These Lovely Burbs


Hello! Thank you for stopping by my new blog!

If I haven’t had the pleasure to meet you, “Hi! I’m Jess”. My husband, Jordan, and I have been married for a little over 3 years and live in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. I work at a church overseeing fabulous volunteers and am blessed to partner with such a quality team of people to pursue and share God’s goodness! Jordan is a graphic designer, photographer, web designer extraordinaire. He’s the one responsible for this lovely little blog and is my very wonderful partner in this crazy adventure of life.

I’m excited to use this space to share projects, lessons learned in my DIY adventures, recipes, and my heart to embrace the loveliness in the everyday. We are just ordinary people living in a ‘track’ home in the suburbs of Portland. I am known to leave clean laundry all over our bedroom floor or dishes in the sink too long. See- ordinary person! But I hope to inspire you, as I have been inspired, to try new things, create, and live grateful for each small and lovely gift. We believe in developing and using the gifts and resources that God gave us, and our desire is that this little blog would be evidence of that.

A little glimpse into our journey of embracing the loveliness of the everyday…
