Hey Mama! So good to "meet" you! My name is Jessi Cross and I am excited to share a little bit of our life and story with you. First off, a little about me. I am married to my passionate, dream chasing, entrepreneur husband Joe and we live in Minneapolis with our two little ladies. Our daughter Anniston will be 2 in October and our little lady Selah is just about 4 months old. I know I don't have to explain this to you, being a mom gives us a deep understanding of each other's hearts. These are my people, my treasures and my greatest honor in life outside of being made new in Christ is being their mama. They have changed me for the better and I am who I am because of them.

I have truly fallen in love with the mission and heart of Thrive Moms. The greatest ache of my heart since becoming a mom has been to know and commune with other moms. To breathe life into them and to experience grace from their friendship. These ladies have amazing hearts and vision and I genuinely love that I get to be a part of it! I have connected with some of you and have loved getting to see your life, "meet" your kids and share in your joys and struggles. My grandma stopped me in a hard moment the other week and reminded me, these are the best years of my life. Raising my family, investing in my legacy, this is the hard work and the good work and I am so thankful I don't have to do it alone!

I still feel like I am getting my feet wet in this online world but I also feel like I am ready to jump in head first. Right now, I blog at Suzie Studios, a blog I started as a way to promote my shop but it has become one of my greatest life-givers. I'd love for you to stop by! This next month I am starting a 31 days series I'm calling "Resurrected Dreams". The series is made up of what I call "out-takes" or tangents from the e-book I have been writing this summer. A book about our story. I hope it gives you a taste of who I am and gives you a peek into God's redemptive story in our lives. I hope my blog does the same.

As far as that little shop that got me engaging online. She is getting a little revamp. The shop started as a creative outlet, something for me to do during my daughters naps, something that would bring me life. After taking time to really pray and think about what I enjoy most, what brings me the most life I have decided to start fresh with a new shop. This shop will be full of little lady apparel made with fabric I have designed myself. I am so excited to see how everything turns out and to share it with you in November! If you find me on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter you can be sure you will hear about it!

My other online endeavor is The Tethered Crate. My friend Megan and I started The Tethered Crate out of a love for the handmade market and a desire to promote shops like ours. I get so excited thinking about women using their gifts to create. There is something that comes alive in them and they are better women, wives, moms and friends because of it. We want to partner with them in their desire to get their products in the hands of consumers. We have bought into the concept that "go-givers" sell more. Being generous with your product to see your shop grow. The Tethered Crate is one way we see that happening.

I guess that is more of our heart and vision, for the details you can visit our site.
