A View from River Mountain is a humorous lifestyle blog which contains a lot of different subject matter; including crafts, organizing, decorating, but most often my twisted opinion.
My name is Jessica and I do actually have a view from River Mountain. River Mountain is a community that overlooks the Arkansas River Valley. Although the view from River Mountain is indeed a beautiful scene, this blog is less about what I can see out my window and more about my blissful opinion of the world beyond that.
I've spent years in the workforce as a computer programmer/software developer as well as other various technical positions. I hope to use my experience in both technology and surviving as a working mom to give all of you some pointers. Maybe you can learn from my mistakes.
Now, on to the more important part of my life...my family.
I am blessed to have found a mate that both challenges and inspires me. I feel like we compliment each other perfectly. After over 20 years of marriage one would think we would know everything about each other but not the case. Mr. D is still a mystery to me. I tell him that often. But life would be boring otherwise.
Together Mr. D and I have 3 lively children (Abbi, Ethan, & Seth Isaac). I miss the days when they were young and I had more control but I am very much enjoying seeing them grow as young adults. I take pleasure in whom they have become because I know they are these people because of me. I pray I have done a good job...and so far, so good.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope I can interest you in a conversation or two. If you have any questions or would just like to say hi send me a line at jessica.downum(at)gmail.com.
