Hi everyone! My name is Jen and you’ve stumbled across my little nook on the ‘net. It’s always been my vision as a mom to help make long-lasting memories. You’ve come to the right spot if you’re looking or tips, tricks, and mom hacks to make your life easier so you can get about the business of making those families memories. I’ll even give you some great ideas with activities or events that will help fuel those memories. You could say I’m in the memory-making business.
A Little About Jen
For the most part, have grown up in St. Louis. Graduated from St. Louis University with a degree in Marketing. Once I graduated in ’04, I spent my time around the St. Louis Metro area in a recruitment capacity for a few Fortune 500 Companies. In 2012, I was recruited away to my dream job, to manage the Internship Program for MasterCard. It was the hardest and most fulfilling job I’ve ever had. I had so much fun building a strong program and becoming an employer of choice at Universities.
But before all of that – here’s how we got to And Hattie Makes Three
Met Jeff in 2004 on Match.com
March 2007, we were engaged
May 2008 we were married
After a couple of years of trying and difficulties due to being diagnosed with PCOS, we decided to not stress anymore about having a baby.
When it happened, it would.
April 2013 – Went on our 5 Year Anniversary Cruise on the Allure of the Seas
A Few Weeks Later…
9 Months Later we were blessed with Hattie Grace
At that time, I decided to end my job managing the Internship Program to stay home with Miss H full time. While it was one of the hardest decisions, it was the best decision. In the past few years, we have had so much fun learning and growing. Our lifestyle has changed. Priorities shifted.
So now, instead of lunch meetings and quick flights out to colleges, I spent my time as a part-time Girl Scout Leader, PTO Parent, Cheer Mom and focusing on Miss H. We have a pretty action-packed social calendar so I created this blog to document our life and what we do, where we go, new things we try and what we love.
We love to travel, share delicious recipes, share in our latest home remodeling adventures, sharing our love of St. Louis, and probably some Mommy & Me Style.
We’re so glad you stopped by and look forward to getting to know you more! Be sure to find me over on Instagram too!
Thanks for stopping by – and I look forward to getting you know you more!
