About & Contact
Hi, I'm Jessica. I'm a Harvard-trained architect who is now happily a stay at home mother of three kids under 5.
Being a stay at home mom can be an empty landscape of sippy cup refills, feeding babies, sleep deprivation, sleep training, and more. But just like any good fashionista puts her personal spin on fashion, this is my spin on staying at home. Being at home is fun, with a flare for design, food, and a focus on family.
In May 2011 we moved into our dream house, a house that took four years, from the start of design to completion. My husband and I both studied Architecture at Harvard (that's where we met), so while I designed the house and functioned as the Project Architect, he had tons of input and acted as our General Contractor. That plus having two kids kept us pretty busy for a number of years.
Now that we are settled into our house, and I gave birth to our third in November of 2011, I wish that I had taken the time (where would I have found it?) to document the process. This is my chance. Here you will find details about our house, fun decorating projects, food ideas, kid projects, pretty much my life in pictures.
I designed the dream, but we are still living in reality.
I'd love to hear from you! You can email me at stayathomeista (at) gmail (dot) com
