Welcome to my blog! My name is Jen and I live in southern Louisiana - just north of New Orleans. I try to live a healthy, balanced life, but also enjoy some southern indulgences, such as Mardi Gras, Gumbo, and Mint Juleps. I love serendipity, nostalgia, traveling, good friends, coincidences, red wine in big glasses, and doing things I've never done before. Oh yeah, and running! Can't forget running.
