Hello there! I’m Jen, I live in LA by way of Chicago (and New York if we’re talking about places we’ve lived that still have our hearts). Though this is not my first rodeo, it is my first time blogging-like-it’s-my-day-job and I’m excited to see where it takes me. Oh, and I’m super glad you’re here.
Lulu, if case you’re wondering, was and is my lovely Mama’s nickname for me. At 5 I hated it, but as an adult it feels like an ode to my roots. A fitting place to start, I thought, in launching a blog that I hope will be an extension of my most authentic self. It is, after all, from that position — raw, genuine, unbridled — that I find connecting with others to be most valuable, empowering, and insightful.
Though the internet, at times, is a less than ideal location for candid conversation (and truth be told I’d much rather just invite you over for coffee), I think it’s necessary, vital even, to let the light shine through the cracks of our seemingly perfect online composures because it’s only when we get real that we can relate, be understood, encourage and inspire others. Thank you for being a part of the journey.
