By Jenna Winegeart / January 12, 2020 /

I couldn’t even tell you where I first learned about the enneagram. Was it a podcast? An Instagram post? A friend? I remember I was super into personality assessments—ever since I was young enough to appreciate a quiz that wasn’t for a grade, I’ve taken any I could get my hands on. Who wouldn’t want…

FAVORITE CHILDREN’S BOOKS

By Jenna Winegeart / October 30, 2019 /

Shopping for children’s books is one of my favorite things to shop for. I started collecting them in college, & I basically look for any opportunity to buy one now– birthday present, Christmas present, travel souvenir, & any other random special occasion– it’s safe to say I’ll show up with a book! I like buying…

S’MORES BAR

By Jenna Winegeart / October 21, 2019 /

In the summertime, there’s nothing that I enjoy putting together more than a cheese & charcuterie board. Maybe it’s a small one for a snacky dinner or a massive one for a baby shower or dinner party. Zero cooking is required, & it’s one of the only times you’ll be encouraged to play with your…

Last fall, Blake & I attended a fundraiser, & there was a silent auction. We perused the tables at the beginning of the evening & put an early bid down for a week long stay at a cabin in Breckenridge, Colorado. Long story short, we won! We decided to go in the summer for some…

VISIT: HOMESTEAD HERITAGE- WACO, TX

By Jenna Winegeart / May 20, 2019 /

As with most things, my packing game has dramatically changed since having children. What used to be a strategy of planning outfits a week in advance has become a joke of loading all the things into suitcases two hours before we hit the road. And I mean all the things. The priority isn’t even clothes…

DEAR EMMA JAMES, WHY WE CHOSE OPEN ADOPTION

By Jenna Winegeart / May 14, 2019 /

Dear Emma, We chose open adoption for two reasons: 1. You. 2. Your birth mother. I wish we were selfless, but we didn’t choose open adoption for us. It would have been so much easier for your dad & me to close that road off. It would have been so much easier. To tell you…
