What I blog about
My name is Jessica. I am a mom of 2 and a wife to super supportive husband. My biggest problem is I have too many hobbies. This blog started as a way of sharing my love of gardening. But now has evolved to showcase my ever growing list of hobbies.
Recently, my life took a big turn. After working 10 years as an attorney, I quit my job to be a stay at home mom.
While I liked working as an attorney, I was spending all of my time doing one of three things: working, taking care of my kids or sleeping. That was it. I didn’t have quality time with my husband, I never saw my friends, my house was a mess, and I was exhausted all of the time. My days became a cycle of work, kids and sleep. I felt guilty when I was awake for not spending time with my kids or catching up on work. I had no time to pursue the many hobbies I am interested in.
I liked my job, I had a wonderful husband and amazing children but I was incredibly unhappy.
I never imagined I would be a stay at home mom, even after I quit my job I couldn’t picture being at home all the time. It has been a transition for me and my family, one that I am excited to share.
This major life change has resulted in changes to the blog, as I want to share this experience, learn from other moms and explore hobbies I have never had a chance to do.
