About Me

Well, hi there. Thanks for stopping by!

If you're pulling up a chair for the first time, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jessica and I'm raising my bunch deep in the heart of Arkansas. This blog was created in 2008 as a way to document the early years of my baby boy. Several years and two more babies later, it's still going strong. I use this space to share our stories and the lessons I've learned along the way. My parenting strategy in a few words: I figure it out as I go, I keep my fingers crossed, and I exhale when I feel like I get it right. If you like what you read, be sure to follow the social media links over there to the right, directly above my big mug. Facebook and Instagram are my favorites.

About Jessica {just in case you're curious}: The days of calling myself a twenty-something are now behind me and I'm 100% okay with it. I love digging in the veggie garden as much as I like vegging out in front of the TV. Cheap wine, good books, and summer nights are my love language. I married my college sweetheart in 2006 and I adore building this life with him. I have a paid part-time job in an office and an unpaid part-time job in a church. Ball that up with the full-time roles that come with the territory, and things can get crazy. That is why I'm here. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I would explode without this outlet. I used to write for a living, but now I write for you. Aren't you lucky?

I love getting to know readers, so if you get the urge to contact me with writing ideas or parenting advice, please email me at jessicabauer84{at}hotmail{dot}com. I'd be delighted to say hello.

Until then, feel free to click around the tabs at the top of the page. They link out to different categories for you to explore. Go ahead and grab a jar of iced tea or a fruity, frozen alternative, and get comfortable. Jump in beside me as I try to figure out this whole motherhood thing. Welcome!
