Hello, I’m Jessica. Welcome to CanYouPixelThis!
In 2006 I left everything I knew and moved to Texas. There, I put down roots and I made friends that became family. My husband, kids and I established traditions, like going to the Christmas tree lighting in Sundance Square. There were so many things I loved about living in Texas that I never imagined what it would be like to live anywhere else.
In 2012 we moved to Washington State. We rented this cute little three bedroom house with green shaggy carpet. We quickly discovered we needed something more. And I’m not saying more shag carpet! We needed to see more of Washington! That move changed my life in ways I never could have imagined. It’s as if I was seeing the world for the first time. And really, I was. Growing up I rarely left Michigan. In fact, I was the first of several generations to move away. Now I was seeing things my family never had and I knew I needed to document it.
I mean, at 29 I was seeing mountains and the Pacific Ocean for the first time! Moving to these new places really made me look at life differently. It made me want to travel in ways I never expected. So we did what any sane person would do. In 2013 we bought an RV and made it our home! In five years we have traveled to 23 different states and 3 different Countries.
All of that to say, this is CanYouPixelThis! Through my website I’ll share photos of my family, our travels, and the people we meet along the way. I hope to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire!
