My name is Jessica and I want to welcome you to my chaotic, exhilarating, roller coaster of a life - a life I constantly find myself blessed beyond words to be living. I grew up in Connecticut, where I learned faith & family are the most important things in the world, my girlfriends will forever be the sisters I never had, baseball is & always will be in my blood, and that I'm such a sucker for the sun, all things sweet, furry and full of carbohydrates. I studied marketing and public relations in college, moved to NYC for a summer internship with my best friend. Then moved to Italy on a whim to be an Au Pair, and when that didn't work out, I took a trip to Southern California which turned out to be the staycation of a lifetime.
Oh, and I just so happen to be in love with the sweetest, most handsome and amazing man - ever.
Josh and I met in the summer of 2012 when a friend of mine convinced me to take a road trip with her to Kodak, TN. Although it didn't take much convincing, we packed up the car and trekked eight hours from Pennsylvania to Tennessee. Let me rewind a bit -- Josh is an outfielder currently in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system, and was with the Cincinnati Reds when we first met. He made the Southern League All-Star team that year, and that is why Cassandra and I made the journey to the Tennessee Smokies Stadium. I'll never forget the moment Josh and I were introduced, much like he'll never forget how I almost had my head taken off by a bat during the 5th inning of that special game. After the break ended and Cassandra and I packed up our things, Josh and I exchanged numbers and within a few weeks; my first trip to Pensacola was booked. The rest, is history. History full of so many ups and probably even more downs, sacrifices and compromises, & most importantly - the most blissful, unapologetic love. So we welcome you to follow along on our journey! We may never know where we're headed or what will happen - where home will be or how long we'll be on this minor league roller coaster, but we can promise you one thing; it is one hell of a ride that we couldn't be happier to be a part of - and one you do not want to miss out on!
With lots of love, and reminding you (and us) to always take life -- One Pitch at a Time,
