My name is Jen and I have been the happy wife to Franz since 2006, and a mama since the entrance of our first son in 2008. We have since added twin boys, and a sweet baby girl, and all together we live in beautiful chaos in the sweet, tiny town I was born and raised in.

I have dreamed of being a writer since I was old enough to understand what great writing is. Inspired by authors like Louisa May Alcott, and Jane Austen, I dreamed of writing stories that would draw people in. Jo March, Elizabeth Bennet and Anne Shirley were some of my favorite childhood friends, and I hoped to one day create characters that people could relate to and love.

As a busy (and often overwhelmed) mama, that dream is on hold, but I still craved the need for a creative outlet. Which brings us to why you are here! I started this blog as a way to share my thoughts, and to invite others in as we walk through this life together.  Wherever you may be in your current stage of life, my hope is that you leave my blog feeling encouraged. Thank you for taking the time to read bits of my heart!
