I was blessed with becoming a mommy on March 24, 2013 to my little man, Asher Lee. He's my brave, blonde-headed boy who keeps me on my toes and challenges me to be a better person everyday. His name means "happy," and he truly epitomizes joy. He lights up my world, and his kisses and "I love you Mommy's" melt me every time.

This blog is about my life, family, faith, design and my daily musings! I have a passion for all things lovely and beautiful - from design, hand lettering, beauty, fashion and everything in between. And I hope my thoughts, designs & inspiration help make your life beautiful, too - a life to be celebrated! I greatly love to inspire and be inspired - and sharing that inspiration everyday is why I started this blog. 

I hope you enjoy taking the journey with me! Thanks for following!

Well hello there lovely people! Let me share a little bit about myself and the heartbeat behind Hoorae Studio.

I am Ali Rae Alltop (the "Rae" in Hoorae) and I'm 29 years old.

I'm married to my dashing husband, Josh, of 5 years, and it's been the adventure of a lifetime. He's a musician and producer and the most talented man I know. He spoils me relentlessly. He constantly pushes me to follow my dreams, is my biggest cheerleader, and keeps me laughing 'til my sides hurt. He's my best friend.


In January of 2013, Josh and I started down an incredible journey to adopt a little girl from Uganda, Africa. She was born in December of 2012, and her name is Miracle. And she is exactly that - to us and to anyone whose life she has already touched. The adoption process took 3.5 yrs, but in God's perfect timing, we welcomed our sweet "Myra" home to be the newest beautiful addition to our family!
