R2D2 Star Wars Valentine’s Box

by jessicaturner on January 26, 2015

With Valentine’s less than three weeks away, I wanted to share this sweet Valentine’s box that Elias and I made last year for his class party. I was going through some old photos and realized I never shared it last year. If you have a Star Wars lover in your house, this is an easy […]


Letting Go of the Self-Imposed Pressures

by jessicaturner on January 23, 2015

Since having Ezra, I have been reminded of the importance of saying no and letting go of self-imposed pressures. As you can imagine, having a baby six weeks before you release your first book is a bit crazy. And while being on maternity leave from my full-time job definitely means I have had a lot […]


Ezra’s First Two Weeks & My Recovery

by jessicaturner on January 19, 2015

I can’t believe we have been home with Ezra for just over two weeks already. We are all so completely smitten over him. Between my recovery and the big pre-sale last week on The Fringe Hours, I had much energy to blog, but I am getting back in the saddle this week. I have missed […]


2 Days Only: Pre-order The Fringe Hours for 50% Off

by jessicaturner on January 12, 2015

It’s hard to believe that two years ago this month, I had an idea for a book to encourage all women to practice self-care and make time for themselves. Multiple publishers were interested in publishing the book, called The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You, and I am so thankful that I signed with Revell. […]


Welcoming Ezra Mark Turner

by jessicaturner on January 8, 2015

Happy New Year! I can’t believe we are already one week into 2015. In case you missed it in social media, our sweet bundle of joy, Ezra Mark Turner unexpectedly arrived the morning of New Year’s Eve! I have had a slow recovery and am just now feeling up for sharing the whole story. (Hopefully […]


Preparing for Baby: Newborn Essentials

by jessicaturner on December 29, 2014

With my delivery just a week away, we are in big-time baby prep mode in our house. We actually got rid of most of our baby gear after having Adeline, so its been fun considering what I’ll want again this time around, as well as what new products to invest in. I am so excited […]


Maternity Family Photo Shoot

by jessicaturner on December 24, 2014

We had a maternity photo session Thanksgiving weekend and I have been meaning to share the photos for weeks! We used several of them on our Christmas card and I plan to make a photo book with the set of 30 that I purchases. We hired Kara DiCarlo Photography for a 45-minute session and if […]


Exclusive 50% off Kiwi Crates

by jessicaturner on December 16, 2014

When we got home from school/work last night, some of my favorite packages were on the door step – Minted (the rest of our Christmas cards!), Zulily (baby clothes), Honest Company (some home items I ordered to have on hand for when the baby gets here) and Kiwi Crate! Of course, Elias was elated about […]


Magic for the Christmas Season

by jessicaturner on December 12, 2014

Despite me being VERY pregnant this Christmas, I have worked hard to be intentional about making Christmas memories with our children. At ages 3 and 6, they are so delightful! Everything is fun, surprising and wonderful to them. It’s been a real joy. Here are some of the things we have done: We are reading […]


Join The Fringe Hours Launch Team {CLOSED}

by jessicaturner on December 11, 2014

The launch team is now full- thank you to all who signed up! It’s hard to believe that the release of The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You (available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and wherever books are sold) my first book, is just about two months away! The Fringe Hours is not a book […]
