Hey y’all. I’m Jessica. I am a Southerner, born and raised in South Carolina. Sorry, but I do say “y’all” a lot, so you’ll have to excuse me. I love Jesus, my husband and our two little boys (& our third baby boy, due February 2016).
Note: this is real life. I don’t paint a picture of a perfect, neat & tidy existence. Sometimes things are a mess around here, but I’m sure you can relate.
My husband, Trevor, and I have come a long way from the bad blind date that introduced us to each other. We’ve gone through marriage, infertility, the birth of two kids, postpartum depression and an Autism diagnosis for our oldest, among other things. Thankfully, God had a great big plan for us (which we’re still figuring out), and we’ve grown closer together through everything that’s come our way, both good and bad. We are living our days for Christ, and even though we screw up a lot, we keep at it because it’s what we’re called to do. I’m learning that joy is a choice, and it’s one that was hard for me to make, but once I did, life changed in some amazing ways.
Other random tidbits I didn’t know where to stick: my husband is a firefighter (that has aspirations of being a lumberjack), I am a working mom, we’re Southern Baptist, we really like DIY projects, I love to cook and do it all. the. time., I’m on a gluten-free diet & I am a smidgeon of a control freak. That’s probably enough to get you started.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, here’s the inspiration for my blog title, ala Knox (baby boy #1)
