I am a stay-at-home mother of twins. My nom du plume used to be Jjiraffe, as I resemble a giraffe and thought the spelling was clever. (I misspelled it to resemble my own initials!) Turns out, no one could spell it or remember it, so I've decided to use my own name. My blog name is also too long. I'm terrible at naming things. I love traveling, reading, pretending to be glamorous and eating at really fancy restaurants. I hate cleaning messes, seeing my hair with its natural roots showing through, being tired and eating at home. The truth is that I do very few of the former and a lot of the later.
Each day in 2011 I tried to write about joy. Eh, I mostly complained. What did bring me joy was the friends I made through blogging. Yay, friends!
