The Exceptionally Ordinary Life

About Me

I'm Jessica Sawyers,

founder of The Exceptionally Ordinary Life blog, and I am super excited to have you here!

Before you dive in, I’d like to share a few tidbits of who I am with you so you can get to know me a bit better. For example, my given name is Jessica, but all my friends call me Jess, and since I am hoping to become your new online friend, I want you to call me that as well 😉

Now, friend, if you’d please scroll down a bit, you will find a few odd pieces about me, and even some crazy/cool/weird pics of me with my family!

First of, as most women, I have many roles in life. These roles include, but are not limited to:

Now a few random facts...

Here are a few candid pictures of my family. Yes, I am the weirdo making a crazy face while holding the Azkhaban sign. No, I cannot bend over backwards to pick up a handkerchief anymore. Or maybe I can... I just don't think I can get back up after 😀

About Me

How I wish to be of help to you:

One of the biggest struggles in my life is with organization, which also affected my personal finances. Of all the things my Mom took care of teaching me right, being organized, and staying on budget was not one of them

As a result of that lack of organization, we often struggled and lived in a constant state of inner unrest. Don’t get me wrong: we were happy, and loved each other fiercely. But we were always messy (including our finances). No, I am not blaming my Mom for my own decisions. She was an amazingly loving and caring mother. I am just pointing out that oftentimes what we live as kids, bleeds into our adult lives. I know it did into mine, both the good and the bad. 

Thru lots of struggles, headaches, lost tempers because of the less-than-ideal home organization, being late all. the. time., wasting money on takeout, and of course, bank overdrafts, I finally decided I have had enough. I by no means have a perfectly organized home & life. But I have learned quite a bit, enough to make our life not just doable and livable, but also enjoyable, and peaceful. 

I would love nothing more than to have you join me in this learning adventure. Yes, learning, because what makes life wonderful and worth living is to always continue to learn, grow & improve ourselves and our spaces.

Lastly, if like me, you have been struggling with getting your family's finances in order, I have a little something to help you get started where you should: by talking to/with your family about money.
