Hey! I’m Jess and welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I share about all the things I “like to love”. Yes, our world is crazy and largely depressing but there is  still so much to enjoy about it too. My hope is that you might discover something new here and fall in love too.

I’m privileged to be married to the funniest person I know, Trip, and really grateful for my two crazy kids, Q and Selah. I’m a Pittsburgh native but I’ve been making my way down the east coast and we now call Atlanta home.

Just as an FYI, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest BUT outside of letting ya’ll know about a new post, I really don’t use anything but Instagram. It’s my favorite social media platform, and the only one I use on a consistent basis. But for those who might prefer a different platform, I want it to be easy for you to get updates. 🙂

    Grace & peace,

  4. Hey Jess, I just read your guest post on your husband’s blog. It was awesome and so true. I often find myself feeling discontent after spending hours on facebook, which why I’m hardly ever on anymore. When I saw “master of nothing lover of everything” I immediately thought that’s just like me. Looking forward to more blogs from you. btw your son is so adorable!

  7. Hello Jessica. I too found your blog via your husband’s builttobrag site. Yes, I read your post and couldn’t agree with you more regarding the pitfalls of social media sites. Nevertheless, after reading through your site, I’m truly blessed by the candor you’ve shared concerning the realities of life as a woman of God, a wife and mother. Like you, I had “big” dreams for how my life was to play out. (i.e. 42 and single, worldly successful so that I could eat out every night, and adopting children). But GOD, in His sovereignty, had greater and better. Married at 24 in 1998, mother of four sons, and, according to my family, a “good” cook :-). “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purposes of the LORD that will stand” Proverbs 19:21. Let God be true and every man a liar. Be blessed.

    1. Hey Selena. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Mother of four boys!?! You are a special women 🙂 I’m grateful God has better plans for us than we do.
