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.
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!
