hi, i'm jess!

I'm a work-at-home mama, an Air Force wife, a woman consumed with wanderlust, a foodie who loves cooking up something scrumptious, and a morning person driven by that first cup of coffee. I'm so happy you're here! Learn More
  • Gooooood morning! Today is National Coffee Dayโ€”woohoo! Now this is a holiday I can definitely get behind :)
  • Hello, gorgeous. #sandiegosunset #californiasunset #californiadreaming #godisawesome #nofilter
  • My little shopper in training! By the way, I'm pretty much obsessed with anything I try from TJ's now. It's becoming a problem. #julesgrace
  • When at IKEA.... (Also, that kale salad was ๐Ÿ‘)
  • See this face? She's been smiling, giggling, and almost literally bouncing off the walls at @kidventures for hours today. To say that the girls had a blast here is an understatement. If you're in #SanDiego and have kids, you HAVE TO check it out. #julesgrace (aka Ariel) #kidventures
  • San Diego is a magical place. They have businesses like @thebakedbear that's devoted to delicious things like ice cream sandwiches! This one two warmed funfetti cookies sandwiched between coffee ice cream, and it was SO yummy. There were so many flavor combo options, too!
  • Like mother, like daughter! ๐Ÿ“ธ Picture on left: me, circa 1984/1985ish. ๐Ÿ“ธ Picture on right: #maddieroo, today (19 months old) ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿณ๐ŸฌBoth pictures taken at @seaworldsandiego!
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte? NOPE! You won't catch me drinking that. It may be 70-degrees in sunny California, but I needed a Caramel Apple Spice in my life. Bring on the apples! 
Speaking of apples, I'm talking about apple picking on the blog today! 
Are you all about the ๐ŸŽƒ or ๐ŸŽ?
  • We missed Italy so much that we set out to find us some #vino๐Ÿท today. We stumbled on a Grape Stomping Festival, and #julesgrace even got her feet in on the stomping action!
