Hi I’m Jennifer! A journalist and blogger documenting my life while teaching my children to change the world and inspiring others to do the same. Together we will leave a beautiful legacy for our babies.
I finally decided I was as ready as I was gonna be, and set a goal for September 2009. October 2009 I found out I was pregnant… Officially becoming a Baby Makin’ Machine. Not long after my daughter was born my journey toward #2 began. My son came along in April 2013.
Now, I’ve continued to document my pregnancies, career, relationships, and parenting experience. —Recording my journey through various creative projects such as my Pregnancy Letters, 365 love letters, Video Love Letters, and 30 things my kid’s should know about me series. Outlets like the Today Show have featured my record projects.
I’ve continued to document my journey through motherhood, my trial and errors of becoming a Domestic Diva, and my busy life doing the mom thing while juggling a competitive career. As well as build a community for other parents striving to make a record for their kids to know who they are.
I also share our experiences as a multiracial family, and tips for making strong roots with our children by helping them connect their family’s past to their future.–No matter what your family background.
That’s Where You Come In
I’ve created fun prompts and tutorials so that others can join in on building a legacy to leave behind for their future family. I’ll continue to develop these concepts with the hope others find the inspiration to document their lives through photographs, words, and other mediums. This time goes fast, lets preserve it!
Whether you want to share it online as well, set aside a personal hard copy, or both, you’ll be glad you took the time to make this journal.
