Welcome To Rustic Chickadee!

Meet Angela!

Well hello there, and welcome to my page! I’m so grateful that you’ve stopped by!
I know why you’re here – you want to find out the Cole’s notes version of who I am – and I’m happy to share!

For starters, I’m very happily married to my best friend Nico, and we have two tweenage girls. My full time job is Commercial Account Manager, which is the fancy way of saying I help my clients with risk management by being their best Insurance Broker that I can be. I definitely fall into the category of Optimist, Extrovert, and possibly a little Type A. I asked my girls to help out on this description of myself, and they said I’m really fun and happy all the time (that’s a huge compliment since I’m also the one that makes or breaks their plans with friends! 😉 ) They also want you to know that I’m an outdoor person, no matter the season. You’re always going to find me hiking, biking, x-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, you name it. I love trying new things. This upcoming year I will also be on a BMX track! (my girls race BMX competitively, so when in Rome!) I’m happiest when I’m outside – even in the winter! (Maybe especially in the winter – I have more free time!) And of course my family is usually tagging along with me!

As for the purpose of this blog, it’s my creative outlet where I’m going to share pretty much anything that brings me joy. That’s mostly going to be local hiking spots, product reviews, anything mom related, how-to videos. I’m not a professional blogger, or an expert in the DIY field, but I’ve always wanted to start up a lifestyle blog and I’ve finally made it happen!

Thank you so much for joining me on this journey!

Angela van Leeuwen
