Hey y’all. I’m Jessica. I am a Southerner, born and raised in South Carolina. Sorry, but I do say “y’all” a lot, so you’ll have to excuse me. I love Jesus, my husband and our two little boys.
Note: this is real life. I don’t paint a picture of a perfect, neat & tidy existence. Sometimes things are a mess around here, but I’m sure you can relate.
Our little family just finished building our forever home out in the country- we love our house and being surrounded by woods and wildlife (except when it starts to eat our garden, then not so much). We look forward to raising our boys in a place they can run, play and climb trees!
My husband, Trevor, and I have come a long way from the bad blind date that introduced us to each other. We’ve gone through marriage, infertility, the birth of two kids, postpartum depression and an autism diagnosis for our oldest, among other things. Thankfully, God had a great big plan for us (which we’re still figuring out), and we’ve grown closer together through everything that’s come our way, both good and bad. We are living our days for Christ, and even though we screw up a lot, we keep at it because it’s what we’re called to do.
Other random tidbits I didn’t know where to stick: my husband is a firefighter (that has aspirations of being a lumberjack), I am a working mom, we’re Southern Baptist, we really like DIY projects, I love to cook and do it all. the. time. thanks to our oldest son’s soy allergy & I am a smidgeon of a control freak. That’s probably enough to get you started.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, here’s the inspiration for my blog title, ala Knox
