About me


I’m Jen, a forty something lifestyle blogger and happiness enthusiast, and this blog is the place where I write.

I write to tell stories, share inspiration and to encourage you to live in a way that makes you feel alive.

Whether it’s gathering friends to give for a purpose, drinking kombucha instead of soda, running a 5K to say that you did it, finding a bargain and wearing it proudly, or painting that piano that’s been waiting to shine….there are so many things that when done with intention lead us to live healthier, happier, and younger lives.

We click around in this online world, looking for whatever it is we hope to find. Every now and then, along with the banana pudding recipe, we make a real connection.

My goal is to fill this space with useful ideas and sharable content. However, I want this to be a place to not only share experiences and great ideas, but to share them with a purpose to encourage and connect with someone else.

Stick around, come back often, and join the conversations in the comments. Feel free to email me at jensinkpen@yahoo.com.  You can also find me on Instagram and Pinterest at JENSINKPEN.

For the “about me” extended version and a virtual coffee chat,  go here! I’d love to get to you know too!
