About Me

Hi and welcome. My name is Jessica and I’m so glad you’re here. 

When I was trying to choose a name for my blog, I was commenting on a Facebook post when “unmeasured” fell off my keyboard about a group of people coming together for a common cause:

“A unity unmeasured.”

The more I thought about the word unmeasured, the more I loved it. 

Seems like often times we are trying to break out of the boxes that life tries to put around us. The thought of limitless sounds quite freeing!

Journeys are something we can all relate to. We are each on one, whether yours is straight forward, or more of the winding type of path. 

The awesome thing about that is, even in the differentness, there’s a chance we’re still connected. 

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a bit of an old soul. I have my feet planted firmly in my Iowa roots and family means a lot to me. 

I’d rather spend an afternoon with a teacup and a worn out quilt than be just about anywhere. Maybe you’re a bit of an old soul as well.

Whatever reason our paths crossed, thank you for joining this small town girl as I take the scenic gravel roads and write about such things. 

Mostly I hope to share ramblings of miracles, joys, and wonders. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really do appreciate that you are here!

  1. Jess – there’s something so special about being a small town girl… I am one and with an old soul too! You my dear have a true gift to be able to find the best in any circumstance and the ability to shed light on things to make one think hard about where we’ve come from and where we’re going. But most importantly, what we do along the way is what really counts and I love how you bring that into total perspective! You are truly a blessing to many. I can’t wait to follow along with you as you share your gift on this unmeasured journey with endless possibilities that you’re on.


    “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

    • I hope you start writing soon. You certainly have a way with writing. Made me imagine I was standing on one of those old dirt roads in Florida looking at your foot prints from when you were a kid.

      Since you, my parents, and some other kind souls already like my writing, I feel quite famous already. Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate them.


    • Oh my, thank you SO much for your kind words! That means a lot to me! I really do love close ups. Seems to bring a different perspective sometimes.

      I love your post called Rhythm of Color, those close ups and gorgeous pink flowers. I just have to tell you, I am loving your site! The thing about history is, we can all usually relate in some way or another, but I love how you really bring it to life with the old photographs and letters. I’m so grateful that I stumbled across your site. :)

      • Thank you right back!! :) I am completely overwhelmed. Last night I found letters written 127 years ago, written by my great great grandparents to their parents. They are copies, but priceless to what I am doing. I just shake my head…since others writing family history would kill for a collection like this. All I can say is Onward! and hope my children like what I am doing. Keep up those great photos. I’ll be watching. Happy New Year!

        • 127 years? That’s amazing. I read a story recently about throwing away sentimental letters and cards. It made me cringe just thinking about it! Not me, I’m a keeper of such things.What I love best is that our loved ones live on through stories, photos, and their letters. What a gift!

          Lucky kids! :)

  5. “Unmeasured” is the perfect term for your blog. I always want to keep reminding myself that it is all about the journey and not the destination.
    It is wonderful to meet you Jessica.
