachel!

Bonjour! My name is Rachel. I am 13 going on 14 in a couple of weeks.
My very favourite place to be is outdoors and enjoying God's wonderful Creation that He has blessed us with. I love to sit outside and read my favourite book on a breezy Summer's day, sometimes I sketch or watercolour, and sometimes I just love to admire the perfectly shaped pure white cotton ball clouds. I love reading, though, I haven't read a whole lot of books, but what I have read is fantastic.
I enjoy art. Sketching, watercolouring, penning, you name it, I think it's all wonderful. Mostly I sketch, and for me sketching is sort of a relaxing pill, and also kind of addicting, because once you start you can't stop. That soft scratching of graphite on sketch paper, your creative mind raving with ideas, is such a wonderful thing.
I also love another aspect of art: photography. Photography is fantastic and something I take a huge joy in doing. I take pictures a lot, trying to capture memorable moments, sights, and people.
I have a huge dream to travel to Europe. Mainly Paris...but also London and Rome. They all seem so enchanting and very gorgeous. Someday when I go to England I must go to Tintagel, Cornwall. It is this beautiful little town right along the coast and it seems absolutely breathtaking from the pictures I've seen. And for some reason I have this strong urge to go to Sweden or Denmark. I really have no idea why, just because I guess, but I have always admired the shape they take on the map, and they're in Europe so they must be lovely!
I love taking walks in my woods with my family's dog, Luca. We have a beautiful property at my house, long-stretching fields of corn, luscious grass in our yard perfect for sitting on, and the wonderful woods in our backyard.
I love going to my grandma's house in the Summer. She lives on a lake and we go there and swim, tube, and take lovely evening boat rides on her Pontoon. We go there with all of our cousins, aunts, and uncles. Sometimes we stay the night and stay up until all hours of the night talking around the campfire or in her cosy house. On sunny days the water is completely enchanting, with the dark blue water sparkling like diamonds against the blue sky. It's just something that has and always will stick out in my memory, the brilliant times at the lake, and many more to come.
I really don't know how to end this little thing but, I guess you'll find out more about me through our posts of pictures and things. Hope you enjoy our blog! <3
