Hi, I’m Jessica. I’m a maker from way back when, and my mom still has the macaroni necklaces to prove it. These days, I make different things — I make a home for myself and my husband, I make cute babies, I make music, I make things with my hands, I make connections in my community (online and IRL), I make people feel empowered to create loveliness in their everyday. And then I make you read about it all right here. Suckers.
A little more about me: I’m an adventurer at heart, and I love exploring beautiful places, eating good food, snapping photos, and spending time with my favorite people. I have a goal to visit all 50 U.S. states, and I’m only 5 short of reaching it. I play a mean ukulele, and I’ve never met a piece of candy I didn’t like. In my past life, I lived in NYC as a musical theatre performer and sang and danced for a living. Now, I live in California with my husband Ryan and our babes Henry and Maggie.
fun facts about me:
- I spend way too much money at Target and I love a pair of fancy shoes – but I’ll never shop at JOANN without a coupon!
- Carbs are my favorite food group with a particular penchant for the french fry and biscuit variety.
- I hate the combination of mint and chocolate – it’s gross.
Best song to sing at the top of my lungs? Alone by Heart. Hands down.
