Rachel Matthews of A Southern Fairytale
- #58 Babble Best
Before you tell us you don’t believe in fairytales, you might want to sneak over and visit Rachel at A Southern Fairytale. But we’d recommend you go on a full stomach, because, you know, reading about jalapeno-stuffed, bacon-wrapped brats and pumpkin cake with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting can make a gal a bit hungry.
