Limitless Possibilities

A sticker from my favorite coffee place. I love the dice and limitless possibilities. Dice represent a crazy Vegas trip I once had, dice for life. Limitless possibilities. I fully believe this, you are the only limit you have in this life.

Moving Again… But For A Good Reason

Moving with TBI sucks. It’s hard. I think it is for anyone, adding a brain injury with huge energy issues makes it so much harder. We sold our house and moved again just after 2 years. But this time we are financially ok. We are buying my parents home so they can retire and be […]

Tomorrow’s The Day- Moab Stand Up Paddle Boarding Trip

A funny thing happened when I packed my duffel, the straps were not long enough to carry it and I was so annoyed. Come to find out thanks to my husband, he’s like Jess it’s meant to be worn like a backpack! I added pics because it’s hilarious and I blame 🧠 injury on that […]

7 years! So grateful!

I am SO grateful that although I have lived a pretty wild life, always learning the hard way and making some pretty stupid decisions that I truly have learned to learn through my mistakes. However 7 years ago I learned to never drink and ride again, but at that time I hadn’t learned to stop […]

3 Year Reflection 🧠

Main picture is at 4:32 pm on 5/16/18. It’s the last picture from that day. 15-20 minutes later my husband would get a call from my friend that I was in a bad accident just before 5pm he got the call. On 5/10/21 we went out to look at some homes to put on my […]
