I am Jennifer (Ja), a 33 year old ex-art student who is still in touch with her ceative side. In 2008 my teenage niece came to live with me full time and my whole life shifted (for the better). For years I had been the rebellious goth-princess and now I am the guardian and responsible care-giver to a teenager coming into her own. It's not always a smooth ride....but it's amazing.
We live in a funky, alternative household of five people, three dogs and a terrorist cat that is full of love and support. We are living proof that "traditional" doesn't mean better.
