Hola Mommas! My name is Jessica, and I am a senior writer for CBMC. I was born and raised here in the Lone Star State. I am currently finishing up school at TAMUCC, majoring in English. I love reading and writing about life here in Texas. Corpus Christi holds a special place in my heart giving me a lifetime of memories. I love the originality of the Coastal Bend and the amazing people.
I met my husband here in Corpus Christi, together we are raising our daughter who turns 8 soon. I love everything about being a mother. My mother passed away last year and the past few years she was sick. Motherhood took on a deeper meaning for me lately as I reflect on my own experiences with my own mom. I grew up surrounded by some very strong, independent women who taught me so much about how to be a wonderful role model for my daughter. I learned from their experiences (failures and successes) and I try to show my daughter everyday how to be her own unique person. I can honestly say that being a mother is one of the greatest, hardest, most amazing things I have done in my life.
I love writing and being able to write with this group of gals is amazing. Having now been a part of the Coastal Bend Mom Collective for 2 years now, I have learned so much. I have gained some lifelong friends and expanded my mom-tribe considerably. During this blogging journey, I have learned a lot about other moms and their lives. None of us are the same, we have very different backgrounds, but we come together for the things we do have in common: Friendship, family, blogging, and motherhood.
