Jess here. Your main gal and creator of Positively Oakes. I am a wife to a handsome man named Marcus, Mama to a sweet girl named Blake and baby boy, Nash.
I love a good Starbucks drink–seriously am obsessed, laugh at myself often and love writing every chance I get. I have literally kept a journal since I was 5 years old and my first journal entry read something like this, “Last night I slept over at Grandma’s house and it was fun”. Clearly, I have a way with words. 😉 I love taking pictures and just capturing our family here. I am generally somewhere between a happy dance and a nervous breakdown, but that’s what makes this all the more fun! I am pretty much an open book and like to keep things as real as possible. You can follow my family’s journey and read more about us, here.
I started Jess Oakes in 2012 for one sole purpose, realness. After blogging, blogging and blogging again (for a total of about 8+ years now..WOAH) with (several) different intentions and ideas I decided it was time to get serious. I started by blogging about my family, our infertility journey and life and it slowly evolved into a business and a career, which I am forever grateful for! Here, I chat about my life and journey in Motherhood, the home and everything in between.
If you’re a lady who loves family life, home decor, style and a little bit of everything in between you’ve come to the right place. Jess Oakes is a lifestyle blog where I chat about the good, the bad and the ugly, recommend the latest and greatest in products and like I said, keep it real and honest with you.
I can’t thank you enough for following along on my little journey and helping me make my dream a reality. I love you all!
