I'm Jessica! Mama, bread baker, guerrilla gardener, beer enjoyer, plastic avoided, tv killer, small time blogger. Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

Since 2003, my partner through this wild life is Jeff. The details on how we met vary a bit depending on which one of us you're talking to, but the story always ends the same... we were stoked about each other. Jeff has been my best friend for a lot of years. He's a wonderful and inspiring human - the type that makes you want to be better yourself. We have been through thick and thin over the years but always come out on the other side stronger and more committed to our life together. We have a dog, Chapeau, a pomeranian toy poodle who we adopted in 2004 - he is full of mischief but is one of the sweetest little pups you will ever meet.

During the summer of 2009, we took a month long road trip and drove across Canada.  We traveled from our home in Calgary, Alberta, all the way to Halifax, Nova Scotia and back. We were lucky enough to have both our brothers join us on the ride out, so with 4 adults and little dog in tow, our car was well packed. It was such a great trip being able to stop every where we wanted along the way- visiting family and friends all over this great country of ours. Upon our return home, we discovered we were pregnant! We were both very surprised, but quickly warmed up to the idea of growing our family and having a little human to share our love and hopes for the world with. In April of 2010, we gently welcomed Finn Nathan Kyle into our family. Named after of our brothers, we couldn't be happier to have this little munchkin in our lives!

So, to bring us up to right now - we currently reside in Vancouver, BC.  I have a small business doing marketing and admin support for entrepreneurs, and Jeff works as a freelance photographer and the editor of a skateboard magazine.We do our best to live a conscious, engaged, and meaningful life - all packed in to our sweet little home in rainy Vancouver. Follow us through our everyday adventures, a few crafts and diy projects, reflections on living small, yummy food, a bit of travel, and many wonderful memories.

Please contact me with any questions or you just to say hi! I would love to hear from you!
