My name is Jen and I live in the beautiful state of Washington. I live with my significant other, Aaron and our great dog. We will be married in the next year. I am home bound due to major illness but make the best of it. Before the illness I was a career woman, a counselor and very active. Now I get the chance to stay home and learn how to keep a house and make a house a home. It is just so much fun! I was raised by incredibly frugal parents. To get a five dollar loan as a kid we had to write essays and perform persuasive speeches. I learned the value of everything. I choose home remedies for most things and prefer to make whatever I need at home.
