Auntie Rachel

As you may have gathered from my last post, I’m an AUNTIE!  Auntie Rachel.  I’ve never been an Auntie before.  Although, I am happy to report I have several lovely Aunties as examples.   So I know what is required of Aunties from day one.  Pictures.  Lots and lots of pictures.  Snacks.  Treats.  Homemade rolls.  Sleepover’s. …
