a little about me

Dinner with Friends

01

I was born in Michigan but grew up on the beautiful beaches of the sunshine state, aka, Florida. I moved back to Michigan in 2009 and lived there for 6 years before moving again and finally (hopefully) settling down in Fort Worth, TX.

02

I’ve lived in 5 different states in my short life… Florida, Arizona, South Carolina, Michigan, and finally Texas.

All because I met my amazing husband while attending school for Nuclear Medicine and a few years into our relationship he decided to go to medical school.

03

The hubby and I been together for more than 14 years, married for 6, and have 4 children – Alyssa, Aubrey, Alivia, and Aidan – a corgi and a cat.

04

We have a family of 6 and I also grew up in a family of 6. I have 2 sisters and a brother – of which I am the oldest – and they both still live in Florida.

05

I’m a huge procrastinator, slight perfectionist, spur-of-the-moment decision maker, and outgoing-introvert. I also love being outdoors and you can catch me at the beach just about any day it is sunny and warm out.

06

I feel like I’ve been in school all my life… and I have three degrees to prove it!

Frequently Asked Questions

How did you get started blogging?

Blogging

Since having to move across the country several times with my husband, my original career of Nuclear Medicine had fallen by the way-side. It was hard to keep finding jobs every time we moved. So one summer, in 2010, I decided to became a Beachbody Coach and my blogging adventure began soon thereafter. I wanted a way to document my fitness journey as a coach, help inspire others to begin their journeys, and share everything else that happened in my little life.

In the beginning, I only blogged about my fitness transformation and health & fitness tips, but didn’t really take it much further than that. I was shy to the idea of truly opening up to people and letting them into my world. However, just about a year ago, I started posting about everything else that was happening in my life and since I am a work-from-home mom, it gave me a little bit more to do during the day and started sparking my creative side again.

Blogging has been such an unexpected gift, in that it has renewed my creative side and opened me to a whole world of other people who inspire and encourage me daily.

So, thank you for coming along for the ride. You make me more passionate about what I do everyday!

Do you have any tips/recommendations for a newbie blogger like myself?

Blogging

This is such a difficult question to answer but the important thing to remember is to be yourself and to be authentic. Blog because you love it and because you are passionate about it! For more of my favorite tips and blogging resources, visit this page.

What kind of camera and equipment do you use?

Blogging

From 2010 until Christmas 2014, I took photos with an old Cannon DSLR that was a hand-me-down from my dad. For Christmas 2014, my parents bought me a new Canon T5i and shortly thereafter I upgraded the stock lens to a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens that I use for all my photography now. I have my eye on a sweet macro lens that I’m hoping to get in the very near future!

I try to use natural light whenever possible (our overabundance of windows are amazing for this), but in the wintertime I’m usually stuck to only photography food in the early morning. Hopefully, I can find a reliable nighttime setup and I’ll be sure to share when I do.

Photography is a never-ending learning process and I’ve definitely evolved over time, though I’m not close to where I would like to be.

Check out these posts for an extensive list of camera equipment, books to read, and anything else photography related.

PHOTOGRAPHY POSTS

Can I use your photos?

Recipes

As for images on their own, if you’d like to use one in a roundup or similar context, I usually don’t mind, as long as the image is clearly credited, something along the lines of, “Photo courtesy of Jennifer Meyering,” with a link back to the original post, and uploaded to your own server (see: hotlinking). If you are unsure about whether or not what your are doing is okay, please ask first (and thanks in advance for making the effort to do so).

CONTACT

I tried one of your recipes but it did not turn out. What did I do wrong?

Recipes

As I am not there in the kitchen with you, it is very hard for me to specifically answer this question. Oven temperature, cooking times, ingredient substitutions, and many other things can all play a role in the specific outcome of a dish.
