Hi there and welcome to This Tiny Blue House!

I’m Jenny and I hate writing bio pages.

If you really want to get to know me then your best bet is to follow my blog as I post about what’s going on in my life, parenting and simplifying our living space. If you want more details about me and this blog my first post here sums it up quite well.

In a nutshell though, I’m in my mid-thirties. I’m a stay at home mom to a miracle baby born in 2015. Before welcoming her into the world I suffered 3 losses: a still-born set of twins and 2 early losses. Prior to trying to grow our family I was a law-student turned teacher. I eventually got a graduate degree in education and had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing kiddos on the spectrum. I absolutely loved my career but ultimately gave it up to raise my little girl.

I live with my daughter Margs, husband Mer and a bunch of pets in a tiny blue house in a beautiful Canadian suburb.

If you want to see what I’m up to most days you should follow me on instagram. I’m pretty active there!

Talk to me. I love interact and having healthy discussion. Let’s chat!


  1. Hi Jenny!

    Thanks for reading my post about participation trophies! I love your Scrabble infused theme! One of my posts is about Scrabble in our family. I think you’d like it. It’s called “You could spell pigeon if you had the right letters”. Thanks again!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I stayed at home with three children until the oldest was 21 and the youngest in middle school. If it didn’t mean I would lose the pleasure of their adult selves, I would do it all again. It was worth every sacrifice I had to make.

    1. I’m about 6 hours north west of you and we hit -30 this week. Thankfully today seems to be hovering right around freezing so it’s giving us a break from this extreme cold we’ve been under! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Jenny,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read our blog. Please continue to share your experiences; testimonies are a wonderful and important way to raise awareness and tell people they are not alone.

  4. Thank you for reading… Must apologize for not being able to read your blog (for several reasons, must you would guess I suppose) at the time being. Will try again later, promise.

  5. Thanks for reading my latest blog post. I know it’s stretching things a bit to tag my subject area as “parenting” but all these years later my father (who, by the way, once emigrated to Canada only to return less than two years later) and his parenting style in particular still leave their mark!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Stephanie! The only advice I can give you because I’m really pretty new to all of this is just be you. Write from the heart 🙂 Best of luck!

  6. Thanks for checking out my ridiculous blog! I am now following you- so excited! I’m a luddite so I’m slowly figuring this out…..

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my post – spirituality versus religion.
    Just read your post on how you converted your basement into a lovely home for your mom and really liked it.

  8. I am not very good at this yet, the building relationships part I mean. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking the March 7th post called “Giving Life”. As a Christian, I thought it was important to help other Christians recall the responsibility we have beyond ending abortion. We have a call to care for people no matter when they are in their lives.

    I have also read a few of your posts and am enjoying the blog.


  9. Thank you for sharing. It’s not easy putting it all out there for all to see. I just started blogging and it’s been so fun (thanks for “liking” my Ode to the Babies) I look forward to reading more!

  10. Your blog feels alive with all things human. Emotions flow within your writings (I’ve just discovered your blog). And “mama to 1 living child and 5 angels” – this made my heart melt. Looking forward to staying in touch with you.
    All the love. x

  11. As an ‘OLD’ Person of Colour, born U.S.A. , raised throughout every Province of CANADA, ( Summer Camping, Prince Edward to Vancouver Islands.) I find that YOU have done nicely. Is Montreal’s HABITAT, (“67”), still fun to HIDE in?

  12. What a delightful post. Thank you for liking mine. I too am a professional that took time off to raise my dumplings. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. The alternative would have been foolish stressful mayhem. Congratulations and God bless.

  13. HI Jenny,

    Thanks for visiting our blog (canada150cafe.wordpress.com) and leaving a supportive comment!

    We’re hoping Canada’s sesquicentennial does good things for Canadians and for Canada!


  14. Thank you for stopping by my blog and I just wanted to say I understand being a Rainbow Mama and my heart hurts for your loss. I know my own all too well and I can’t imagine more. *gentle hugs*

  15. While I’m not a parent yet, but your blog is such a wonderful place to stop by and learn to appreciate the simple little things in life. Great job 🙂
