After over a decade of friendship, Tom and I were married on September 10, 2011 at a beautiful DIY oceanside ceremony conducted by our best friends. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and everything that we dreamed of. This blog is intended to chronicle the next chapter of our lives as we journey down the road of life as newlyweds. This is going to be a smattering of everything; our adventures, recipes, projects, and stories of life in general.
On a more personal note, we are currently living in a two-bedroom apartment in Portland, Maine. So, the majority of our travels and restaurant reviews will be based out of the greater Portland area. If you are a local to the area, feel free to add your own commentary in the comments section. If you have never visited Maine, consider this your invitation. Yes, the winters are long, but the summers are perfect and make everything worthwhile.
My name is Jenny, and I am the primary author of the blog. I currently work for a large telecommunications company; however, I am hoping to go back to my career as a school psychologist after Tom and I start a family. The economy hit me hard a couple years back, and at this point I am not ready to leave the job security, and benefits, that my current job provides for me. My favorite hobbies are baking, crocheting, scrapbooking, and pretty much any craft project that I can get my hands on. I love to find new ways to organize our apartment, and I am also an aspiring landscape photographer. After much coaxing from friends and family, I recently decided to open an Etsy shop as a means of making my work available for purchase.
Tom is my best friend and husband of almost one year. He also works at a telecommunications company and was recently accepted back into school in order to advance his career. Tom's hobbies include cooking, reading, and video games. He makes some pretty amazing creations in the kitchen, which he will hopefully share on occasion.
