Call me James

Call me James

Hi! Nice to meet you. I'm so happy you stopped by my home on the good 'ol web! Here are some little details about me. Enjoy! 


I was named after my grandfather, James. My real name is Jaime, but I love when people call me James. 


I have the most amazing husband, Jesse. We are high school sweethearts and have been together for 19 years! He completes me in every way - super cheesy, I know! We still date each other and I think that is the secret to any lasting relationship. 


I absolutely love animals! I would totally live on a farm surrounded by furry creatures. I have 2 cats and 1 dog. My cats, Benny and Reef, are both rescues. Quinn is a hunting dog, but mostly stalks dragonflies and leaves in the park!


I've been living with Crohn's disease since I was 9. I have good days and I have bad days, but at least I have days. I'm missing my gall bladder, appendix and 10 inches of my small intestine. I currently take Humira and inject every other week.

Are there any other Crohnies out there? If so, I would love to hear from you! 


I'm the youngest of 3 children. Holly and Wes are my oldest siblings and I'm so thankful for them both! They were both very protective of me when I was younger and the stories are quit funny! 


I LOVE Halloween! Honestly, I'm a little obsessed! I dress up every year and my favorite costumes are usually the ones I create from my own wardrobe. 


I'm really close to my parents. They are the absolute best! I love hanging out with them and just being around them makes my heart so happy! 


This past April, my husband and I took a 3 week adventure in our Jeep Wrangler! We visited Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and Missouri. A trip I will always hold close to my heart. Our country is so beautiful - get out and see it as much as you can! I can't wait until our next adventure!


I prefer beaches over mountains and summer over fall and winter. I believe that Salt water and a tropical drink can cure all woes. 


I have a dimple on my left cheek, but it only reveals itself when I smile. This is a feature I inherited from my grandmother, Billy!


Let's get personal! What makes you unique? Tell me about yourself in the comments below.
