Hello, my name is Pam Jacobsen. I’m excited you’re here! This is where you can get to know a little bit about me. My husband, Rick, and I have been married for 39 years. (Does this mean that I am old??) We are from small towns in Iowa but live in Omaha, Nebraska.
3 girls and a boy
We have raised 3 daughters and one son: Lacey-34, Luke-30, Chelsea-28, and Calie-26 (pronounced with a long “a”). I love them immensely and am quite proud of each of them. You’ll hear about them from time to time. We had one more “daughter,” Annie. She was a cute 5-pound Malti-Poo. She left us in June 2018, after 15 years and 2 months. 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 Seahawks!), 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; they are only 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 desired 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. Here, I want to share the joy in the journey with you. 🙂
The LET’S TALK tab is where you’ll find my blog.
Blessings and blooms,
P.S. I’m going to be a first-time grandma in March!!!
