Kelly Jones

I am a 30-something nurse who is a Hoosier born and raised. I love to take photos (as proven by my iPhone storage always being full) and can bake anything. I love house projects and decorating. My husband Brad might not enjoy it as much but he puts up with my many last-minute, random projects. We have two beautiful children, Camden, 8, and Charlotte, almost 3. We live in Fishers and have a Great Dane named Max. I'm going to school for my Masters in Family Nurse Practitioner. I am not sure what I want to do when I grow up. Being a FRIENDS guru is at the top of the list though.

Mediocrity for the Everyday Mom

Mediocrity is a crime nowadays. Its synonyms include moderate quality or value, ordinary and not very good. Not very good?! When did it become unacceptable to be average or ordinary? I think that sounds pretty darn...

Leaning All The Way In

I thought when I birthed my first child that that was the hardest thing I'd ever have to do. Boy was I wrong. Marriage is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Dating is...
