A Little Fairy & New Shoes

by jessicaturner on August 25, 2015

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Stride Rite for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Since having Adeline’s fairy party in June, the fairy craze has continued. Adeline loves to dress up and play pretend. Her imagination is incredible. Last week, she was cleaning her room before school and found […]

by jessicaturner on August 24, 2015

The school year and soccer has begun. While it is still very warm outside, the lazy days of summer is gone. If your family is like mine, you are likely adjusting to the new schedule of drop-off lines, homework and sports practice — and if your kids haven’t started school yet, they will be soon. […]


Week in the Life

by jessicaturner on August 20, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed I’ve been doing Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life project. This is an annual exercise she hosts encouraging people to document their week. A few observations I have had: Every time I do this project, in the beginning, I get a bit consumed with capturing […]

Update: The God Made Light book has sold out, but the products are still available. More than four years ago, while I was on maternity leave with Adeline, Matthew wrote a children’s book called God Made Light. With words like….

Choosy Moms Choose Jif… and Fun Festivals

by jessicaturner on August 12, 2015

For as long as I can remember, I have liked peanut butter. Actually not liked… loved. I ate Jif peanut butter and jelly sandwiches nearly every day of my childhood. Give me a choice of a candy and its peanut butter cups every time. Peanut butter cheese cake. Peanut butter anything. Love, love, love. When […]


The First Day of School in Pictures

by jessicaturner on August 11, 2015

Last week was a big week for our kids. The two little ones started at a new day care that is closer to our home (and more affordable) and Elias started first grade. Of course, I had to print signs from Pinterest for Elias and Adeline to hold up to document the milestone. We’ll do […]
