I considered starting a blog for many years but never seemed to be able to find the time to do so. I thought it would be really fun to share my experiences, ideas, projects, and research with other people, but I just couldn’t find time while teaching up to nine courses each semester at two major mid-western universities. That all changed when my husband Brian started a fantastic new job that required us to move to north-eastern Ohio. Although I applied for seemingly endless jobs over several months, I was initially unsuccessful at finding employment.

After a brief existential crisis (and with the help of my very supportive husband), I realized that this would be a great opportunity to start the project that I had envisioned for so long. That lead to the creation of the Jack + Bax blog. Here, with the assistance and support of my miniature English Bulldog Baxter, I hope to provide interesting ideas and information on travel, decor, shopping, and DIY that will help others plan great trips, design great projects, and save lots of money.

I am working now as a full-time forensic psychologist, but I will continue to post about our projects, tips, and ideas whenever I can. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog!
