Welcome to my blog! I’m Jenni, a wife to a law student and mom of three boys living in Kansas. I started this blog when we lived in Oakland, CA on the top floor of a three-story walk-up that gave us access to the roof. The apartment was not the greatest – on warm days, it would get up to 95+ degrees inside and we had no air-conditioning. But I loved to go up to the roof from time-to-time to catch a cool breeze, look at the stars, or watch the sunset over the Bay.
When I began this blog in 2008, I focused on things you could do that don’t cost that much money (hence, hanging out on the roof for a free view). I’m still interested in those things, so they will pop up here and there, but now, on the verge of 2013, I find myself wanting to write more about creativity in the home and in our personal lives. I truly want our home to be not just a place to find refuge and love, but also a place to explore ideas and work out the talents each of us are gifted with. I still think that “Life from the Roof” fits, but in a different way – now it’s about finding unexpected views on life that are there for the taking if you take the time to look for them.
