I’m Jacki.

I’m a single mom of three who has been obsessed with photography, interior design, and general homemaking type things my entire life.

And writing. I LOVE to write.

For several years I’ve wanted to combine all of it and maintain a lifestyle blog dedicated to all of my favorite things. But depression hit, and it hit hard. Words would escape me every time I sat down to write. At times the words would come, but I’d erase them all wondering who would care about anything I had to say anyway. Maybe nobody would. Maybe nobody will. It’s entirely possible I’ll never grow a large audience here. I do know, however, that if I had kept writing through the years where it felt like nobody was listening, it may have helped anyone who was.

Sometimes we just need to know we aren’t alone. Because parenthood, well, this is some hard shit you guys.

I want to create a space where you can come to find meal plan ideas when you can’t figure out what to make for dinner, get fitness motivation when you just aren’t feeling it, or find nice design ideas to make your home a haven even on a thrift store budget. But mostly, I want to show you that I absolutely do not have it all together. That it’s possible to do great things even if you don’t have it all together.

This is real life, and it’s going to be beautiful anyway.

    I appreciate your honesty. I too struggle with depression and I’m excited to have found your space. Although I’m not a mother, I’ve been a professionally nanny to a three year old girl since she was four days old. So I can relate in areas. Thanks for being real!
