About Rebecca

Rebecca serves as Stephanie's assistant here at Keeper of the Home. She grew up in the midwestern United States and at present lives in Colorado with her husband, two kids, and two cats. She has a degree in art history, but is now quite happy to fill the role of stay-at-home-mom with a hobby on the side of photography. Her current obsessions include simplifying her life in whatever way she can and buying some land so she can raise some chickens. Her husband likes the simplifying but isn't so sure about the chickens. She writes at a humble place.
