Kerstin’s All-Time Favorite Posts

Hey all! We celebrated the third anniversary of the Jelly Bean Journals blog back in January. That’s more than 225 posts! In all of this time, I’ve never recapped my favorite posts. So, I took a look back at my favorite posts and shared little notes about why these posts made my favs list. Personally, for me, a huge part of starting this blog Continue reading

Mommy Juice: Casper’s Bloody Mary Drinks Tour #2

As promised, we have officially launched our third series, “Mommy Juice!” Our very first series, “Happy, Healthy & Loved. Stop the Mommy Wars!” was followed by “From the Mouths of Mommas” and both were a huge hit here on Jelly Bean Journals!

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers! Continue reading

I Talked to The Tall Mom & She’s Awesome

We are surrounded by incredible women and it’s a special treat when we get to share them with you. Many of you already know the awesomeness of the The Tall Mom, one of our favorite blogs. If you are a fan of that blog, the book Seeing Ione, or Jansen Curry, the fabulous creator of both, you are going to love today’s post!

I had the opportunity to ask Jansen a series of questions, Jelly Bean Journals style. From each of our blog’s headings, I had Jansen tell us about her own MommaKiddos and the Love of her life. Then, I got some Health advice, asked for Confessions and received some inside information on her book, in Everything Else mode. I have also included a bonus Seeing Ione question for those of you who have already fallen in love with the story! Continue reading

Lessons Learned, New Goals to Accomplish

How Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone Makes You a Better Mom

If you follow our Facebook page or read the blog last Tuesday, you are well aware that Chelse and I spent the weekend in Salt Lake at the 2015 Build Your Blog Conference. This was the first blog conference we have attended and being fairly new to the industry we weren’t quite sure what to expect. While we are really enjoying writing and sharing content with our community, there is tons to learn about blogging as a business, growing our blog, monetizing, photography and video. To say I was intimidated going into the conference was a pretty big understatement. Continue reading
