About the Meticulous Mama
The Meticulous Mama blog is a blog for families who are striving to live life on a deeper level. This blog is for those who want to discuss issues that hit the core of who we are as human beings. It is for those who are hungry to discover what makes their souls sing and their hearts dance.
At its core, The Meticulous Mama blog is a calling for everyone, especially parents, to discover and live an intentional life that is true to them.
Hi, I’m Suzanne Yang Jaochico. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful children. My husband and I have been married for five years. I couldn’t have asked for a more patient and loving life partner. My son aka Kuya is a strong-willed, imaginative and train-loving three-year-old. My daughter aka Sissy Boo is a determined, gracious and serious one-year-old. Without these three my life is incomplete.
Shortly after Sissy Boo was born I decided to go on a 3-week sugar detox in order to become healthier and to lose some of my pregnancy weight. Little did I know, this detox would literally change my life.
During the detox I began to learn more about food, the food industry and how food affects my body. I began to change the way my family and I ate by shopping primarily at farmers’ markets and adopting a whole-food plant-based diet. I took note of what I was putting into my body and in turn began to pay attention to what I was putting into other areas of my life.
As a result, I realized that all of my life I had been chasing after someone else’s dream – the stereotypical “American Dream”. I discovered that what I wanted in life was not ridiculous monetary wealth or a collection of physical things that proved how successful I was. What I truly wanted was freedom and time – especially with my family. Shortly after realizing this I made the decision to leave my career in Silicon Valley. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been one of the best decisions of my life.
I now vow to live life with as much intention as possible. This blog is my platform for sharing my imperfect intentional journey.
