dreaming dreams from all perspectives

Hello, everybody! My name is Mikka Roque-Jacobson, and welcome to my blog! I am a 29-year- old new mama married to a loving and supportive husband, born and raised in the Philippines, now living in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago.

Besides being the best homemaker I was created to be, I enjoy creating content online. I make YouTube videos about being a new mom, try to curate my Instagram and learn about digital media. Besides being social online, I have my online shop called Raw by Roque where I sell vegan soaps and other bath & body products made with organic luxurious butters. I also enjoy drawing like a child and writing letters for The Letter Project.

Before becoming a mother, I was an English as a Second Language teacher, a fitness instructor and a ballroom dance teacher/competitor.

I am most proud to call myself a CHILD OF GOD.

Welcome to my space where I document whatever I can by typing out my journey as a new mama, stuff about our Baby Bear and products we like!

I am not an expert at any of this, just a new mom trying to remember this ride with the hopes of helping you with yours!


But those who hope on the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

Let’s build a community of loving, compassionate & encouraging new mamas TOGETHER.
