Hi, I’m Jenn. I’m a wife, a mom and someone that needs to be making things to be mentally okay. I’m in need of a new creative outlet and a place to record things in life, as I plan it and as it happens, in words and photos. So I’m using this little space in my shop and I want to see where it goes.

I grew up in the suburbs of New York City. My husband grew up on a farm in Illinois. We met at an art store in the East Village in 2008 and we’ve been together ever since. We lived simply in a one bedroom apartment in the city just three blocks from Central Park. Camping and taking drives out into the country to enjoy the quietness were our getaways – just to be in nature, breath fresh air and day dream of owning a home with acreage to grow a garden, have chickens and maybe even other small animals.

With the help of my family, we bought a Colonial cottage/farmhouse on four acres in rural Northeastern Pennsylvania during the pandemic of 2020. It’s an old home so there’s a list of things that we want to change but we are finally living in a home in the country.

The 100 year old Colonial Cottage.
The barn.

We have a lot to figure out with this old house, country living and bringing up our little boy. I hope you come back and join us on our adventure. I’ll share things on simple homemaking, nontoxic living, gentle parenting and running a small business.
