Thinking of our Carolina beaches today. I know there are lots of donation centers and ways to help out there! If anyone is in need/knows anyone in need of food/winter jackets/household items/paying a bill please message me. Everyone needs a little help sometimes. I know I’ve been there before. Even if it doesn’t have direct relation to the storm I’m here!
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” -Bruce Lee
It’s a lazy, rainy Sunday at the Carter house. Got up this morning did yoga and made strawberry pancakes. Now I’m editing, watching Nicholas Sparks movies, drinking Shirley temples and eating all the hurricane snacks. Later we will watch football and drink watermelon margaritas! How are you spending your Sunday?

Hi instagram friends! I realized it has been awhile since I’ve shown my face around here. Here are a few facts about me: 1. My name is Jessica but I’ll answer to Jessi, Jess, Mose, Moses and Moser. My maiden name is Mosley, hence the nicknames. 2. I’m an introvert but you could easily mistake me for an extrovert in certain situations. I need a lot of alone time to recharge. 3. Speaking of alone time, I grew up as on only child of a single Mom and spent a lot of time living at my Grandma’s house. Shout out to all the strong women out there! 4. I’ve had a lot of jobs in my life. I’ve been a babysitter, a jeweler’s assistant, an Express salesperson, a photographer, a CNA, a nurse, an administrative assistant, a factory worker and a temporary staffer. 5. I am a Mom to one daughter. My daughter will be 14 next weekend! Happy almost birthday Ava. Photo by the talented @megantravisphotography at @the_prettiest_pieces_studio Makeup by @faceforwardnc
Hurricane Checklist: ✅ Water ✅ Wine ✅ Bread ✅ Peanut Butter Can y’all think of anything else I would need? 😆 Really, we are taking this storm seriously and I was so glad to hear the news that @lifewithannie & Leo have evacuated and are safe. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to leave your home and belongings behind. Praying for everyone!
