Hi, my name is Jenn.


Time to share the real deal.

I'd like to pretend I have hours every morning to get all gussied up for my job as laundry do-er and short order chef. I'd like to pretend that I wear blingin' jeans and carry a designer clutch. I'd like to pretend that I was all that and a cup of tea. But this is the real me. 5:00 in my backyard between pushes on the swing...this is where you'll find me most days. No make-up, pony tail, signature glasses on my head, and wearing cut offs and a tee. I'd like to pretend that I am ultra hip and fashion forward. But I'd just be pretending.

And that's ok. I'm "mom".

I wear my hair in a ponytail so often that one time my husband asked me if my hair was only growing out of one hole in the back of my head, lol.

You're adorable!

Jenn, You are a fun, hip, active, busy, caring, mom and businesswoman. You are gorgeous inside and out!

And I wish I looked that fresh and pretty without makeup. :)

I'm with ya on the ponytails. I always "try" to leave my hair down. But with kids it just doesn't stay down. With it up, it's one less thing to get in the way of getting things done. :)

Hugs!!
