Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by for a visit!
Who am I?
Well surprisingly this question is the hardest for me to answer. Do I just give you my name which is Jessica? or tell you that I’m a work at home mom to four really awesome and fun loving kids? or do I say that after years of being a working full time single mom I had transitioned into being a stay at home mom who doesn’t know how to be a stay at home mom. Well that’s basically the jest of who I am. I’m a mom, wife, crafter, cook, friend, and most of all I’m just me trying to navigate this crazy world the best I know how. I’ve learned a lot along the way and have a ton more to learn. I’m glad you’re here on this journey with me.
Why I started this blog?
I started this blog because honestly I found myself in a rut. I was a full time working mom for years and single at that with three kiddos at the time and well you’re kinda just on auto-pilot to get things done. You don’t really think about it, you just do whatever it is to make it through the day and hopefully everyone has all their limbs and sanity at the end of it. Fast forward a year and I’m no longer single and added a new addition to our family. We had decided at that time that the cost of childcare wasn’t worth working and the kids needed me at home with them. We were fortunate enough to be able to make it work on one income. You would think I would be ecstatic and I was at first then I was like now what. I found myself stuck in the day to day routine and not really leaving the house much so I figured that a blogging lifestyle kinda forces you to get out there to have something to write about. I’ve always loved to write and needed an outlet beyond Social Media…I actually needed to get out there and be social. So this blog is simply about living life, having adventures, and just doing the things that I love.
