Java IV Always

About This Blog

Hi, I’m Jen! My five-year-old twins and I love Tulsa and like to explore places around town that are fun for kids and their parents, too. I work part time and am also involved with numerous nonprofits. My favorite show is Gilmore Girls, and java is in my hand 24/7. Raising twins, I strive to show them they are each unique and one of a kind. Hugs, embarrassing Mom dancing skills and good intentions are how I roll. I cannot recreate anything on Pinterest, but for our family, we are perfectly imperfect.
