Meet Jess

Hello! I'm Jess (though I prefer Jessica sometimes) and this is my gang - Ian, my hubby {and partner in crime} of 16 years. Connor (10) the boy who made me a mom and likes to keep me on my toes. Isla (8), the girl who adds sass and sparkle to our lives. Callum (4), the boy who keeps me humble and was definitely worth the four years we waited and prayed for him. And the youngest member of the gang, Willa, is just the smiliest thing you ever did see.

Before my life became all about potty training, school runs and lego building, I used to live in Scotland and basically used this space to document all the snow and our travel in Europe. Sounds fancy, right?!? It was pretty amazing.

Here's some random facts about me and my gang:

The hubby runs a coffee roasting business out of our house…I used to bag all that coffee, but FOUR KIDS, so I no longer help out.

Connor was born in Scotland and holds dual citizenship.

The husband and I started dating in high school. We went to prom together and everything. 

My whole pregnancy, I thought Isla was a boy. It was a pleasant surprise to discover she was a she.

I've guessed the gender wrong now with all four of our children…mother's intuition, what's that?!

I enjoy being a mom way more that I thought I would.  

I am shy when I meet new people.

I am sarcastic.

I've had a nose ring for more than a third of my life. 

I am a stickler about running on time. And I feel like people don't value my time when they are constantly late. 

I have a love affair with coffee.

I worked at Starbucks in Scotland.

I also worked at a fake Starbucks (aka: licensed store) while in college. 

I refuse to recommend movies to people because I always end up recommending something inappropriate. 

I enjoy taking pictures.

I love the sun. But, at the same time, there is nothing like a rainy day 

I seem to change my hairstyle about as often as I rearrange my living room, which is more often than most people do either. 

I love comments and would love to hear from you. So, if you ever feel so inclined, drop me an email - jgrimbleby{at}
