Hi there, welcome to the Short & Sweet blog! I’m Jess. I love Jesus, my husband, and my family. I’m married to a medical student, and I’ve learned to keep myself busy with a lot of hobbies! I am a super-organized extrovert whose love language is food. I’m always working towards a goal – OK, several goals – and I’m passionate about helping others achieve theirs.

In 2016, I married my high school sweetheart after dating for five years. After finding a full time job and having wedding planning taken off my plate, I had lots of free time on my hands. So I started my blog with a mission to do something fun and meaningful with my free time. For an entire year, I tried learning a new hobby or skill every month. You can read my recap here! 

I learned some great things in my year of challenges, but recognized I needed something different. Since getting married, I have had five jobs, moved across the country, and received a master’s degree. I’m a little busier than I was when I first started the blog, but my desire to try new things and continually better myself hasn’t changed. I’m also passionate about marriage in medical school, because it can be challenging to prioritize when your spouse is so busy!

In January of 2021, I released my first book, Rhythms of Relationship. It’s a guide for creating purposeful patterns to strengthen your marriage, and I would love for you to read it! Click here to get my book on Amazon.

Here is a quick summary of the topics I blog about:

I hope you enjoy reading my blog and following me as I tackle new goals and share my experiences as a med school wife!

    This sounds like a book in the making. Seems your future might be as an author. You will find your subject matter in this journey of trying one new thing a month. I loved the blog.
