Acorn Fall Box: Feat. My Morning Ritual, Lists, and Halloween Candy

I woke up the other morning, as I do on mornings. I wake up. I woke up before the children to get me my Me Time. *This is an Acorn Influence sponsored story, featuring items from their Acorn Fall Box. This story and opinion is mine, all mine. My early-morning Me Time includes (but is not […]

Wonder and Company: Wonderful Objects Box Unboxing!

My name is Jenny and I like surprises. Not surprises like, “Oh hey… we need to throw out all the meat in the freezer because the freezer must’ve quite working a few days ago and there’s a puddle in the garage and…” Not THOSE kinds of surprises. I like surprises of cute things. Fun things. […]

What I’ve Learned This Summer

I haven’t written for the sake of writing in a while. But I have spent some time in a hammock. You know what I’ve learned this summer? I have learned that no matter how intent you are… no matter how MUCH you know how to NOT flip over in a hammock… flipping over in a […]

How I Broke My Pinky Toe. Edited: Three Times

So, I made a video of me telling the story of how I broke my pinky toe. And then. Lucy hurt her knee and had been hobbling around on crutches and one week after – what I will now refer to as – My First Break Lucy hobbled by me and re-injured my broken toe […]

Two Podcasts

I really tried to come up with a better title. But. Podcasts. They are all the rage right now. PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY ARE AWESOME. I love me a good Podcast. I love This American Life, and the Ted Radio Hour, and The Accidental Creative, and The Moth, and Criminal, and Stuff to Blow Your Mind, […]

Things I’m Really Into Right Now – Episode 7 – Feat. Fringe

No, I am not talking about a surrey with a fringe on the top. (Thank you high school voice ensemble for the wide musical experience, including but not limited to a Rodgers and Hammerstein mash-up that I can probably STILL sing all the alto parts to rather flawlessly but I digress…) I am talking about […]

Finding Joy… In the Mess.

Is it possible? Finding the joy in the mess. I mean, really. IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE? I actually believe it is. It is a battle of the mind to get there. No, a TRAINING of the mind. Speaking of the mind… Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” is in theaters now. It’s a movie about 11 year […]

Things I’m Really Into Right Now – Episode 4

I keep making these videos. It means one of two things: 1) I am into WAY too many things, or… Um. Aaanywho. These are some fun things I am into right now. My consumerism may or may not be showing. I like doing these videos because: #1 – They’re super easy to put together for […]

Mother’s Day Printable. And Then Some. I LOVE PRINTABLES!

I’m toying with an idea… Making/creating/designing printables. Downloads. Sharables. I don’t know. But I DO know… I like printables. I like prints. I like typography. And simple graphics. I like to hang them on my walls… I like to frame them.  (Please excuse the pear border. Meh.)  I’ve downloaded from websites. I’ve ordered on Etsy […]

Free Association and Rocks Box Unboxing

I think my least favorite part of writing is coming up with a title. It was hard enough pre-SEO (Search Engine Optimization) (which is long-wordy for: a title strategy so search engines will help people find you) (which kind-of feels like extreme evangelism) (if you have ever had to work on SEO that will totally […]
