My name is Jennifer, but most people call me Jenny. As long as you don't call me Jen, we are good. I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband, 16-year-old son, and 11-year-old daughter.
I started this blog because I seem to have a continuous monologue going on in my head. It isn't usually about anything vital to life, it is just my thoughts and opinions and observations. Maybe having somewhere to write it all down will be a good thing. I love reading other people's blogs and seeing a snapshot of their lives. Hopefully, you will feel the same about mine.
I love books and always have. Books are a constant source of comfort, entertainment, escape, and knowledge. I enjoy discussing books but don't have that many people in my everyday life who feel the same. I frequently use this blog to indulge my need for a good book discussion. Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, Mollie Panter-Downes, and Angela Thirkell. I love Persephone Books and think one of the best reasons to go to London is to visit their shop.
Interspersed with the book discussions you will find musings on parenthood, rants about everyday life and posts about what we have been up to lately. Aside from my love of books, there is no real overwhelming theme to this blog but that is the way I like it. I hope you do too.
So, welcome to my world. I am usually to be found with a cup of tea in my hand and a book on my lap while surrounded by the chaos of everyday life. I am always planning my next trip to London and trying to resist the urge to bake more cookies.
