about me




I’m Jean.

I’m a writer, reader, & photographer. I ponder what it means to live intentionally.  I advocate local food & craft, environmental conservation, & sustainability, because these things are important. I look for hope, ideas, & shared experience everywhere I can, because we’re all in this together and what we do matters.

I’m also a wife, mom, recovering academic, chocoholic, Ravenclaw, Pilates lover, knitter, nutrition nut, hiker, tea addict, & Texas girl. I pick up hobbies like some women buy shoes… I guess I love to learn, to expand my definition of my self.


My Manifesto.
