About Me

Hi! I’m Jackie and I’m so glad you found your way to Jackie’s Joie de Vivre.

I started this blog as a way to document all the things that bring joie (joy) to my life like food, adventures, teaching, love, and Disney. I hope my musings bring some joy into your life.

My Story

For as long as I can remember I have been following different lifestyle blogs and thinking to myself I should try this myself. My first attempt at blogging began in 2013 but with the distractions of work and college I couldn’t find the time to maintain it. Since then I’ve graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Florida International University, met the love of my life and pursued my dream career path, helping children with developmental disabilities.

In the past 5 years I have realized I have acquired a lot of useful knowledge and experiences in an array of topics that could be beneficial to others. This blog will serve as a way for me to document all the things that bring joy to my life while sharing recipes with family, dating advice with friends and travel recommendations to anyone that seeks it.
