    I traveled to Orlando with my friend Megg who was going there for a conference. We stayed at the Gaylord Palms, visited Epcot one evening and had a great time.
    I had a couple interesting conversations with people at the pool. One lady was fascinated by my knitting and we had a rather awkward chat when I told her I was knitting a chicken.

Like spending time with a true friend!

I’ve been a listener to Jen for many, many years now and I’m even more excited now than ever to see another episode drop. Her podcast has evolved with time and so has she. Jen is sensitive to the ways of the world and creates a welcoming community. I love hearing how she channels her creativity and shares it with listeners and loved ones.

Melissa bella fio ,

Love it 💕

Jen’s voice is so soothing and she’s so down to earth!
