Jamie resides in Knoxville, TN with her husband, Joe, and her 3 kids - Eva, Alexandra (Alex) and Ozzie. When she is not doing SAHM things you can find her watching movies, drinking wine, having fun with neighbors and writing. She also has a dusty blog at My Groggy Bloggy that she hopes to revive, along with other writing endeavors! Her favorite smell is marshmallows from the outside of the bag and her least favorite feeling is walking barefoot on all the crumbs on her floor.
