So you clicked on this tab because you are a little interested about who I am, so I thought I would use this small space to share a few things about me and my family. :0) I am a small town girl, born and raised in Vidor, TX. Yes, I am admitting that haha… some people think I’m crazy for that but it really is a great place to grow up. I have memories and friends that I will carry with me for the rest of my life! I went to Texas A&M University and majored in Interdisciplinary Studies in Grades 4-8 Math and Science. I started dating my husband there, and in 2007 we got married. Jacob finished his Master’s degree in Finance and then we moved to Houston, where he began his career with Ernst and Young and I started working for Clear Creek ISD teaching 8th grade Science. I also have a younger sister who now lives in Houston with her hubbie too, who is also a teacher and photographer! After 5 years of teaching, we got pregnant with our first son and had him in June of 2013. His name is Jackson and he is now five years old.
I now am a stay at home Mom, and I can say at this point that I love it. It has been the hardest thing I have ever done, but I am so thankful I get to spend every day with them. We had our second son in May of 2015, his name is Jude and he is now three years old. We lived in Houston for about ten years, and recently moved back to College Station for my husband’s new job, and for us to just have a better family life. We have loved living here again, and have really appreciated the slower pace of life this city has to offer.
We just had our third son, Jenson in March of 2018. He has been the most precious little addition to our family, and we just LOVE being a family of little boys. They are busy and always moving but they are fun and keep things interesting.
It has been a wonderful 11 years of marriage so far and we have enjoyed the experiences of buying three homes together, traveling, having babies and Jacob advancing in his career with different companies. We love our little life together and are so incredibly thankful for each other and everything God has placed in our lives, good and bad. I look at where we are now and just can’t believe all that we have done, been through and have. I hope you enjoy sharing it with us in my little space of thoughts here.
I feel like I have a lot of different interests, which is kind of what this blog is about. I love reading and I love reading people’s blogs online, and when my friend started her blog years ago, I thought, “Hey, maybe I will start one too!” I basically just talk about things that interest me in hopes that you will find something that interests you. I love to travel, cook and bake, garden, read, organize, listening to classical music but am first and foremost a Christian! So you will also see a lot of posts related to my spiritual beliefs and other devotional moments. Since I am a Mommy now, with the privilege of staying home with my babes, I also post some things about babies and mommy stuff. I also have a spunky, insanely affectionate… like obsessively friendly labradoodle who loves nothing more than to follow me around all. day. long. named Jacey.
