Hello! I’m Jessica Scharff. A Northern California native currently residing in Dallas, TX. I have major heart eyes for coffee, animals, sweet treats, art, other people’s babies and making a mess.
Faded Sentiments initially began in November 2009 as a place to record stories from my day-to-day life, share photos of my home and loved ones and write without constraint. At the time, the blog served as an honest representation of the often chaotic scene constantly unfolding inside my mind. As such it tended to be somewhat…disheveled in content, but I was enjoying myself!
Since then I have spent six months living in the 7th arrondissement of Paris (mais oui, je parle français!), written award-winning articles as a features staffer for The State Hornet, dabbled with a variety of (now defunct) blogs, worked as the news editor of The American River Current, graduated (finally) with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a minor in French from California State University, Sacramento, and moved 3,000 miles across the country (on my own!) to live in beautiful Dallas, TX.
Thank you for reading!
