I’m Jacey. I’m married to Michael. We live in Charleston, South Carolina. When we met, I lived in San Luis Obispo, California. That’s what love does to you.
I love red wine, exercise, and podcasts.
I’ve been in a career crisis since I graduated from college, which is to say I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I think this blog is part of the plan. :)
I love my close friends and family, but I guess that goes without saying- who doesn’t? I am as loyal as a golden retriever. I will remember your birthday.
I also have a golden retriever. His name is Jack, and he’s precious. He reminds me that there’s really no reason not to be beside-yourself-excited just at the prospect of waking up in the morning.
Unlike Jack, I’m an introvert, but only slightly. Deep, one on one conversations over coffee energize me, but I stay in the background at loud parties. I often hang up the phone or leave an interaction thinking I stumbled through it, but writing gives me the time I need to communicate with exactness. So don’t be surprised if you meet me in person and I seem less “together.”
I am an old soul, or so I’ve been told. The first time someone told me that, I thought she said old shoe, and I’ve never quite been able to escape the image. I’ve spent most of my life wishing I was carefree, or quirky, or funny. Since I’m an old shoe instead, I offer that perspective.
I finally know that some of these “personality” traits are actually spiritual. I don’t take it lightly when I stumble upon some wisdom usually reserved for someone older, because I know that God has given me a unique treasure. This is an “about me” post, but I can’t express myself without acknowledging God.
I am a recovering people pleaser and sweet tooth. Over indulging in the opinions of others and sweets both give me stomach aches.
I am a seeker with a quiet strength, strong convictions and a smile.
This has been difficult to write, but I always appreciate blogs that I feel are connected to a real person on the other end, so I felt I owed you that.
