You know, Nike had it right.

You have to Just Do It.

You have to get up. You have to start. You have to.

You have to Just Do It.

So when it comes to a 1st blog entry, I have to Just Do It. No excuses. No more procrastination.


Just Do It and be on my way.

So here I am writing my 1st entry. I’m actually writing this in a big fat spiral bound journal (one that I bought to give a friend but decided to keep for myself) while sitting in my bed.

And as introductions are supposed to go, I believe I am supposed to, somewhere in here, introduce myself.  TAAAA-DAAAAAA….Here I  Am! Jenny White.

I considered using a pen name for this adventure, but I have always thought that pretending to be someone other than myself was too tiring…too much work.  So this is me. Wide Open. You’ll learn about me as we go through this journey, but here are some basics you might like to know about me:

  • I’m married. We just started year 10! And it has been an adventure to say the least.
  • I’m the mother to 3 sweet babies that I often refer to as my “delayed triplets” since they are each 17 months apart. And no, I didn’t plan it that way. I didn’t plan it at all. But that’s another blog entry. Or rather, that’s another MONTH of blog entries.
  • I grew up in rural Tennessee and returned after 2 stints abroad, 2 college degrees, 1 venture up north.
  • I love Jesus, cotton farmers, carpenters, artists, trees, gardens, and just about anything with words on it.

So there. it. is.


And normally the writer might say something like enjoy. But frankly, I don’t really care if you enjoy this or not. Enjoy, in my mind, is always happy–like the first bite of the birthday cake your mother always made when you were little. That is IN JOY.

What I do hope is that you relate. That you find it real. Real doesn’t always = enjoy.

Sometimes real makes me want to spit it out. Sometimes swallow it fast so I don’t have to taste it.  Sometimes savor it.


That’s what I hope this is to you.

That’s what I hope it is to me because this is wHere Life is Real.

See you down the road,
