About Me

Hello! I’m Sami Rae. A fiance to the most wonderful man and a new momma to Amelia.

I am a special education school social worker by day. A job that I love, but a job that usually causes me to drink a glass of wine (or two) on the couch each night, next to my beloved cat, Stella.

In my spare time, I can usually be found wandering aimlessly down the aisles of Target, scrolling through my Instagram feed, or watching some sort of documentary on Netflix.

This blog is a mash up of motherhood, lifestyle and all things real.

* Why Rae of Sunshine? For starters, my middle name is Rae and I’ve always believed that in the darkness of life, there is always a bright spot…a positive spin on things, a certain person, place or thing that brings you happiness. Let’s be honest….life truly isn’t always easy. Beautiful? Yes. But easy? No. I’ve always looked for that “Rae of Sunshine” during my hardships. And I strive to be that person that brightens people’s lives or brings others happiness or clarity. My “Rae of Sunshine” is my daughter. She brightens my everyday and is my pride and joy!

I hope to leave you feeling inspired, encouraged or both
