Hey Friend, I'm

Jessica Rice

I

whole-heartedly believe in 4 hour dinners, planning parties so epic people talk about them for years. Going way over the top on gifts, dancing all of my stress away and raising our kids to live out love and kindness that can change the world. 

A Southern Girl living in San Diego’s Endless Summer! I left dental career path to travel the world with just a camera in hand and spent a year capturing the world’s greatest beauty. I’m a deep believer in waking up at 5 am to own my day, rocking every jumpsuit, losing track of time dining with friends and drinking tea until it fills my veins. I traveled the world in search of life’s greatest adventure and found it in my arms as I held my children. I’m here for you. Here for your adventure and here to share everything I’ve learned along the way.

Credit: Pinterest I’m sitting here on the brink of a beginning and an end. 2015 was full of a different kind of adventure than I’m use to, packed to the brim with boxes, fear, and accomplishment. This time a year ago we were making our way across the country with all of our possessions tucked […]
