Simple Joys

A Lifestyle Blog


Welcome to Simple Joys Blog! My name is Jessyka and this is my lifestyle journal attempting to balance family, home, finance, health and fitness, and just life in general. I don't always have it together and posts may be sporadic, but bear with me. We may even learn a thing or two together along the way.

So a little about myself... I live in this little area of Texas called Aggieland with my husband, Jason. We met while I was waitressing and nine months later eloped. This year we celebrated 10 years of marriage! Whoop! Early in our marriage we were blessed with two two amazing children. Addyson is our oldest and Oscar joined our family just a short 15 months later. He was a bit of a surprise but he completed our family making us a family of four. We also have two precious fur babies, Hooch and Reese. I love our family and can't imagine life any other way. 

I work part-time from home, which is a huge blessing to our family. I enjoy my work and the freedom it provides so that I can also take on my "soccer mom" duties. My husband travels a lot for work, so I'm often a "single" mom trying to juggle our busy schedules. In between the chaos, I enjoy be able to write this blog. Sometimes it is necessary to end the day with a bottle of wine and a long soak in the tub. But hey, a mama's gotta do what a mama's gotta do. Ha!

Life is full of twists and turns and I'm just trying to keep up. I invite you grab a glass of wine or drink of your choice and stay a while.
