About Me

 Hello!!  I'm Jackie!!  
And apparently I really like exclamation points!!

A few years ago I managed to convince this really awesome guy to marry me, and now we're ya know... married.  :)

We have a fantastic little red-headed boy who's pretty much the cutest thing ever.  He seriously keeps us laughing all the time.  Basically, he rocks our world.    

I graduated law school in May of 2012 and, after passing the Bar in late August, joined a firm where I worked from September 11, 2012 until July 26, 2013. Although I really enjoyed the type of law that I practiced, my family was getting what was "left over" of me.  And, after numerous years of college and law school, the thought of my family not getting my best was just too much.  

Lots and lots of conversation later, my husband and I made the decision for me to stay home with our son.  In fact, we're about to begin our first year of homeschooling.  I'm super excited (and nervous!)  My goal is to open my own practice beginning in 2014 so that I can work part-time while staying at home with our little guy.

As for blogging, I absolutely stinking love it!!  It's a wonderful outlet, has allowed me to capture many great memories and meet many amazing people.  I never thought I'd say that when I started this blog in March 2011.  Thankfully, now that school is behind me I'll be able to write as frequently as I did before school got out of control and kept me from doing the activities that I enjoyed.  I'm really looking forward to catching up with my readers and all of you that I follow as well as sharing more with all of you now that I have the time again.

People always ask others, "How would you describe yourself?"  Well, I've come up with an answer.  I've decided that in all meanings of the word both good and bad, I am absolutely relentless.

And this is my happy place.  Enjoy.  :)
