About

Hey there, Friend!

I'm Jaclyn, owner and creator of The Dotted Nest.

My husband and I have two precious (although somewhat demanding) little girls. Our life is crazy and busy and chaotic, but I wouldn't have it any other way, and I'll miss it when my girls are grown up and gone - at least that's what I keep telling myself in the midst of crazy!

I LOVE coffee with extra cream please! I can't get through a morning or a day without at least 1 cup...but usually it's 2 (or more!). They aren't kidding when they say Moms run on coffee.

Farmhouse/Cottage Chic, Shabby Chic/Rustic Vintage/Vintage Modern...whatever you want to call it, it's my favorite decor style!

Creativity is what keeps my life full of joy, (aside from my husband and daughters!).

I enjoy playing with Photoshop and Illustrator and designing wall art to hang in my home.

I bake cupcakes and cookies...any kind of cookies...but if you were to ask my family and friends which cookies I'm most known for, it would be my mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.

I'm picky. If there's a product I like and share with you, you can be sure it's passed my approval process! Ha! You can find my "recommended list" here.

I'm a doula and birth photographer in my other life, and I love every second of it! It's always a huge privilege and honor (and not one I take lightly) to be invited to someone's birth space and be able to witness a new life entering the world.

Pink is my absolute favorite color, although aqua is probably my favorite to decorate with...followed closely by ALL the colors. Obviously I have a love of polka-dots too!

I have a thing for exclamation points and commas. I probably over use them quite often, and to all the English majors and professors out there, I am sorry! It's a bad habit that I'm working on, but if I'm being truly honest it's probably here to stay.
