Hey there,
I’m Rachel Awtrey...

one of the voices behind the mic around here at Behind the Bliss. Most days you can find me crunching out some new fun design for for BTB or walking to my neighborhood’s coffee shop in Birmingham, Alabama. I’m mostly known for my “bonquiqui voice” and awkward dance moves.

I love serving you by bringing the truth to the table, opening up my story book and reading you a few pages and finding shortcuts for our life so we can focus on the parts that truly matter.

When I’m not busy working on the podcast, blog or other projects, you can catch me walking some trails with my pup, Remi, and my husband, Thomas or probably crying my eyes out to a new episode of Parenthood or This is Us.

What I do:

  1. I really love sharing all of the tips + tricks with people and share a lot of my life on Instagram.

  2. I write for my friends over on RachelAwtrey.com serving them through sharing life hacks.

  3. I work with my friend Mary Scott to bring you a weekly podcast that hopefully encourages or inspires you to be a better self.


  1. Married to the love of my life, Thomas

  2. We live in Birmingham, Alabama.

  3. Making things beautiful is my favorite thing to do.

  4. I’ll dance and lip-synch to any song you play for me.

  5. I share videos, funny stories and tons of pictures on my blog + Instagram.


I'd love for you to join me!
I'm so glad that you're here!
