Welcome to 'Just Jaym'

Hey Everyone!

   Welcome to my little piece of the internet!

A couple years ago I wrote a blog, where I generally wrote about being a Mom to a precious little girl. I wrote religiously for about a year and it fell off after that. I felt obligated to just write about being a Mom as it was titled after her (Kaylees-Korner). So here I am, 2 years later starting a new blog! I thought about it for months... Tried to come up with a name... Thought about whether I should write something where everyone knew it was really me or if that would cause me to filter what I wrote. You know, the "oh man, I can't say that, my Mom is going to read this" mentality.

At the end I decided to create a blog that was honest, real and just me. Just Jaym.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me introduce myself with some Q & A's.

Name: Jaymie Doole, AKA Jaymie Flowers. I am in the process of changing my last name to Flowers, however, I seem to be having slight trouble letting go of Doole. Much to my husbands distaste of course.
Age: 27
From: I grew up in Ontario, Canada until I was 18. I then moved to Quebec for a year before deciding on attending university in Nova Scotia. I finished Univsersity and have remained here. It has been about  9 years and we absolutely love it.
Occupation: I am in Sales.
Married or Single: 2 years ago I married my highschool sweetheart! Jordon is tolerant of my constant desire to try crazy things, random trips I decide to go on and my slight OCD with regards to cleaning my house. He supports all of my crazy ventures and I love him with my whole being.
Children: Jordon and I have an beautiful little girl named Kaylee who came into this world just over 3 years ago. She is the perfect blend of Jordon and I with her incredible independence and wonderfully soft heart.
What is this blog going to be about:While I believe a part of this is yet to be determined, I know the direction I would like this blog to go. I have a tremendous love for food in all ways- cooking, eating, preparing, grocery shopping. I will post recipes of new things I try and also those favorites that we love. Going hand in hand with my love for food, comes my battle with weight. I want to loose about 40 ish pounds. Every year that passes I seem to put on a couple more pounds and I am finally at the point where I just feel tired of being the chunky/chubby/big Jaym. I want to be the fit Jaymie. Also, I will inevitably write about my family. My little family I have here in Nova Scotia, and my family I miss on a daily basis in Ontario.

All in all, I think this is a good indication of what 'Just Jaym' will be about. I certainly hope you stick around to see whats to come! I would love any comments, questions or feedback  anyone out there may have! Check out a couple pics of me and the fam! Thanks for stopping by!


This is me!

  1. You guys are adorable! I am also looking to lose weight, about 30-40 lbs and am almost done the couch to 5K program. I'm hoping to add some yoga to the mix to tone up and shed the lbs. I'm looking forward to reading your blog and following you on your journey. Good luck!
