Hi and nice to meet you! My name is Jessica and I’m from a small town in Massachusetts and love sharing my unique multigenerational living lifestyle which all started in 2008.
How It All Started
Shortly after purchasing the new home, my grandfather passed away and my marriage ended. Boy, I had no idea what the next couple years had in store for me! If you had told me one year prior, that a year later my grandfather would die and my marriage would end AND I would meet an amazing guy (Jimbo!) and get engaged in 2020, I would have said “no freaking way!” I wrote a handful of blog posts during this time and you can read them below.
- Surviving separation , divorce and the death of my grandfather .
- 3.5 Generations and marriage proposal
- Answers to, “where have you been Jess and is everything ok?” – adjusting after divorce & 2nd job” and “Jess do you still like blogging?“
- Fast forward to 2023, we are modernize our home – finally!
Losing my grandparents who were like second parents to me and the end of my marriage all within the same 14 months just about caused me a nervous breakdown – literally. I am finally to a point in my life (2022) where I can talk about it without tearing up and not feel like a failure. It hasn’t been easy but the lessons I learned are invaluable.
My little blog that started off as a way to keep friends and family updated on life living with my grandparents and parents somehow turned into my full career and has landed us some pretty fun local and national features. We have been featured (see press features) in a variety of national publications, radio, print and online as well as magazine features. Over the years I have met some amazing people and now work with a variety of sponsors as well as contractual relationships for brand ambassadorship. Working with HomeGoods as a blogger, Better Homes and Gardens as a StyleMaker since 2013 and a freelance prop stylist for local and national brands has been a tremendous experience.
Some of the brands that we have worked with and/or currently works with are Home Depot, 3M, Shaw Flooring, Sherwin-Williams, Joss and Main, MasterBrand, HomeGoods, Wayfair, Better Homes and Gardens, Tylenol, Birch Lane, Proctor & Gamble, HomeRight, PineConeHill, Dash & Albert, Minted, Cree, Country-Time Lemonade, Flooring Decor, Kohler, Quaker, Ellios, Shaws supermarket, Whole Foods, Hood, Oreo, Old Elpaso, Folgers, New England Coffee, Jasco, Sears, Lightstream Banking, New Hampshire Travel and Tourism, Hinkley Lighting as well as a variety of smaller scale brands. See a list of full past and present sponsors here.
To wrap this story up, I want to say that I am grateful for all the relationships I’ve made over the years in this crazy little industry called “blogging” and am so happy you are here!
