Hello and Welcome!

My name is Jessie and I am momma to two goofy kids, Caitlin and Hunter, and wife to one hunky handyman, Chris. That's them, up there in the picture with me. We are just a typical hockey-soccer-camping-British-TV-show-lovin' family. 

I started this blog to document the minutiae of our family life, but it is evolving into something more {at least, I hope it is}. I am at a crossroads in my professional life; having spent the last few years teaching ESL and completing a graduate degree in English, I should be plunging back, full force, into the workplace. Instead, I am returning to the work that has always made me happiest, homemaking.
I will also be homeschooling our son for the first time, starting in the fall of 2012.
I realize that these decisions are a wee bit unexpected {especially for my extended family}, so this blog serves as a place for me to dream and differ. I hope to fill it with all my favorite things: home decor ideas, DIY projects, books, fashion, and food.

Thanks for stopping by. 
If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you. You can always reach me at jessieruhl@gmail.com

  1. I am so glad to come visit your blog. I teach English in Spain. I am not certified to do so. I am an Elementary school teacher and I am a native. this counts for a lot here.

    I also homeschool my three boys.

    You are making a great choice to stay home with your children.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know what you think.
