First off, THANK YOU for reading this! There a million other things you could be doing right now, but you are here reading this. So THANK YOU!
This blog was created to bring you all sorts of fun, valuable information. Whether that is about workout gear, food choices or the honest truth about supplements. I am excited to share some fun info with y’all about all these things!
But first I wanted to give you a little information about myself, Jamie Lynn Smith (NO my mother and father did NOT name me after Jamie Lynn Spears! She was named after me. 🙂 JK)
After Madrid, we returned back to Texas late February of 2014, where we planned to get an apartment and begin our life together. We had set a date for our wedding, August 2, 2014. (We got engaged July 26, 2013 so while we were in Switzerland, my dad, mom and sister were all helping us plan the wedding in Lincoln) The details were pretty much all done. Save the dates had been ordered and I planned on mailing these out our first week back to the states.
The following morning after arriving back home, we opened our bag to get the money we had been saving for all these wonderful plans but it was gone. All of it. We had so many plans… get an apartment, help pay for the upcoming wedding… but plans had changed. Just like that. That day was on of the most devastating and life changing days I will never forget. I am not going to lie, we cried! A lot! But the next day, we sat down together took out a computer and started looking for jobs. Within a week, we each had 4-5 jobs lined up. We hustled. And we did it together with the support and love of our families right next to us. We did have to move the wedding back until the following May but it was a huge relief.
