About Me


Hi there. I’m Jora. I’m so happy you decided to stop by.

This blog is my little indulgence. I get to write about things I like, act real bossy, complain a bit, and oh, I post a lot of pictures of my kids. The fact that you are here reading this makes my day. If you want to make me even happier, leave a comment or send me an email.

In case you’re needing more info: I am married to B, who happens to be a very, very good man. We fell in love at first sight (or technically first sound since we met on the phone). He also might the most organized, efficient and productive person you have ever met. We have three small children (C-Man, JuJu and Little E), so we are, as they say, “in the trenches.” In my old life, I used to be a lawyer and enjoyed drinking fine wine, cooking complicated meals, planning vacations and otherwise
doing things that involved quiet, calm and order. Now, I wipe a lot of snotty noses and dirty behinds. I am also the main referee between three irrational, stubborn little people who like to fight over “who gets the red bowl” and “who gets to turn the pages of the book” and other equally important things. Yes, this is my life. And I love it.

(p.s. If you can’t find me here, I’m probably over on pinterest or instagram!)

  13. Hi Jora, this is my first visit. I absolutely love the story about your house, its history, and your ability to connect with the granddaughter of the original owner. I also love the mom/daughter pic you posted. Is that you and your daughter? Keep up the good work. Regards.
