Meet The Dreamer


Welcome to my little corner of heaven here at the House of Dreams and Love. My name is Jasmine and I’m so very excited that you decided to park your behind here for just a second and discover the quirks, craziness and decoration nation I love to call my life {smiles}.

Where to begin?!

I guess the beginning right? I was born in Texas twenty something years go, but sashayed my little self across the globe thanks to my father’s Army career (Hoo-rah!). I’m talking Germany, France, North Carolina, Colorado, California and Italy all before I finished high school! It was a whirlwind of a childhood but I have friends all over the world because of it.

Some Random Tidbits

Me in one ridiculously long run on sentence: I am a chocolate lover, scary movie screamer, hopeless romantic, Grey’s Anatomy dreamer, CrossFit do-er, ninja lover and his “no one’s ever touched my soul like you do” slice of heaven kind of love.

I am a full time Sonographer (not just on pregnant ladies!) and I love every part of my job… except maybe doing prostate checks **cries a little bit**. My other half is Michael (who you will soon have the pleasure of meeting) and we live in good ol’ El Paso, Texas. Our little family is completed by our shitzhu, Lily, who thinks she is an actual princess human being. We are just mere peasants in her world. Also, I used to be a ninja crossfit girl…look…see…told ya. (Ignore the oh-so-flattering struggle faces!)

Also also, I used to be a ballerina in college.

Meet My Trusty Sidekick Michael

He is a wearer of many hats. A few include but are definitely not limited to chef/ninja/coach/artist. He really is the peanut butter to my jelly and my strongest and most unwavering supporter. All we do is laugh with (and at) each other. All. Day. Every. Day. {Sigh} Thank you universe.
We met at the gym where I used to work in 2014 and have been inseparable big ninja/little ninja ever since. I’ve heard the saying “opposites attract”, but that could not be further from the truth for us. We have so many things in common and whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same.

The Momentary Nest

We live in an itsy bitsy cozy one bedroom apartment, but with a little luck and a lot of saving we hope to buy our first house together by the end of the year (fingers crossed you guys!)

The Why

If you stay for even a snippet of time on my blog you will notice my love for home decorations, D-I-Y projects, and organizing. I’m a sucker for all things holidays, pretty, and labeling! I have bins and bins and bins of arts and crafts supplies just begging to be unleashed.
The idea of rounding up all this creativity into one spot and blogging about it first crossed my mind last year. A little ripple of a thought popped into my head singing something to the tune of “hey you are good at this stuff… why not try it out? You know, nothing too fancy.” I just wanted a fun and creative outlet to document all these crazy decorating projects I find myself trying to tackle.
I was sitting in the car with Michael when I decided to send my idea his way. I let the words roll around in my mouth for a second before I finally mustered up the courage to say “I think I want to start a home decorating blog.” In all honesty, even just saying it out loud was a little scary and a little nerve racking. I knew nothing about blogging! I wouldn’t even know where to start!
But of course, my partner in crime calmed my hundred mile per hour mind with his reassuring words, “I think that would be a great idea. You’re good at anything you put your mind to.” Ugh, I love this man.
