Mind Your P’s and J’s

In Intentional Living, Marriage by Jenn0 Comments

My Tribe of Life-Giving Weirdos

In Tips + Tools by Jenn2 Comments

A week ago I handed my grumpy, teething child to my husband and ran off to join a circus group of local bloggers at The Wonder Jam, which the balder half of said Wonder Jam called a gathering of the tribe of weirdos. (I did go back home eventually, for the record.) …
