About~The~Maiden

...Buon Giorno, Hello, Guten Tag, Bonjour, Shalom, Hola...

My name is Chloe...I guess I'll start from the beginning.....

One snowy day over 16 years ago I was born at home to an overjoyed Father and a very relieved Mother. I am the first child of 3... I have a sister (Leah) and a brother (Elijah). When I was about 4 years old my Father passed on to heaven, leaving my Mother a widow. It's been a wonderful opportunity seeing how God really does care for the orphans and the widows. He is always there, even if it doesn't seem so. At the age of 13 I gave my life to the Lord, and my greatest desire is to learn more about Him!! My amazing mother home-schools me and my siblings, I am in 10nth grade and do Abeka Video School, I love being home-schooled...its the best ever!! I was born and raised in America for my first 12 years. Ever since I can remember we've been moving from one house to another every 3 years or less..in 2011 we moved to Switzerland where some of my relatives live. It was a very good experience, and it was there that i learned German, and the limited amount of French that I speak. I also speak Italian since it's the only language my Grandmother knows who lives in Italy. I love visiting Italy, it is so unique, and interesting!! About 5 months ago my family and I took a trip to Israel for almost 3 months. It was the most amazing experience ever...I made absolutely awesome friends, and just being there and living in the culture for a couple months was so neat!! I'm glad that you found my blog, and I hope you decide to stay around a bit!!

Facts About Me:


  • I am home-schooled
  • I wear skirts 99.9% of the time

  • Hanging out with friends is a favorite hobby
  • I enjoy sewing (occasionally)
  • I enjoy cooking
  • I LOVE babies and toddlers
  • I am a Christian, I am a sinner saved by the wonderful Grace of God!!!

    1. That's so neat that you're missionaries...I've always dreamed of being a missionary. No, we live in the Southern United States :) You should visit Switzerland sometime...it's very picturesque and...COLD (in the winter that is :)

  3. Ok so I had no idea you've traveled so much! I've always wanted to go and visit a bunch of foreign countries(in Asia mainly). Thats cool that you have family in other countries! That awesome that you can speak or know some of all those languages!!! I was wondering what language is spoken in Switzerland?

    1. :) German...but it's a dialect of German...called Swiss German. And people ask if it sounds different...YES it does!! People from Germany can hardly understand people from Switzerland...it's pretty much two languages (almost :)
      I've always wanted to 'explore' Asia.....Hopefully someday i'll be able to :)

  6. Hallo! Mur geht es dir, danke! Thank you so much for the comment on my blog - that brightened my day. :) And I loved that you used German - very cool. I know only a few of the greetings (hello, how are you, I'm good, etc.), but I love all languages. Anyway, I will not start talking about that, because I might not stop. ;) Just kidding.
    I think that is amazing that you've traveled so much; I'm sure it is an adventure. I've yet to leave the US, but I know someday that time will come. :) I am also encouraged to hear that you trust so fully in Christ. That is always a blessing to hear. :)
    Yep, I was homeschooled all of my school-years, and I agree - it is the best. I am so thankful for being homeschooled! :)
    Thank you again for your comments - I'd love to get to know you more. :)
    In Christ,
    Raechel

    1. Hi!! I'm so glad you responded to my comment..I really didn't expect you to :) Me too...languages, travelling, and orphans are some of my passions!! I'm still learning to trust Christ fully.....I'm a very young Christian, but God is so patient...and so awesome!! I'd love to get to know you better too!! How do you pronounce your name? BTW there's quite a few people in Switzerland with your name :) They just say it differently...the say RAHEL...and pronounce the H :)

      Blessings,
      Chloe

  7. Hello again! :) oh yes, I share your passions - even if I haven't had the chance to travel quite yet. :)
    Learning to trust fully if a life-long thing, I think. He really is so patient and awesome!
    My name is pronounced just like 'Rachel' - my parents just added the extra 'e' to call me "Rae" :) Really? That's neat! That's a cool way of pronouncing it, too - I like it.
    Oh, and I was going to say in my other comment, that I too wear skirts 99.9% of the time. =)

    1. Ok :) Are you in college? Traveling is amazing!! Of course, there's down sides to it as with anything else.....but I wouldn't trade my life with anybody's :) IF you could go anywhere in the world where would you like to go? Nice!! I don't 'meet' many blog girls that wear skirts a lot. I love it, it's so feminine feeling. ~Chloe

    2. No, I'm not in college. I don't plan to go either - just don't feel that's God's will for me. I'm just learning what He wants to show me here at home. :) Hmmm...that's a hard question...My top three places I want to visit in the world (not necessarily in order) are Russia, Northern Ireland, and India. India I kind of know I'll visit, because that is where I feel strongly that I will mission - God is already preparing me for that. And then I'd love to visit Alaska sometime...Oh! And DEFINITELY Greenland and Iceland. I'd actually like to try living in Greenland... :)
      Oh I know, it is sometimes hard to find other skirt-wearers! I love it, too, though. :)

    3. OH my, are you serious!? It's my dream to go to India, it's been my dream ever since I was like 8 years old. I really, truly hope that God calls me there someday...I'd love to build an orphanage there! Haha...what the fascination with Greenland? BTW, if you'd rather email me rather than 'comment chat :) you can email me here bloomingmaid@gmail.com

    1. Thanks for replying so quickly!! Do you really live in Ireland?! I really want to go to Ireland sometime!!

      Delete
    2. Yes I live in Ireland and am from there. :) I'll be sure to do a ton more travel posts in the future including about Ireland. I have these annoying mocks going on (haha again another Irish thing!) which are just important(ish) exams so I haven't had the chance to update in a while! Anyway enough of this, thanks so much for following (I've added a widget for following at the bottom of my blog - thanks for the heads up!), I'll be sure to do the same!

  11. Just found your blog and really like it... I have to say I am quite intrigued by your story. I am going to start following you! That is really neat that you speak so many languages. I studied Latin some and have currently been learning Chinese for the past 4 or so years.

    I also, wear skirts quite a bit, though am not strictly "skirts only". I enjoy wearing both skirts and pants, and due to my lifestyle skirts are not always appropriate. My family owns a small ranch and so skirts aren't always the most practical for me.

    Just curious, where do you live now? My family has moved quite a bit too! The running total is 3 states and at least 9 houses, though it sound like you probably have me beat in this area.: )

    1. Hi Maria!!
      I'm glad you found my blog! I live in southern United States now...I try not to say the state name. But so far the total of my life is 6 states, 4 countries, 3 continents.. and at least 11 houses. WE are actually moving again in less than a month :) Don't you love moving?! Wow, that's cool that you're learning Chinese! Is it hard?
