About Me

Hi!  I'm Janice! I am so many things but my favorite titles are wife, mom, daughter, sister, marathon runner, adventurer, hiker, backpacker, vacation-er... blogger?!

We are the second owners of a fairly newly built home (which had all beige walls still and very little personality).  I share this home (and all my love) with my wonderful husband, a few kids, & two yellow Labrador Retrievers.

I started this blog as a way to document our triumphs and sob-stories while we tackled one little project at a time.  I also love a good craft (I get it honestly (hi mom!)) so I occasionally get the chance to blog about those, too!

I married the man of my dreams August 22, 2009.

Oh Joy! Photography

We met in college at The Ohio State University and dated for almost 4 years before we got married.  Days after we got married.

I mentioned that we have two labs.  Leif & Soma.  They are wonderful dogs but they are SO much work! I am constantly vacuuming! Luckily, they are very well behaved so their fur is the biggest complaint I have of them on an average day.

Want to know something more?  Let me know!

  1. Hey Janice! Just wanted to say hello and thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday! I'm so glad to meet you. :) You have two gorgeous dogs! I know the constant vaccuming you speak of!...I have an Anatolion and a gorgeous Mutt....and they shed like crazy. I believe I could make sweaters out of my Anatolions hair if I wanted to. Lol! I didn't know if I mentioned it anywhere on my blog but my husband flew helicopters for the Army at one time! So we both have aviation men in our lives!
    Hope to talk to you soon!
