Who is Jessica?

Since this space is still very new, I thought it would be nice to include a “get to know me” kind of post. I always love learning more about the people behind blogs I read, so I thought you might as well.

I am an elementary school teacher. I got certified alternatively a few years after college. I went to school to be a journalist, but my first job out of college was as a technical writer. It’s taken me a while to find my career groove, and if I’m being honest, I still am.

My husband and I started dating my senior year of high school. He was a junior. Almost ten years later we got married. We didn’t date the WHOLE ten years, but we were always in each other’s lives. We will be celebrating one year of wedded bliss this April.

We have no kiddos (yet!), but we do have one dog. She is our sweet baby — at least she is mine. πŸ™‚ Pippa recently celebrated her sixth birthday and is coming up on six years of being with me. She was a stray that someone found and I took in. She was about six months old at the time.

I am a chocolate fiend. Dark chocolate and Reese’s are my absolute favorite. I have a bag of dark chocolate kisses in my freezer right now — you know, for emergencies. πŸ˜‰

My favorite wine is Sister Creek Vineyards Muscat Canelli. We have found it at exactly ONE store in our area, so I always buy two bottles.

As much as I enjoy wine, I LOVE coffee! I’m drinking coffee as I type this. I could drink it all day, but if I did, I’d never meet my water goal. My husband thinks I’m a weirdo because I drink it black.

I love reading and learning about health and fitness. About five years ago, I overhauled my life and lost 20 pounds. I’m proud to say that after all these years, I still love working out and I’ve been able to stay at a healthy (for me) weight.

I recently bought a new car! I traded in the first car I ever bought myself for a new Lincoln MKX. I LOVE it, but I definitely had an emotional attachment to my old car.

I love trashy reality tv! My husband haaaates it, so when he’s not home I get caught up on Ladies of London, Vanderpump Rules, and all the Real Housewives drama!

I did not read the Harry Potter series until last year. When the books first came out I was in my “I’m too cool to read,” stage and then I wanted to read all the books before watching any of the movies. It took me until I was 27 to get around to it and I’m so sad I wasted all those years! Team Gryffindor.

Ok, that’s enough for today. πŸ™‚ Now, tell me more about you!

    I love this post and learning more about you! Nathan was one grade year younger than me, too! And we dated for 10 years before we married. Sweet Pippa! I love that you have a picture with her in your wedding dress. I know she’s a big part of your life. Happy 2017!
