My name is Jenna and I am totally new to this whole blogging thing, so please bear with me on this journey as I try to figure it all out! I recently gave up my career in the federal government in Washington, D.C. to relocate to Austin, TX with my husband for his job. Thankfully, my husband is able to support us in Austin while I do some self exploration and decide what I want to do and how I will feel fulfilled. I am also a newlywed, married in June of 2015 and loving every minute of it, (so far!). I really enjoy traveling – my husband and I have been to Italy, Cancun, Abu Dhabi/ Dubai, and all over the US. Due to our traveling, we have also become quite big wine snobs with our favorite being a dry red called Sagrintino from Italy. When I’m not working or traveling, I really enjoy crafting and making many different items from house decorations to sewing baby blankets to crocheting snowmen! Over the years, I have had plenty of friends and family members suggest that I sell the crafts that I make on Etsy and after a few months of wracking my brain and doing research on all of this, I decided that starting a blog and sharing what I make would be a great start. I am an avid “pinner” and have tried many things that have and have not worked that I would like to share with you, in addition to the items I make on my own. Stay tuned…
So…where does “Danbury’s Nest” come from?
Part of the reason why I have been delaying blogging is because I couldn’t quite find a name that captured everything I do and want to do. As I was shopping in Fairfax Corner in Fairfax, VA one day, I ran across a little boutique store called “The Nest Egg” and it rang a bell for me. I wanted to include items I make for babies, for the home, and to eat and needed a name that incorporated all of that…And, what better word than “nest”! Then, I got to thinking about where my first “nest”was and what really mean a lot to me to get me where I am today…well, that was easy…the name of the street I was brought home to when I was born and spent the first 15 years of my life…Danbury Road! So, here we are at Danbury’s Nest!
That’s probably enough about me for now! I must admit that this first post is very exciting and nerve-wracking, all at the same time! I will eventually get on a more regular schedule for posting in the near future and will keep y’all posted.
