about me


Hi! I’m Jess, learning to also be called Jessica but a tiny part of me still thinks I’m in trouble whenever I hear it….

The beach makes me happy. So does blue sky, being outside, talking around a campfire, Anne of Green Gables, eating food with people, and creating something. I caught the travel bug five years ago and 2017 is the Year On the Move – I’m currently teaching English in Laos and having a blast!

My ancestor made pianos for Queen Victoria, so, you know, that’s cool. My dream is to play Maple Leaf Rag before I die and until I reach that distant accomplishment, I’ll listen to the La La Land soundtrack on loop.

I’m a born and bred Kimberley kid (aka north Western Australia, 3000+ km’s away from my own state capital of Perth). I am a snobbish mango picker and consumer in November, and I love camping and bushwalking in June.

I spent the last few years in administration and reception; it’s my jam. Before that I homeschooled two young girls part time. I write lists and ramblings incessantly.ย I need a lot of sleep. I also love early mornings and the two fight each other in the depths of my soul…

I like playing board games, cooking, swimming, talking, pretty things, discussing heart + theology (the practical kind, not the so-deep-it-hurtses kind), reading books, and watching movies with the fambam.

I don’t like egg custard or wasabi; jury is still out on tofu.ย I’m conflicted if pink or blue is my favourite colour.

My motto in life reminds me that life doesn’t have to be perfect, to be wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by. Peacin’ out.

  1. Dear Jess,

    Hello, I just wanted to comment on how marvelous your blog is, it is a hope that you have restored in me, in terms of God, i mean. Thank you so much for sharing.

    That’s something that I’m busy doing with my own blog, sharing, about myself and my past experiences. I’m still only 17 years old, I will be turning 18 in 13 days, and I have to say that I have been away from wordpress too long.

    A lot has happened to me through out the short life that I’ve lived, so in short I am using this newly created blog as a way to document many of the events in my life. Unfortunately I haven’t done as much extensive managing and work into it, as you have done so very well with your own ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m a bit of a writer so sometimes I just go on and on, so I will stop now, before I end up writing an entire book!

    Again, thank you, feel free to visit my blog, if you wish.
    That’s why I’m writing it, because I no longer have anything to hide, I’m bearing my soul to the world; as it were. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for taking the time to read this. ๐Ÿ™‚
