Why I Journal

It all started in 1996 when I stole my sister’s Hello Kitty diary from her room, ripped out the pages she had written in, lied to my parents claiming the diary was mine, and brought it to preschool for show and tell. I was a little devil child. ↓ When my parents found out the truth, […]

The Social Media Dilemma

Before launching my blog, I couldn’t have cared less about social media. I posted on instagram once every two months, my only Facebook posts were Instagram shares, and I was very anti-selfie. In fact, I dismissed those who were selfie inclined and social media active as shallow and self-absorbed. Well, look at me now. I’m […]

10 Fun Facts About Me

If you’ve read my Meet Jenn page, you already know a couple things about me. You know I live in Milwaukee, can’t wear stilettos, love traveling the world, and never pass up french fries.

Although…I just realized that all of the outfits I’m showing are from Thailand and none of the photos were taken in Vietnam. It was quite chilly and rainy most days in Vietnam and I didn’t really pack any warm […]

Lessons from Life After College

Ahhh college….those were the days…four carefree years of discovering yourself. It’s a life of semi-independence (I can’t be the only one who’d go home and raid my parents’ pantry), where you’re poor but okay with it (and signing up for student orgs just for free food), while studying hard to prepare yourself for your future […]

Bon Voyage!

Peace out, nasty Wisconsin weather! Tomorrow I’m going to be headed to Vietnam, then to Thailand! Kevin and I booked this trip back in September and it’s crazy how fast time has flown by. I’m still kind of in shock that we’re leaving tomorrow. I think part of the reason why our departure date came […]
