Hello, my name is Pam Jacobsen. I am excited you are here! This is where you can get to know a little bit about me. My husband, Rick, and I have been married for 38 years. (Does this mean that I am old??) We are from small towns in Iowa but live in Omaha, Nebraska. We have raised 3 daughters and one son: Lacey-33, Luke-29, Chelsea-27, and Calie-25 (pronounced with a long “a”). I love them immensely and am quite proud of each of them. You will hear about them from time to time. We had one more “daughter,” Annie. She was a cute 5-pound Malti-Poo. She left us this past June. See our pictures below.
I have a personal, growing relationship with my Savior, Jesus. I love attending my growing, vibrant church and especially singing awesome worship songs!
Some of my favorite things include flowers, mountains, white fluffy clouds, starry skies, green trees against a bright blue sky, watching football (especially the Broncos, Seahawks, and Panthers!), babies and most anything small, the colors periwinkle and pink, coffee, walking, reading, music, (including singing in a choir. I LOVE musical harmony!) and movies. Cleaning, not cooking, gets my vote! I like mint-flavored things: Starbucks Peppermint Mocha, mint-flavored whipped cream, minty dark chocolate, Mint Oreos…you get the picture. (I know, I know, these are not good for me; they are rare treats.) 🙂
As a kid, I went to 9 different schools (in three different states) between kindergarten and 6th grade. My stepdad got transferred a lot. In contrast, all my children lived in the same house all their lives until they each moved out. When Lacey was 3 and I was pregnant with Luke, I quit my accounting job and have been at home ever since. I homeschooled my kids and enjoyed it! I have done lots of different things to earn income from home: a 7-day a week paper route, vending machines, and trading the stock market.
I decided to start a blog for several reasons. I love anything to do with words: books, reading, writing, editing, paper, pens, pencils, phonics, etc. Oh yeah, and now keyboards. 🙂 Therefore, I thought it would be fun and a good place to write and document some things. Also, I love to encourage others in many ways, so I am hoping this is just one more way to be an encourager. As I’m on this journey of life, I desire to grow and develop into a better person and would like to share what I’ve learned and have been through to hopefully help you along the way. 🙂 The LET’S TALK tab is where you will find my blog.
Blessings and blooms,
