Hey Friend, I'm

Jessica Rice


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.

The last few days have been tough. I’ve wept alongside stories of loss, mothers whose wombs and arms are left empty. Friends who have miscarried. Strangers who have experienced tragedy. October 15th is a day of remembrance for so many beautiful, strong, and courageous women. As I read story after story I was reminded of how […]

If you’ve ever traveled with me, let me stay in your home, road tripped with me or carpooled to work you know the truth about me. I am a bag-aholic. Every morning is like packing for the apocalypse. Gym Bag. Lunch Bag. Purse. Computer Bag. Recycling bag. Bag for my bags.. The struggle is real. […]
