About Me


My name is Jen and I’m a born and bred California girl, who became an unexpected Manitoba girl when I went and fell in love with a Winnipegger.


The changes in my life have been drastic, to say the least. Going from perpetual sunshine and palm trees to Maple trees and -30C/-22F winter temperatures is quite a leap. To be honest though, I’ve never been happier in my life.

Since I’ve been here, I have had the chance to explore my many interests. Such as writing and starting this site, and my many Domestic Goddess endeavors like cooking and baking, gardening, and interior design. All of which I enjoy sharing with you!

The intent of this site and its various categories is to demonstrate that whether you are looking for a grande adventure outside of your comfort zone or simply looking to mix things up a bit right in your own backyard, it can be done. All with just a little adjustment in perspective. Despite life’s many challenges, be they great or small, when you look at the beauty that surrounds us and actually be able to see it clearly, through honest and uninfluenced eyes, the world is suddenly a much more beautiful and peaceful place.

I invite you on this journey of adjustment and newness and to share in all the surprises and changes that happen along the way. You’re just one ‘follow’ click away. Won’t you join me?
