My Mom, Rebecca (owner of Rebecca Rae’s) is one to never sit still, and with running a boutique her days are full, non-stop. Here are a few words from her describing what any given week is like:

“A typical week can include: updating inventory on the computer, starting and finishing several items in the shop, talking with consignors, meeting with consignors, meeting with other shop owners, picking through outbuildings and homes for treasures, answering a lot of calls, setting up volunteers to help on the days we are open, spending time with friends, my husband, kids and grandkids and…enjoying a mocha frappe from McDonalds! My hidden vise for being productive! Ha ha! There really is never a day off unless the phone is set aside, the gate at the driveway is closed and the barn is locked. It has to be a conscious decision to set aside a day or two to rejuvenate. From December to April, even though we are closed, we are busy filling custom orders, working on new product and maintaining our place.”


The barn is nearly bursting at the seams with over 2300 square feet of shopping space. SHOP LOCAL this Christmas - you’ll be sure to find something unique for a loved one or friend!

Here’s a MAJOR sneak peek inside the barn . . .


First Family Trip // Ely, Minnesota

Our first family trip is in the books! We loaded what felt like most of Oliver's room into our minivan and took the 4 hour trek up to camp VanVac in Ely. Yeah . . . I haven't publicly declared it, buuut we have owned a minivan for 6 months now. And guys, it's AMAZING.

Anyway, Darin and I learned that vacation with a plus one is a little more work than normal but still well worth it. Oliver is a pretty content little dude as long as you keep his belly full and give him interesting things to look at. He really enjoyed his first dip in a lake with Grammy, lots of Uncle time, and being in his johnny-jump-up (which is worth it's weight in GOLD). Mama here loved her quiet time reading, taking naps, having breakfast with everyone, and the best was playing the most ridiculous adult late night board game that resulted in hearing my father-in-law laugh the hardest I have ever heard him laugh. If you're into board games and don't mind a little bit of raunchy mixed in with your laughter, check this one out.

I didn't document every single moment, but here's a few of my favorites . . . 

I hope you are able to escape this summer to relax a little! 


Blessings to you and yours,
