When the two of us got home from our amazing European adventure, there was a lot to consider. It is an absolute dream to be able to travel the world, and we are so thankful we got to do it together. But as time has gone on, we have found ourselves in different places in our lives.

Everything about Madly Amusing has been a complete God-thing. When Rae found herself with an idea, a one-way ticket to Europe, and no one to accompany her, God brought the two of us together. When we were two recent grads with big dreams and empty bank accounts, God provided a way for us to see eight different countries in 90 days. He challenged both of us to do something out of our comfort zones. To jump and have faith that He would be there to catch us. And He always is.

 Now we are at a place in life where God has given us clarity that it is time we do our own thing. At first, this was scary and sad to come to terms with. Now, we look at it as another opportunity to grow and push ourselves.

So, what’s next?

You’ve probably noticed some changes on the Madly Amusing website – which Rae is and will continue to run on her own. Madly Amusing will be a place to follow her exciting travels and life.

As for Della, she will continue her job at local denim bar, Blond Genius, and has started her own blog – The Della Collective! Make sure you follow her on this exciting new journey.


We hope that all of you continue to follow the two of us on whatever adventure we find ourselves on next!

And don’t worry, this isn’t the last you will see of this brunette blonde duo. We have exciting plans for the future, but we won’t ruin the surprise quite yet.

Before closing this Della & Rae chapter, we thought we’d look back on the incredible time we have had…

From the yachts…

the donkeys… 

the trails…

the vineyards… 

the mountains…

The holidays…

The festivals…

And all the gelato…

We spent this year not just existing, but living.


So here’s to us. To our memories. Our friendship. Our future.

and for the last time,

xo, Della and Rae
