Hi, we are Jacob and Rachel Smith.
This blog is a chance for us to stay close and communicate with people we love, and to meet new people that we can learn from and share with.
We got married in December of 2010 in Kansas City, MO. Then in March of 2011 we moved to Mansfield, MO to be innkeepers at the Weaver Inn Bed & Breakfast. After a few months we realized it was time for us to move on. Jacob’s family was near and we felt like we should really take advantage of the opportunity to spend some quality time with them. Luckily, his family felt the same and were generous enough to let us stay in Grandpa’s old house. For now we’re enjoying our time with his family and the beautiful view.
Rachel is originally from Kansas City MO, but moved with her family as a kid to New Mexico, then Phoenix. She moved back to KC in 2009 where she met Jacob. Rachel is the writer in the family and spell/grammar checks everything Jacob wrights. Rachel also loves to bake, which is apparent by Jacob’s steady weight gain. She also loves staying up late and talking, especially when Jacob has just dozed off…
Jacob grew up in Mountain Grove MO, moved to Kansas City in 2005 and tried to figure out what he wanted to do. From college to owning a small remodeling company and then a restaurant to serving in AmeriCorps and making coffee part-time (his favorite), he found out that life ended up being the best – and most expensive – way to learn. While making coffee at one of KC’s best shops, Benetti’s, he met Rachel. Jacob likes to fix things, or at least tinker. He wishes he was outside pretty much all of the time and loves road trips. He misspells things on purpose now, and is way too energetic in the mornings for Rachel…
Together we are living life the best that we know how, by disregarding preconceived ideas of what success is and how we are supposed to act. We are following God and learning to love Him and each other more every day.
Thanks for visiting
