About Me

Hi! I consider myself a California girl with Korean roots whose lived in Sicily, San Diego, Lake Bluff, Sacramento, Santa Cruz, South Korea, Texas and Monterey.

Where am I now? You’ll figure it out! I believe a part of my destiny is to uproot; countries, states, towns, homes and apartments…along seas, beaches and lakes. I’ve loved it all!

My creativity sparks in new cities, countries & cultures, reviving me with an everlasting love for interior decorating, rummaging for unique decor, restoring old & new for an eclectic twist and finishing it all off with my passion for photography.

    i have to tell you, in tears, i accidently found your blog.
    my dear friend was named jeni. i have never seen another person spell jeni the same way. she passed unexepctely 2 years agoand i miss her deepy. oddly enough, you remind me of her. she always wanted to visit Europe. her motto was “love life” . her last name was butler…i will freak out if thats your last name…none the less…i jsut had to follow. hope you are not offended.
    a large hello from eastern NC!

      Thank you Lisa, for sharing your heart. My legal name is Jenifer, spelled with 1 N. So it was always fitting to spell Jeni as is. I’ve went through major changes in 2012. In May I felt as though I was going to loose my life in a role over vehicle accident. I’m still patching up the peices and in October, my motto has been “love life, love living. So sorry to hear of your loss, the fact that I remind you of her isn’t weird at all. Maybe somehow, some way she’s reaching out to you.

    I originally found you by search Sicily. I know I will never make it there, despite my roots.

    My reason 2 B sorry is different in each case. In your case . . . let’s just say, “I’m sorry I had to follow you”. I’m too impatient to go searching for you, and I can’t do the recent comment thing as I only choose to comment on your post from time to time.

    Rock On!
