Welcome to my blog

Hello. My name is Jennifer Harris. I am a lawyer by day (and often night!!) and a wife, a mother, sister, daughter, mentor, friend and everything else all of the time!! I have two children, 9 year old twins. I love coffee.  I am a full time lawyer and my husband is a stay at home dad. My life is full, fraught, complex and joyous. I absolutely love reading. I love getting to know people through sharing stories.

Why now?

I have wanted to write a blog for such a long time, but if I had written it years ago I would not know, as I do now, that hearts bend but they do not break.  Work, love, life, career and family can be achingly tough. In one minute you can be high fiving something and the next minute life can bring you to your knees.  I know now that I can be raised up by the power of human connection.  I can rise up by being kind to myself and kind to other people.  Some days it is easier said than done; but I use kindness as a compass even when it seems like the only direction my life is heading is the wrong way!!

My hope

I want this blog to be a place for sharing kindness and stories. I want it to be a place where we can metaphorically walk eachother home.
