Hello World



My name is Jenny, officially Jennifer.  I am a small town girl from Northern California, now living in a sprawled out city of San Diego.  I miss the green vegetation, crisp, clean air, and copious amounts of rain that make up the Pacific Northwest.  The combination of the majestic Redwoods, the rocky coastline, and the rushing rivers is so powerful that it attracts the most interesting and creative people.  I feel so fortunate to have been raised there.  Someday I hope to return to that part of the world.  But in the meantime, I’m soaking up the year-round sunshine.

Running on Wanderlust was created to capture and share my travel adventures, creative projects, and tidbits of everyday life.  There is nothing I love more than throwing a small pack on my back and gallivanting around the world.  The only way to truly learn about life, people, cultures, & language is to experience them first hand.  There is also no better way to learn about yourself and what you are made of until you venture out, and are challenged by the unknown.  The world will open your eyes, your heart, your mind, & your senses to the most incredible experiences!  Go with an open mind, and you will never regret it.

If I’m not traveling, then I am helping people to live healthier lives (by day), creating jewelry (by night), enjoying the outdoors with my friends and family, and getting crafty whenever possible.  Yet, I find my thoughts are constantly ‘running on wanderlust’… aka: daydreaming of beautiful, far off places.

I believe that everyone has an interesting life story to tell.  Even if you think you live the most boring existence, someone is bound to find it interesting.  I love that one day, my great grandkids will be able to see what it was like in ‘my day’, when a candy bar used to cost only 50 cents (now they are a whole dollar). And so, Running on Wanderlust is going to house my story.  It may not be how one would write an autobiography, but I think it will be a more interesting way to capture and share snippets of everyday life.  Particularly through photos, creative DIY projects, healthy recipes, travel tips, & more.

If you like what you see, grab a cup of tea and stay a while.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers, Jenny
