My name is Jen and I am a 33 year old blogger living in northern California. I’m married to a wonderful man and have a beautiful son (Daniel) born on April 7, 2009. We also have 4 very spoiled cats.
When I’m not chasing Daniel, I enjoy reading anything I can find, listening to a variety of music, singing great classical and sacred works, exploring northern California, finding decent iced vanilla lattés, taebo, traveling, crocheting, spending time with my family in San Jose, cooking, Postcrossing, and general web geekery.
If you can’t tell by my site, I am Christian. “Khouria” is the title given to the priest’s wife in the Antiochian Orthodox Church and while I’m not Orthodox, I am a pastor’s wife and Orthodoxy does figure into my faith. My Christianity can best be described as a melange of Anglicanism, Orthodoxy, Lutheranism, Catholicism, and some Evangelicalism thrown in for good measure. If you cut me open, I bleed Christian first and foremost and if you want to get specific, I’m Lutheran but more Catholic in practice.
This site uses WordPress and the header is a picture I took of the Flathead River in Montana while stopping to visit my great-aunt on the way home from a retreat. The theme (layout) is “Twenty Eleven”.
