An Update...

Hello!  Where has the time gone?  Hard to believe we're a month into 2014 and I've yet to do a single post. Thank you to those who've checked  in on me.  I'm alive and well!

That's not to say that there haven't been some big changes in my life lately. The past 6 months have been a roller coaster of ups and downs, highs and lows.  For starters, this happened:

I'm not one to share too much of my personal life on this blog but long story short, Jake and I got divorced, we sold our house, and I've been living in a new apartment since November.

I also started a part-time job doing financial planning which has kept me pretty busy with little time to blog or do design work.  After a steady stream of business around the holidays, I decided to give myself a few months off to regroup, decompress, and figure out my new routine.

I have hopes of decorating my apartment and sharing some pictures and projects with you, but to be honest, right now things are looking less than stellar!  Moving from a 4 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom apartment is definitely a challenge.  Space is limited and I have a hodge podge of home furnishings.  I'm debating how much time/money/effort I want to put into this place since I only plan to be here 4 more months, but the decorator in me is going crazy!  

I did snap some "before" photos of my apartment before I moved in so I'll share those with you soon and once I finish unpacking boxes (shh... I know it's been 2 months!) I will share some progress photos with you.  

I miss all my blog friends and hope you're having a very happy and healthy 2014!


  1. I'm glad to hear you are alive and well! Can't wait to hear more about your new place =)

  2. Jessica,
    As sad as it is for one chapter of your life to end, there are many more to begin. Best wishes in your new adventures.

  3. Thanks for the update Jess. I'm glad that you're back and looking forward to seeing your new place (no matter how small). Good luck!

  4. Hey Jess,

    I just wanted to say I TOTALLY Understand how you feel. 5 months ago my ex and I called it quits and I completely gave up on my blog for months after struggling to try to put words to paper. It just wasn't going to happen.

    It WILL get better, and there will be so much to look forward to in the future. Dont give up and push through the crappy moments. Plus that furry little guy in your life will be a big help :)

    Take care,

  5. Looking forward to following along on your new adventure!

  6. So sorry to hear about the divorce. I hope things will look up for you. The big question -- who got the dogs? :-)

  7. Thank you all for your sweet words! I am doing well and hope to be back to blogging soon! The dogs are with me :)

  8. Thanks for checking in Jessica. Hope your days are getting sweeter.

  9. Sorry to hear about your divorce, Jessica. Hopeful that everything works out for the best. Was wondering what software you use for your boards? I have to create one for my interior design course, but haven't found one I like. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Thanks!

    1. I Tedrick! I use Olioboard It's free and super easy to use :)

  10. I adore your decorating style and I look forward to you blogging again.
