I’m Jennifer but my friends call me Jenn. I’m a stay-at-home mom, living in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and two sons. And I love to create…
Being a native California girl (more specifically the Bay Area of Northern California), my first loves are the ocean and the great outdoors from which I pull a lot of inspiration. I also love trying out new things.
Why I do what I do?
Besides the outdoors, live has been a great inspiration. Cheesy, I know! But after being married for almost a decade, life brought about new questions. What does it mean to be a stay at home mom? How do we live on a single-family income? What are some healthy, budget-friendly meals that my family would enjoy? How do I entertain my kids? Needless to say, I had to get creative.
I started pinning Pinterest ideas, reading blogposts on how-to this or how-to that, and watching a ton of YouTube videos. And then I tried a bunch of different things.
That’s my approach with life and the essentials. I may not be great at it. Mistakes are always made. But I keep trying. And when it’s finally reached on whatever level, that feeling of success is always pretty satisfying. My kids liked what I cooked (that had veggies in it); my husband enjoyed a new (healthy…shhh) dessert; a DIY party that everyone complimented on. All the effort was worth it! And what didn’t pass? Well, I still kept trying at it, with some tweaks.
But that’s what’s so great about trying something new or different. It’s exciting to see the result! Whether or not if it works.
Come try with me?
So, if you’re interested and want to have a little fun doing it, follow along with me and come try!! We can share our stories, our wonderful successes, and our comedic failures! Because through it all, it’s all just fun!
