ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Jessica.

 

Graphic Designer and Event Coordinator by day, crafter and wanderluster by night.

I work hard, but I also make sure to take time to enjoy myself. Have you been swimming with alligators, watched a meteor shower on the beach, walked barefoot in the grass at Stonehenge, or gone down a natural water slide on a mountain in Maine? I have.

What's life for if you don't take the time to enjoy it?
