Hey blog, I miss you. Can we be friends again? Yes? Ok good. How am I you ask? Pretty splendid. New job + weekends free + actually having money to spend during those weekends= extremely happy Jessi.
It took me a while to settle in to this new ‘adult’ schedule, but I’m back baby! For the first time in our (almost) seven years together Jacob and I have the same schedule. It’s been wonderful to for us to cook dinner every night and spend the weekends being lazy together. If you know me, however, lazy isn’t really my thing. I like to be busy. Scratch that, I have to be busy. So while I wait for more wedding projects to come along I’m throwing myself back into the crafting world. Last week I finished sewing some cute presents for my mom’s birthday (that I will reveal after she gets them this weekend on the off chance that she reads this). I’m also in the midst of knitting baby booties and planning a baby shower for one of my best friends and bridesmaid. AND I’ve started my first big sewing project-a t-shirt quilt!
the idea is that it will look something like this

ran a wedding advice series and this is what one contributor, Jessica had to say:

According to my grandfather: “Any disagreement can be settled with two words: ‘Yes, dear.’ “
