Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Jessie. I am a young mother, wife, blogger and boutique owner from Southern California.
“Little girls with dreams become women with vision!”
As a little girl, I experienced a lot of instability and hardships. My mom was a single parent, my dad was never in the picture. My mom got married when I was 7 and had my youngest sister. When I was 12, my step-dad died of a heart attack, I helplessly watched him die. My mother was now a single parent of 3, worked two jobs and tried to hold it together for my sisters and me. Luckily my grandparents were there to help.
At the age of 17, I became pregnant and had my son the Fall after my highschool graduation. I was in an abusive relationship for years and finally walked out when I was 2 months pregnant. By this time I was 19 and absolutely devastated. Financially, emotionally, physically. Unfortunately, the abuse escalated and I filed for a restraining order to protect my children, my family and myself. I probably would’ve been dead had I not filed. It was surely the most depressing and hardest years of my life.
I was a single mom for a few years. I worked, went to school, obtained my college degree. My family was very supportive during these hard times. I later met my now-husband and he took in my children as his own and changed my life. I am so grateful.
The reason why I started this blog is to bring inspiration. I want to show others that may be facing hardships that anything is possible. That you can come out of that hole and be better, live better, become a better person.
Just a few years ago, I would’ve never believed that I’d be where I am now. With stability, family, love and pursuing my dreams. Truly, God is everything and I am forever grateful.
I started blogging a couple of years ago. I took a break, lost most of my content and decided to get back into it in January 2020. In August 2019 I decided to follow my dreams of starting an online business and launched Evening Primrose Boutique. It surely has been a learning experience and has kept me busy but I love every bit of it. I want to teach my children to become independent, work hard and follow their dreams.
