Jessica is a home-maker but that is not a career taken lightly. Not by any home-maker I would dare say, but especially not this lady! First and foremost, Jess loves Jesus! Jessica loves her family- she has an amazing husband, Jeremy, and four awesome kids, Sam, Anna, Elijah, Matthew. Jessica is a farmer. Jessica is a gardener. Jessica is a fantastic, original, clean-food cook. She crochets, she knits, she sews. (Ask her to re-activate her etsy page!) Oh... and she prepares hundreds of cans of meat, veggies, refried beans- you name it!- each year to get her family of 6 through the winter! Jess has severe food allergies and it has challenged and changed the way they live and eat. They also get regular food from their chickens and duck, pigs, and any wild game that they shoot throughout the year. And she does is all in stride! Not only is she talented in ALL of those areas, she also has a great sense of design! When I first met her when I was dating her brother, I would just wander through her homes, in awe of what she came up with. Her husband used to be a builder and carpenter (and man! does he have great talent!!) and this is their sixth home. I can remember my favorite elements of design from each and every home they've had since I've known them. They do things on a budget but I believe that encourages their ingenuity! So I wanted to share just a glimpse of their home with you (because Jess can show you the rest)!!
Their living room: Notice the curtains Jess sewed (they are just darling!) and her cute desk area. The rusted metal plate was found on their property and it's as old as it looks! And useful too!
The bathroom: Jess distressed this cabinet and I'm disappointed that the picture doesn't do it justice. It's done to perfection! And again, (sigh) that blue!!
woodshed.... it's the whole Farmhouse package! Just see some of her blog yourself!
Isn't it all so great?! Farmhouse perfection in my book!
Jess is an excellent blogger as well and funny as heck! Remember, she's an excellent cook and you can bet it's healthy and whole! She's even made the Gooseberry Cookbook TWICE! Here's one of the recipes! They also brew their own beer and make their own wine! You can read more from her here! Go! Go and explore her blog and Instagram and show her some love!
Love you Jess and Fam!!!
