About Me

I see you've found my About Me page. I guess that means you wanna know a little bit about me, eh?

Well firstly, my name is Jessica. I'm obsessed with penguins and purple, like, hardcore. I'm 20 years young, attending the University of Houston to major in Business. Probably MIS, although I can't really make up my mind. Honestly, I really just wanna be a  Mom someday. I grew up in a small country town, and I have a pretty big family. I'm blessed to have both parents, 1 older sister, and 4 younger brothers!

Am I taken? Why yes I am, and quite proudly, too. Joshua and I have been dating almost 3 years now. We met when he moved to my town in 4th grade, and started dating when we were seniors in high school. He attends UH as well, quite coincidentally I assure you, and we spend a lot of great time together. We've had our ups and downs, but I'm still head over heals in love with the man, and I couldn't be happier! Here's a recent snapshot of us at a friend's wedding in November:

Pretty handsome, isn't he? I know :)

I'd like to consider myself a pretty fun gal. I can be really reserved and shy at first though. I have recently become pretty obsessed with crafting, thank you Pinterest. So, under the influence of my older sister Marci (who's blog you can find here!), I've decided to blog about those crafts, as well as life in general.

So what's up with the blog name? Well here's a post about it!

A Zest of Jess!

Why, you ask? Well why not?

I've become addicted obsessed much more interested in crafting lately, and I want to share some of those things with you. Also I'd like to share the daily ramblings of this small town girl living in a big city, head over heals in love with a Godly man, and trying to obtain success at the University of Houston. Oh, lucky lucky you.

But why A Zest of Jess? Well that's pretty simple if you ask me. You see, my name is Jessica. Or, as I prefer to be referred by, Jess. And well, I'd like to think that I add a little zest to life. What is zest, you ask? Why my good reader, zest is: 

  1. an enjoyably exciting quality. 
  2. keen relish; hearty enjoyment; gusto.
  3. an agreeable or piquant flavor imparted to something.
  4. anything added to impart flavor, enhance one's appreciation, etc.
  5. piquancy; interest; charm.
  6. liveliness or energy; animating spirit.

So there you have it; take it or leave it. I think I prefer definition #6 myself. But hey, who's to decide?

I hope you find some sort of inspiration or get a good laugh (maybe even a tear!) from my blog. Don't be afraid to ask me anything! God Bless!
