{we'd be besties | q&a with holland's reverie}

Have you ever had that moment when you find a blogger... you love their blog... and you just know that you'd be besties if you didn't live 1,000 miles apart?
That is exactly how I felt when I ran across Chelsea from Holland's Reverie.
She is totally down to earth, super dedicated and just happens to be gorgeous!
Her content is great, her pictures are fabulous... what I'm saying is you should just click below to follow her on bloglovin'!
And if you want more proof, go ahead and read the little q&a I did with her below.

Firstly- let's start off with your lovely blog. What inspired you to begin your blog?

Well, I had been reading a few blogs faithfully for a year or so, and something about it just kept calling to me.  I had been searching for something that would be mine, a place I could be creative and blogging seemed the perfect fit. It's rife with the unknown and endless possibilities,  it would give me an opportunity to work on my photography and force me to actually edit the photos, while providing motivation to record and document this- the most beautiful of times. So after dreaming about it, and procrastinating for a whole host of reasons, one day I just jumped and went all in.


The name of your blog is Holland's Reverie. Why did you choose that name?

Holland is my middle name and my daughters middle name, and I kind of love it. Reverie describes my writing style- it's very whimsical and romantic, and also me- I'm a dreamer, always. It means a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts, a daydreamer.

I love your story about what you guys do for a living. . . could you share a little of that with my lovely readers?

Thanks. About four years ago my husband and I had just had enough. He was working at an outdoor adventure rehab for boys. The job was mentally taxing and he was gone so much. Our little bugs, hardly knew him and he was so unhappy with the situation. His dream as a kid, as strange as this is, was to be a husband and father. So we made a pretty bold leap, he quit his job and we decided to take up farming. It has such a huge learning curve but we have been weathering the ups and downs and enjoying every minute of it. It's been the best decision we have ever made because we are literally living out our dreams and raising our family together.


Looks like you nabbed a mighty fine man. Tell me more about your journey.

Oh yes, he is so dreamy! Crazy as this is, we have nearly been married for ten years! It just keeps getting better and better. With our four little wild ones I feel like we have found what we always dreamt of. Our little life is filled with adventure and uncertainty in all the best possible ways.

Your little ones are…so SO cute. What is your favorite part of being a mommy?

Thanks, I think so! Those little crazies are the light of my life, I love them so. A favorite part is tricky- maybe all the cooking and cleaning- ha just kidding! I love the smooches and snuggles, I love the little quiet moments together, I love watching them grow and change and figure out who they are, it's the ultimate adrenal rush being a parent and it is wholly incredible.


When you are not blogging, what other things do you like to do?

Well, if I'm totally honest- I'm pretty maxed out. This blogging thing is a lot more labor intensive then I thought, so to fit it in I must rise early and stay up late. In between, two of my littles are school age and we homeschool so that is fun, but keeps me quite busy. If I were to ever get a moment to myself- I love to read, it is far and away my favorite thing to do

Share some of your favorite posts with us and tell us why they're your fav.

I love this post titled Specifics. It was really one of the first posts I ever wrote, and to me it captured the reason I wanted to blog, to remember these moments and make note of them for myself. I also loved this post, it was my first post to open up and really be vulnerable, and I was so nervous about it, but everyone was so kind and encouraging. Accidental Magic is a post that makes me happy, I love going back and reading it, it takes me right back in that moment and I can relive it all again. A walk thru the woods has lovely pictures and the farm was looking so cozy in all it's green glory.  I love Where it all began because it just brought with it so many memories and we made some new ones and I cherish seeing it all come full circle.
