He has lost so much through the years & yet he remains an ETERNAL optimist.

He is generous, kind,  incredibly smart & so fair.

 I was voted class dreamer in HS.

(Seems fitting:))

My first car (I bought myself) was a white  VW Cabriolet, remember those?

It was such a lemon, but it was fun while it lasted:).

I loved being pregnant…..

(after the morning sickness subsided.)

shane & jack

I met my husband in Las Vegas….

This has been a long running joke but he was actually a friend of a friend.

I am way more  country than city. pm

I like simple.

I like the smell of old….does that make me strange?

We lived in Colorado for 6 years & loved every minute.

We had a beautiful brand new home in an amazing neighborhood.

This dear friend lived around the corner form me.

A perfect day…..

would be at the beach with my boys & husband either at dusk or off season

or… a picnic in the country at a vineyard.


I like sweets…a lot:)

My bedroom is always the last room to be cleaned.

We have moved 7 times in the last 1o years,

phew that makes me tired just thinking about it but…it was an adventure.

And still is:).

That’s what LIFE  it is supposed to be, right?

Thanks for letting me ramble:).

Have a blessed day!

  1. Hi Jen, just stopping in to say and congrats on the new ( AND old) blog…. You are very inspiring to me, I am totally new to this whole DIY blogging thing, and when I discovered it I felt like I had an OMG moment…

    ” You mean there are others like me out there? You mean its not weird to have dolled up your bedroom, and fluffed the bed just so- and then take pictures of it????”

    Thanks for sharing your list of fav’s….Some of my favorite things are: Baskets, Pillows, Throws, Candles and wood Cutting boards. A slight addiction maybe… Is there a 12 Step Program for that?

    I feel like I am at home- In your home. Maybe someday when I figure out the blog aspect I’ll actually be able to post and share my photos and Ideas too, until then glad to watch yours evolve!
