Pictures can tell your story.

I’m Jenna and before I can tell your story I need to tell you mine. I’m a bit of an outsider and like to do things differently than most people. I love people watching and making up stories about strangers.

  • I am unable to function without coffee and breakfast every day. Mornings are not my thing. 
  • I binge on true crime, in all formats: books, tv, movies, and podcasts. I’m fascinated with how criminals think.
  • I enjoy running half marathons and think I will like marathons. I’ve trained for two marathons but still have not completed one. 18-20 mile training runs aren’t that bad.
  • I like big books and I cannot lie. Reading is kind of my thing.
  • Pop punk and 90s music is my jam.
  • Awkward people are my favorite. I fit in best with them.
  • Dance breaks are a necessity when making dinner.

My first prom

Image 2 of 16

I was pretty anti-fashion in high school. I wore cargo pants and over sized t-shirts (with tigers on them) and chucks or vans. Maybe docs. The few times I went all fashionable were school dances. Normally I hated dresses except for homecomings and proms. I bought homecoming dresses from Delia*s (anyone remember them?) to be different. And I got this prom dress in Arizona because I wanted to have a dress no one else would have. And the gloves? Had. To. Have. Them.

As you can see, I have always been pulled into creative endeavors. These are just a few of the photos I have to tell my story. I love pulling out my albums and flipping through. It always makes me smile to look back and be reminded of the fun times.
