I’m Rachelle and the creator of Sea to Sea with Love. I am a Navy wife and stay at home mom to three beautiful little blessings!
After being a Navy Wife for 8 years, I was finally faced with my first deployment.
I spent months learning all I could about deployment life and prepared myself, my family, and my home the best I could before my hubby left.
One thing I didn’t prepare was my care packages! I knew going into the deployment I would need to send the first care package out pretty quickly since mail can take a long time to get our service members but a week after my hubby left, I was scrambling to come up with a theme for the box and to fill it up with goodies.
Although the first care package was super rushed, I quickly learned that I loved creating cute and fun boxes for my hubby to open. I knew they would brighten his day and he would get a kick out of the silly sayings.
After hearing from so many other military wives that they wished they were creative enough to make a decorated care package, I knew I wanted to step in and help them out. Whether it by taking the guess work out of creating a theme or saving them time in the assembling process, I knew by creating pre-made care package flaps I would be helping military wives out in an already stressful time.
From there, Sea to Sea with Love was born!
A little about me:
You can find me cruising the streets of San Diego in my super sweet minivan (never thought I would drive a minivan but its AWESOME!) either dropping kids off at school, picking them up from school, chauffeuring my oldest to her dance classes and dance competitions, or heading to the nearest fast food drive thru (because I’m a fast food junky and life sometimes doesn’t give me time to cook! HA!).
I love to be organized and create lists for EVERYTHING! Printables are my best friend! (Be sure to check out all of my FREE Printables!)Teal is my absolute favorite color-you should see my living room! I love everything sparkly-more rhinestones the better! I grew up as a dancer and even performed professionally in a theater in Pigeon Forge, TN. Mexican food is my guilty pleasure and will never turn down anything chocolate (expect chocolate cake!).
