I am thrilled to be joining in with Suzanne from The Glorious Mundane for her Outside The Frame (bi-weekly) Blog Link-up! I am officially at 4 months now with my blog, and in that time I have already made so many fabulous blogger friends and I have fallen in love with the this blogging community. I have been encouraged, inspired and loved by so many already and I am excited to explore this amazing Link-Up challenge.
Today’s post is all about INTRODUCTIONS so I am excited to tell you a little about myself!
My name is Jenna (the mommy blogger behind Espresso Ever After) and I am having way too much fun living this mommy-hood life in sunny Arizona! I am a Jesus lover, wifey to a fantastic husband, and a mommy to two beautiful little girls; Paisley (three years old) and Payton (ten months old). I am a messy-topknot wearing, photo obsessing, travel adoring, Target shopping, latte loving mama … battling through this thing called real life! My passion is encouraging other moms to be the best version of themselves and to embrace authentic motherhood, so that in return we can all grow and become the best moms to our little ones. I love to inspire women with my posts as well as promote products I love and small shops/mommapreneurs! This mommy world is so much fun and has so much to offer, and I am thankful for all that it has done for me and for what I can do for others in return.
Before I was a blogger: Let me tell you a little history … I met my husband at Arizona State University my freshman year of college, (Go Sundevils!) and so began our dating adventure. We ended up doing long-distance for 4 years while he received his doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University, and while I finished up my bachelors degree in Tourism and Event Planning at ASU. Having a long distant relationship is hard work, but if you stay committed and put in 110% it is definitely do-able and worth it! Once he graduated, we got married and then moved to Manhattan, Kansas while he continued his education and completed a Surgical Internship. It was a huge change for me, moving away from the only place I knew, but I would have to say that it was probably the most exciting and memorable year of my life. Moving to a small town as a newly married couple allowed us to focus on one another and start life together as a team. It was also exciting to move to a place with four seasons. I absolutely love cold weather, so it was my dream come true. Our traveling adventure eventually moved us back home to Arizona where we have grown into a family of 4 and now I have fallen in love with blogging in my spare time … Ha – like moms have spare time! 🙂 I hope you follow along with me at Espresso Ever After and enjoy my highly caffeinated adventure through mom-hood.I would love to connect with you on:
Come along with us on this journey… join in and Link-Up on The Glorious Mundane – I would love to get to know you!
I’m so excited that you linked up!
I absolutely agree with you about inspiring women to live authentic. That is my passion and it brought tears to my eyes to hear you say it, too!
Buttt….I’m afraid we can’t be friends. I HATE cold weather! No, no, no!
I suppose I could forgive you for that and I can’t wait to learn more about you through this little LInk-Up!
Suzanne – Thank you for starting this wonderful Link-Up opportunity. I am so excited to be stretched by some of the topics! I love bringing people to HAPPY tears 🙂 I think we are definitely living in the wrong states, because Ohio looks stunning right now covered in snow! I am excited to learn more about you too!
