Hello Everyone! I’m Jen and together with my husband Dean, we have two adorable little girls, Avery (4) and Addison (almost 2). I grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota and although I never imagined myself as a city girl, I moved to the Twin Cities 12 years ago now and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! As a family we enjoy being active and have a passion for the outdoors. In the evenings or weekends you’ll often find us playing at the park, camping, spending time at the cabin, ice fishing, snowmobiling, or relaxing on our pontoon (with a tasty beverage in hand of course). But don’t let my outdoorsy side fool you, I also have a girly side and love all things fashion, throwing fabulous theme parties, browsing Pinterest, Bravo TV, and getting my DIY on! I am excited to be a part of this amazing group of moms and look forward to sharing not only what I have learned as a mom, but encouraging other moms as well! You can follow me and my family’s life on Instagram @jenpajerski
