Meet the Raffs

Welcome to Our Little World, which consists of our “four-legged fur-child,” Tyson (the Boxer), me, and Tim…and our 2 two-legged children, J Man and Clay.

Mom and Dad survive on each other’s company, our friends, a good beer, essential oils, our love for football. The two little ones survive only because they are just too stinking cute and give great cuddles.

If you want to catch up on us from 2015 back, you can head on over to the old blog.

cropped-raff-easter.jpgHi! I’m Shay. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas with my family. I am a Theater Arts Teacher here locally, DIY craft addict and proud mom of two crazy boys. We’ve been building Our Little World since April 2010. I love painting, reading, playing Candy Crush, researching/learning all things essential oils and have just started learning how to work with vinyl.

IMG_0039.JPGThis is our J Man. He is smart, handsome, hilarious, compassionate. The things that come out of his mouth just keep us laughing all the time. He’s considerate and understands more of this world than I’d like him to at his young, innocent age. He is killer on the soccer field and loves to play baseball. He absolutely adores the TCU Horned Frogs and NOLA Saints.

He has really started to find his personality in this past year and he is definitely keeping us all on our toes. He can be very trying at times, but our lives would not be complete without him. He loves glasses, mommy’s purses and iPhones.

And finally…

Coming soon…Rhey. She will be joining our family April 2018.


So…that’s the gist of Our Little World. The blog actually started in 2008–but I took a two year hiatus and have been truly missing it. So, I decided to rebuild the blog and get back to sharing our crazy adventures with family, friends, and anyone that wants to stop by to visit.
