my name is justine stuckenschneider (yes, it is a long name).
some people call me tina. or t (and occasionally other names, but let’s not make this into a nickname list).
i am a wife to ryan. and a mother to henry (born in june 2012) and my fur baby, beck (a pug and miniature pinscher combo). we live in chicago.
this blog was started since i was told i “have” to start one, so i did. part reluctantly, part excitedly. i had no clue what to call it (one of my hardest decisions to date, really. i hate decisions) and as people also tell me “you’re so martha” after i share a project, here we are. you’re so martha, justine. tina. t. whatever.
i enjoy being domestic and this blog documents my domestic accomplishments. including but not limited to: cooking, baking, crafts and home improvement projects. the not limited to includes personal stuff that probably no one cares about but i write about anyways so this can be my “diary” to look back at and remember what the heck i did with my life (as i have no memory apparently). and since having henry, pictures of him have taken over the blog. sorry to those who expect the domestic, but you’re welcome to those who like cute baby pics.
(i also enjoy writing comments to my own writing in parentheses)
