Welcome to Candles and Cocktails, a blog that celebrates the everyday! katie rachel

I am Katie, an east coast girl now living in San Jose, California. I am the primary voice of our blog. I was born in New York, grew up in Maryland, and attended college in Atlanta, Georgia. I met my husband in Washington, D.C. and we lived there for six years before moving to California.

I write about things that inspire me and focus on seasonal events and holidays. I have always loved entertaining in our home. I love a great party and all the special details that make people smile.  I love my grams, the seasons, snail mail, glitter, wedge heels, all things pink, board games, lobster, travels, and French Macaroons. I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two dogs, family, and dear friends. Join me as we explore our new home in Northern California!

Rachel is the other blog contributor and has her own pet product boutique store, The Plump Poodle, in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. She is super crafty and has a great way of connecting with people. She splits her time between Washington, D.C and Sea Isle City. She is married and has two dogs.

Send us an email! We would love to hear from you.
