Welcome!

Hi there, we are the Hillmanns! Glad you stopped by to visit with us.

I’m Jessa: the mommy of two, writer of this blog, and lover of ALL the espresso. I graduated with a degree in English from Christopher Newport University, and have been writing ever since. I’ve been published on websites such as Scary Mommy, TODAY Parents, Sarah’s Sage Advice, and the Hampton Roads Moms blog.

I have two little ones, a boy & a girl, and they are both wonderful bundles of energy! Born 14 months apart, they do everything together! (Which could either be adorable or trouble, am I right?) They keep me smiling, running, and reaching for my next caffeine hit but I wouldn’t change it for the world!

My husband and I have been married since October of 2012. I met him shortly after he arrived in Virginia from his homeland, Germany! (And for those of you wondering YES, he does have that sexy accent!) We settled down here in Virginia, where I was born and raised, and have an excuse now to travel to Germany whenever we please.

The posts I write are inspired by motherhood, my struggles with anxiety, and are infused with what I believe as a Christian.

Welcome to our little slice of heaven, our Happily Ever…Hillmann!
