About Me

Hi, I’m Jackie!

Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by! I’m a homebody, medical school wife, and health enthusiast! I share attainable tips about home and DIY projects, health/exercise, and personal marriage experiences about being married to a medial school student doctor. I strive to create a welcoming and warm community by giving women the confidence to try attainable projects and home/lifestyle tips, while also embracing that life isn’t always perfect.

With my husband in medical school, we are in a challenging season of life and aren’t on the most typical newlywed journey. But I have a passion for making wherever we are in life feel like home, and I’m hoping this inspires anyone else out there who may also be on a difficult journey!

My current life motto is, “Enjoy the journey as much as the destination” and I’m hoping my blog reflects that.



These are my two loved ones in my life! My husband, Brandon and my best girl, Tira (like Tiramisu)! Brandon is my rock. He’s chosen to become a physician and I could not be any prouder to join him on this journey.

I adopted Tira from the local animal shelter four years ago, and she was by far the best sporadic decision I have ever made! This girl has been with me through everything! She’s my best friend and I could not get through this life without her!




Thanks again for stopping by, I hope that my blog gives you some attainable inspo today!
