The Cliche Introductory Post

Monday, March 7, 2016

Hey everyone, thank you for checking out my blog. I'm Jennifer, I'm blogging to you from Connecticut, USA. I'm a fashion design graduate, former business student, and a Certified Nurses Aide. I work the weirdest hours which include overnight and day hours. I am part of the "sandwich generation" which means I take care of my own children, while I take care of my 91 year old grandmother. I have a fiance, and a set of fish and two birds.

I began blogging over 6 years ago when my son was born. The blogs original name was Gibmee, which was just baby language for how my son said "Give me." The blog focused on my day to day parenting, and caring for my grandmother. As my children got older I was starting to feel uncomfortable with them being online if they didn't have a clue about it or didn't want to be online. Although the blog is still up I haven't posted on there in so long.

I created this blog because I wanted a place where I can escape from my real life. Something different than children and grandparents, seriousness, and the day to day grind. I want this place to be a positive outlet where I can talk about fashion design, the process of fashion design, DIY projects, photography and lots more.

  10. What you do is commendable! I know it can't be easy to be taking care of other people! (I'm a nurse full time so I get it) . Blogging is also a way for me to explore something different and get away :)
