I’m a homemaker in my 30s reflecting on my 20s and wondering about my 40s. I haven’t always been a homemaker and I am about to become a mom.

The name “JenJapan” goes back to my 20s when I studied and worked in Japan where I had some of my most “fish in the water” moments.

I’m new to blogging so you might not see much here. Let’s just say that I’d rather be living life than blogging about it but blogging helps me remember how I once lived and aspire to live.
