Coming soon ... What Rebecca Thinks
Welcome to What Rebecca Thinks, a newsletter covering books, meal prep, fitness and parenting; with a bit of spice and sass.
Hi. I’m Rebecca. I love books. I wouldn't say I like cooking, but I’ve come to find a way for it to work for me. I enjoy working out, and I love my family. I’m also sassy and outspoken. Generally, I think I’m a lot of fun — and I bet we will get along swimmingly.
Here are the basics:
I’m a wife and mother of three kids. I’ve lived in many places but am very happy not to be moving any time soon. I’m an enneagram 8, which explains why I get so passionate about other people being treated unfairly.
I read a lot of books, like a lot, mostly historical fiction, but lately, I’ve gotten into psychological thrillers. I’m a sucker for a reading challenge, and I adore a good reading bingo. This photo was me in a used book store in Stratford-on-Avon this summer.
Among my favorite authors are Kate Quinn and Ruth Ware. I also enjoy watching World War II movies, TV shows and foreign historical fiction films. I love royal-watching, especially through the lens of Elizabeth Holmes over at. No one has ever made me interested in fashion the way she has.
I love working out with my husband in our garage gym. We like to lift heavy weights (well, not so heavy this week, it’s been a while). I’m a frequent rider of the bike-that-goes-nowhere and am approaching my 300th ride on my Peloton. (I’m #squatlikeamom if you want to follow.)
My instant pot and my big freezer are my best cooking tools. I meal prep all the time and am famous for pulling something, generally unlabeled, out of the freezer and declaring it’s for dinner.
My favorite nickname is “Mom.” I’m so lucky to be the mom of these incredible kids. I'll admit, I went into this school year less than excited about having one in high school, one in middle school and one in first grade. But they are quite wonderful, and I’m very proud of them.
Here is what you can expect from me:
I intend to write weekly, sharing something marvelous that I’ve read, a situation where my parenting is worthy of reporting or something equally fun and exciting that happened in my life.
If any of this sounds remotely interesting, amusing or perhaps helpful, please subscribe to my newsletter. I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
