Hi, I’m Jen, or more formally, Jenifer, and as the name of my blog suggests, indeed my given name is spelled with only one N. I realize this is a hard concept for some people to grasp, that one of the most popular girl names of the late ’70s and early ’80s could ever be spelled any other way than with two Ns, but now’s the time to just get over it, and thank your lucky stars I don’t spell my name with a PH, G, or some other such nonsense. Just stick to calling me Jen – three little letters – and all will be right as rain.
Speaking of rain, I currently reside in Seattle with my culinarily talented husband Roth and our devastating adorable 1-year-old son Rowan. Originally from California, we moved to the Emerald City in 2005, from the Central Coast of California, where I spent my formative years. I do love California, will always consider myself a California girl at heart, and maybe some day I could see us living there again, but Seattle has really become our home, despite its bad rap for uncooperative weather most months of the year. Spend one summer here, and you’ll understand.
You might know me better from my previous blog incarnation Quarter Life Crisis. All of the content from that site is here, transferred from Blogger where it lived and breathed for more than five years. I’d danced around the idea of upgrading to WordPress with my very own domain for a long time, but when Haloscan, the third-party commenting platform I’d also used for more than five years went belly up, I decided it was time to get myself some grown-up digs.
Why “Cheerios on the soles of her shoes”? This post pretty much sums it up.
So, here I am. And I hope you’ll stick around for awhile.
