Not About Me:

Technological gadgetry

Fashion (though I wish I was better at it)

Investing (though I wish I was better at it)

Parenting as a competitive sport

Competitive sports in general

Brownie Bites (I will never understand this concept.  Maybe I should add self-control to this list)

Reality T.V.

About Me:

My family: my husband, 3 kids, and my animals

Learning to make things by hand


Books across all genres

The poetry of Robert Frost and the prose of E.B. White

Cooking and baking

Living an intentional life (at least this is what I’m striving for)

So this is sort of what I’ve got going on while I live here with my family in the suburbs of Northern Virginia.  This list is by no means exhaustive and may very well change, although I never think I’ll understand the point of brownie bites.



  1. Janna, I prefer brownies, sprinkled with m&ms, warm from the oven, and eaten with a spoon. I think I might swoon. 🙂 Thanks for following friendlyfairytales. Have fun with your blogitecture. I need a big reno, but I can’t get up the energy. Sigh. A job for another day (read: day not night). 🙂 Glad to meet you! Warmly, Brenda

  2. I know that WordPress suggested we not write our About page as a ‘shopping list’ but personally I like that format. I changed mine slightly but I kept the shopping list approach and I added a few photographs. Personally I like good ‘reality’ TV. I’m not into any of the Housewives of…..series or Big Brother but I love Survivor and the Amazing Race. I also like fashion but other than those two differences we’re pretty similar.
