ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN AND MOON
Hey there, friend! My name is Jessica, and I am so happy you stopped by! First I should explain how The Mountain and Moon blog was created. My husband and I lived, met, and got married in Atlanta, Georgia. My husband has a strong and deep connection to the mountains of Colorado, and I soon adopted that same love too. The day we got married, we packed up my car full of all our things and drove off into the night after our wedding to start the biggest adventure of our lives. We spent our first few days as newlyweds moving across the country to live out our dreams in Colorado. With a lot of free time on my hands and not knowing many people, I was looking for a creative outlet and wanted a way to keep our family and friends in-the-loop. Thus, The Mountain and Moon was created. Since this blog was born we have paid off all our debt and moved back to Georgia to buy our first house.
On this blog you can read about my two passions: home design and living a debt free life. Instagram and Pinterest are full of beautiful images that can either leave you feeling inspired or sad. For me, I felt defeated looking at all those beautiful images because I knew I couldn’t afford the gorgeous furniture and accessories. You never know what the story is behind those photos. Did they take out a second mortgage to renovate the space? Do they have investors? Did they put it all on a credit card? Maybe they paid as they went, but the point is you never know how they paid for it! For Brett and I, taking out debt (other than our mortgage) is not an option. So I am here to document our efforts in achieving a beautiful, livable home sans debt. I will be completely transparent with money here. I’ll tell you how long and how much money each project cost. My hope for all the readers out there is to see that you don’t have to borrow money to renovate or make a home beautiful.
