About


Once upon a time, Jenni was living the not-so-glamorous life of a non-profit fundraiser in D.C.  Upon graduating from the University of Maryland in College Park with degrees in both Women's Studies and Journalism, she decided she could never be a "real" journalist and "work for the man," so a career saving the world one dollar at a time seemed just the thing.  After several years of bouncing around women's organizations and direct service providers in the District working way to hard for way to little compensation she finally took a "big job," got married to her high school sweetheart, and bought a house in the suburbs.
Jenni's next completely unoriginal move was to get pregnant and have her fist baby, Oscar, in July 2007.  She opted to stay on maternity leave indefinitely (take that, Women's Studies!), beginning her career as a stay-at-home mom.  Her second son, Miles William, was born exactly 18 months and two days after Oscar's birth.  


Jenni enjoys good beer, mediocre wine, books of all kinds, and excellent conversation.  She also maintains that she is funnier in person and has never lost an argument.  She blogs about barely containing the chaos that is raising two boys so close in age, where you will often find her complaining about her lack of sleep, unsuccessful potty training, and her husband's inability to put his socks in the hamper.  Which is exactly THREE FEET AWAY from the spot he dropped them on the floor.
