Meet Jess

Hey y'all, my name is Jessica...welcome! I'm so happy that you found your way here!

Lovely Little Things is my creative outlet - a space for all of my thoughts + ideas to live. Our lives are extremely busy. I want LLT to be a hub where we can all come together to feel inspired + refreshed + encouraged :) My mission is to empower women to do just that - slow down and savor life's lovely little things.

I'm a sucker for reading about the "girl behind the screen" on other blogs so here is a little bit about me:

I call Tampa, Florida home, and let me just say - I love this city! I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart, Adam, a dog momma to 2 sweet pits, Buck + Harley, and a personal trainer turned full-time student (again). My first degree is in public relations. This time I'm pursuing speech-language pathology and my heart is overflowing because of it! I start my master's degree in August 2017 at Florida State University (GO NOLES!) and my dream is to do animal assisted therapy in a pediatric setting.

I recently got into hand lettering and I've quickly fallen in love with it. Along with that, I'm a new Silhouette Cameo 3 owner - aka I'm becoming quite the little craft queen ;)

I'm constantly redecorating rooms in my house to make them as cozy as possible. I can never drink just one cup of coffee. I own an embarrassing amount of lipstick. I write in my journal almost every day (nothing beats good ole pen and paper). And I'm known for compulsively organizing everything (my friends say, "There are type-A people and then there's you...").

Enthusiastic lover of:

Jesus, dogs, planners, sunflowers, almond milk lattes, tattoos, lifting weights, collecting cute coffee mugs, reading, crafting, list making, cozy spaces, country concerts (and tailgating of course), practicing my hand lettering, spending time outside, and monogramming anything that I can get my hands on

And because I'll use any excuse to show off my handsome husband and precious dogs, allow me to introduce you to them:

First up, my sweet husband, Adam. We've been together since 2006 and married since 2014. He brings joy to my days, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that he keeps me sane. He is the best man on the planet. I love him with all that I am.

And then there are my 2 boys, Buck and Harley. Buck is 4 and Harley is 2. Can you tell by their pictures who the troublemaker is? ;) They make me so happy every single day.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by :) I hope you are encouraged to slow down and savor life's lovely little things!

xo, Jess
