My name is Jackie, friends call me Jax.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
In 2006, I married the man of my dreams. Well, ok – the second man of my dreams after the first dream ended in divorce (umm.. ok, third actually, if you count the broken engagement I had when I was 26). Seems the first and second men of my dreams both have the same name, but that can be handy sometimes.
With my Huzbo came a mini-me son (a 2-for-1 deal) who lives with us half of the time and who is brilliant, often makes me laugh but sometimes makes me cry. Just like any kid, right? I always wanted children (that call ME mommy) and my husband wanted more children, so after we married, we marched off to the fertility specialist for a year of unsuccessful treatments. Our fertility failures did lead us to the most amazing journey of our life – adopting our daughter. Our brilliant daughter has been a part of our family since 2009 and is the joy of my life, and sometimes the cause of my pillow being soaked with tears. Seems to be a bit of a recurring theme with children, doesn’t it?
So, here we are at my blog. My crazy, busy, wonderful, brutal life. My sweet and fruity stories – my papaya. My spicy, salty mash-up of everything – my jambalaya.
My Papaya Jambalaya – hope you enjoy reading about it!
