Profile pictureHey everyone, I’m Jen, and I’m so excited to welcome you to This Happy House!  This Happy House is inspired by my life as a wife, homemaker and stay at home mom.  I will be giving you an inside look into what makes This Happy House what it is today.  True life stories, lessons I’ve learned, cleaning and organizing tips, recipes, things I love, parenting tips, family fun and more!  Basically everything that makes our home and family ours.

I want to share my passion with you and hope that you take from it whatever inspires you.  Make it your own and share it with others.  Whether it’s a recipe for dinner that night, the inspiration to tackle the intimidating closet disaster you’ve been putting off, redecorating your home, something new to try with your kids, or just even a good laugh from one of my crazy but true stories, I hope to make an impact on your life and your home.  We are all a little different, so I hope to inspire you to take bits and pieces from This Happy House and bring it home to create your own happy house.



As I mentioned, I am a wife, homemaker, and stay at home momma to my son, Preston, and fur baby, Bob.  I was born and raised in the northeast and someday hope to move to a warmer climate!  As for now, I make the most of what I have each and every day.  I am so grateful for all of life’s little blessings, including the new addition of This Happy House.

Pre-baby world I worked in retail management and merchandising.  This is where I gained a lot of insight into home design as well.  I took a world that I loved and brought it home to my new job as a homemaker, which I now get to share with all of you.

My husband and I have been together nearly fourteen years and will be celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary in May 2017.  Our first baby, Bob (a loveable and mischievous French bulldog), joined our family in 2005, followed by our son, Preston, in 2013.  I am blessed with a house of boys to enjoy!

I am so excited to be able to share my favorite parts of life with you.  From daily activities and innovative home ideas, to lots of laughs and inspiration, I’m sure there is something for everyone at This Happy House.  There is so much joy in this world to be had.  We need to just take the time to slow down and appreciate it.  That is what I hope to share with all of you.


This Happy House is a space where everyone is welcome.  As your host, I invite you to please come inside, kick your feet up, and take a look around.  I hope that you enjoy everything this site has to offer; the resources, funny stories, ideas and inspiration are my housewarming gift to you.  Please spread the word to all of your friends and family, too!


My house is always a work in progress, and I learn each day as I go.  I would love to hear feedback about what you like, what you find useful, and what else you would like to hear about from This Happy House.  Please feel free to reach out to me at jen@thishappyhouse.com or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
