Hello! I’m Cassandra.
Mom. Wife. CEO of Jones Household Inc. Seamstress. President of a Non-Profit, “The DEANA Foundation”. Writer of this blog.
These are a few of my titles.
One thing I’ve learned over the past several years is that sometimes life can be hard. Sometimes, life doesn’t just hand us lemons; sometimes life throws them right at us! What we do with those lemons is up to us. No one is immune to challenges and struggles. I have had to deal with my fair share of grief over the past few years…and a lot of hard losses. There came a point where I had to decide for myself how I would choose to deal with the lemons I felt were being thrown my way; I could either choose to let the bitter overcome me-to give in to the grief- or, I could choose to learn and grow from the challenges, to find the sweet and “make lemonade”.
After spending more than five years writing my award-winning blog “Dementia Diaries: A Journey With Dementia” (documenting my family’s journey with my mom’s early onset dementia), I decided it was time to focus on the sweeter things in life. So here I am, attempting to make homemade, Jonesmade Lemonade and writing about the sweet things in my life; my amazing kids and husband are at the top of the list! I am learning to find joy in the simple things of life: watching my kids play, snuggling up to a good book, getting out for a walk in nature. When I’m not tending to my family, you can find me in the kitchen baking, or in my craft/sewing room, usually working on orders for my etsy shop. I love to travel and visit new places, creating memories along the way. I have a passion for helping and inspiring others!
