Friends of Ours.
Hello, and welcome to It’s Jou Life. We’re Wayne and Jennifer, a (relatively) newly-wed couple who found love in the most unexpecting place. This is our DIY / lifestyle blog—musing about natural, healthy, artisanal living, and everything in between.
We started this blog because our family and friends always ask us how we grow our own organic vegetables, what is Wayne woodworking on now, to send over our our miso black cod recipe, what snacks stock our pantry, a tutorial on that cute zippered pouch, tips for marathon running, where do we worship, what to bring for a camping trip, what’s Jennifer’s skincare regimen… you get the idea. This is our way to share life’s loves.
Wayne of all trades is an engineer by day and a woodworker/gardener/chef by night. Jennifer, who recently left her finance job at the BBC, is an activist, artist, actor, and an alliterations addict. You would often find us dancing to our own beat, exploring the great outdoors, at home watching Netflix, and handcrafting everything we own. We find the beauty in our every day, with each other, and in the Lord our Savior.
We both live to create with hopes to inspire. Thank you for joining us as we try to do all things with love. Here is a glimpse into our quirky lives.
