My name is Jessica and I am a 35 year old wife, mother, full-time working gal, on-the-side photographer and home cook. I drive a minivan. My husband Blake and I have been married for almost a decade. He’s a chef but I’m the primary food preparer for our fam. I’ve got three kids: Brogan (7), Beckett (5) and Berkley (3). They make my world crazy but complete. I was made to be their mom. Recently I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer.
This blog is a place where I’ll be sharing my cancer journey and what big things God is doing through this trial. It’s also a place where I share my adventures in the kitchen, in parenthood and behind the lens. I love taking pictures of my children, my culinary creations, and most recently I’ve enjoyed doing some freelance photography too.
My cooking ventures are steered by a couple of things… 1) I love to cook from scratch… 2) I love quick weeknight meals… and 3) I’m trying my damnedest to get my children to not be picky eaters – so no “kids meals” here.
I am a UF grad (and huge Gator fan). I grew up in a small town in central Florida, have lived in the Atlanta area for over 10 years and definitely consider myself Southern. I love God, my family, my Nikon and butter.
