Selfportrait

I started this blog when I was in need of a creative outlet. I just so happened to also be in need of some changes — I wanted to simplify my life, keep working on accepting my natural self, minimize my consumption (and spending) and finally prioritize the things that actually make me happy, such as writing, reading, art and inspiration.

I wanted to document my own process of becoming who I really want to be. This blog is reporting from the battlefield as I try (and struggle) to stay on course.

My name is Jaclyn and I’m almost 30. I live in Seattle with my husband, and two furbabies (Alfie the dog, Minino the cat). I’ve tried really hard to be who others wanted me to be, and now I’m trying to be who I want me to be.

Thanks for reading. I’m really glad you’re here. 🙂
