I’m Rochelle Kate Haas, blogger and educator based in the Greater Los Angeles area, specifically the San Gabriel Valley. While I effectively grew up in California, I originated on the East Coast and moved westward on account of my father’s military service- and my mother’s hatred of winter weather. Our cross-country journey gave me a love of travel, especially road-tripping.
Fast forward a few years, I am married with four children, a dog, and a hamster, living in a compact 930-square foot home with huge yards in one of the best neighborhoods in the SGV. We thrive in our 1938 family home by controlling clutter and utilizing cute storage solutions. This blog features some of these tips, along with great hikes and other California spots, travel, recipes, the very occasional fashion post, and what life is like for what can be considered a large family in the Los Angeles area.
I enjoy photography, scrapbooking, reading, and a good hike. When not at home, I love exploring our beautiful country with the husband and kids.
