Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Roots to guide and wings to fly - that's my motto. Bienvenue! I'm Rudey. I'm a writer and an elementary French teacher living in Chicago with my husband and two daughters. My aim is to have fun while slowing down, growing roots, and building a solid foundation. It's also to strengthen our wings and soar. Stop by Rudey's Room and let's connect!
What is your blogging philosophy?
At my roots, I love to share and connect. Discussing life (travel, growth, style, words) revitalizes me. I prefer to delve deep … so if I jump right in, that’s just me being me.

I draw inspiration from many sources – my mom, the Dalai Lama and from what I learned in Kindergarten: Live a balanced life – learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

There isn’t simply a “happiness-now” button, so I use my roots and wings to drive action. My hope is that Rudey’s Room inspires action in the roles of your lives.

My caveat: I am not an expert, a guru or a preacher. We share an existence, an innate oneness, but not a brain. If I sound like a perfectionist or a poser, I misfired. My intention is to write from a mindful place of authenticity. I don’t want to give the false impression that I have it all figured out. I don’t, and I won’t. But I am actively pursuing and applying simple steps to guide my life to be connected, present, and to make an impact.

My husband and I are of the generation that learned to read with Dr. Seuss and Frog and Toad Together. 

It's nostalgic for us that one…


My Favorite Parenting Books

"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though."

-J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Being the book geek that I am, I often turn to the bookshelves for assistance with my parenting questions or problems.  

But which ones are…


My Breastfeeding Story and 4 Tips I Have for You

“When you hold a child to your breast to nurse, the curve of the little head echoes exactly the curve of the breast it suckles, as though this new person truly mirrors the flesh from which it sprang.”

- Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber 

Without as much as a may I? she reached into my v-neck pajama top and cupped my left breast in her mitt-like hand.

I was…

“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”

– Mary Anne Radmacher

To see the moon on the other side of the world, ahhh, it's something ...

I have the travel bug and am forever dreaming of my next, and next, and next trip ... so of course I wanted the girls to get bit at a young age.

It's way I asked my parents to buy them suitcases a few years ago as…
