Well…hello! My name is Jaclyn and my family and I reside in Pearland, Texas. Pearland is a suburb city right outside of Houston. A lot of pears? Not so much.

Who am I in a nutshell?

A devoted wife. A mom on a mission. A believer sharing God’s grace.

Can’t relate, stay anyway!

I have always been a creative person. I was a dancer til I was about 22 years old and man, do I miss it. I have a BFA in Visual Arts and Design with an emphasis in photography. I have been a freelance photographer for about 8 years now. I always thought I was going to be an interior designer. In college, I decided to change my major from interior design to photography. Nowadays, I often find myself back in the realm of design and decorating. I really enjoy it and have been finding ways to combine photography and decorating/design. At the end of the day, I have always been a creative arts career gypsy.

I am a mother of two boys. The mom life of boys is a fun and wild one. My oldest has a love for numbers and has such a fun and corky personality. He is also a pretty impressive golfer for his age. Our youngest is almost two and growing like a weed. They have such a great bond with each other. Gosh, it’s so wonderful to watch! Oh yeah, and neither of them let me sleep. Like seriously, I am always exhausted.

My husband is my soulmate. I married my high school sweetheart and it has been such a blessing to be able to literally grow up together. We grew up a few streets away from each other and attended school together from kindergarten through college. Over time we have realized just how much we enjoy working together. That being said, our goal is to support our family while being able to work together doing something we love.

This blog has been in the works for a few years now as it was originally going to showcase the transformation of our current home. Though it is still going to touch on that, it will be more of a beginning and continuation of our home rehabbing journey from this point on as well as the everyday happenings of life. So relax, enjoy, and don’t visit just to be a grammar grinch or anything like that! I don’t sleep so it’s bound to happen from time to time.

** I want to make sure and include a link to my graphic designer. If you are in the market for one, I highly recommend Monique. I told her my vision and she brought it to life. She also did my photography logo many years ago. Check her out! Just by looking at her site you will know she “get’s it.”
