Hi! I’m Jessica from Stay at Home-ista. I was so excited by the opportunity to share my house with all you Mustard Ceiling readers. I think it’s hard to image someone, and especially their home without seeing them, so here I am, complete with husband and three kids. As you can imagine, it’s impossible to get a photo where everyone is smiling:)
Here’s my quick story. I’m a Harvard-trained architect, now staying home with 3 small children (all under the age of 5 (I also have a love of parenthesis!)). I was lucky enough to be able to buy an empty plot of land, only 2 miles form where I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I designed and built our dream home. Throughout the process I acted as the Project Architect while my husband acted as the general contractor, so I probably know more about every nook and corner of our house than I would ever need to know! Now I’m in the decorating stage, spending my days mommy-ing, blogging, baking and occasionally craft-making. I’m putting my passion for design, food and family to work. I built the dream, but I still live in reality.
I have finally cleaned up my Living Room enough to be able to take “proper” pictures of it, you know, ones without children racing through the frame or a pillow fort on the couch.
