Two things happen when you post photos of desserts and vacations. The first is that people presume your life is perfect and easy. The second is that they want to know how to get the life you’re leading.
Here’s the truth: My life has just as many ups and downs as anyone else’s life, and I got here the old fashioned way — I worked for it.
What I hope is that this site will inspire you.
The recipes and photos demonstrate a consistent approach to experimentation that is the hallmark of my personal and professional life. The vacation posts and photos will open up all sorts of examples of the family fun I hope you’ll experience as well. But maybe it’s the other articles — the candid stories and the work-life balance posts — that will impact you or challenge you most.
I love my family, work, what I do, and the constant challenges in front of me. I share the trade-offs, challenges, decisions, and so much more of my journey to help guide you, as only a blog or journal can, to connect the dots between cause and effect. After all, those desserts and vacations are the results of a life of focus, decisions, and hard work.
I hope you’ll join me on my journey to live an inspired life.
About Jennifer Bourn
Hi there! I’m Jennifer Bourn, and I am so happy you’re here!
Here’s my short professional bio…
As founder of Bourn Creative, Jennifer is an award-winning designer with a penchant for writing, white space, tea, and Legos. She has been in the design, web, and digital strategy trenches since 1997, working with corporations, casinos, professional sports teams, magazines, creative agencies, political campaigns, small businesses, and entrepreneurs alike.
Today she consults on brand, website, content, and digital strategy as founder and creative director for Bourn Creative, a full service design agency, specializing in web design, brand design, and content strategy, with WordPress as their platform of choice.
When not obsessing over pixels, margins, and type, Jennifer manages the Bourn Creative brand, writes for the company blog, and manages the creation and iteration of internal systems and processes. She speaks regularly at virtual and live events, conferences, and workshops across the country, co-organizes the Sacramento WordPress Meetup, and is lead organizer for WordCamp Sacramento 2016.
Jennifer is a mom of two who hired her husband to be her boss (go figure) and do everything she doesn’t like doing. She is learning to cook, swoons at the sight of colorful office supplies, and has never met a whiteboard she didn’t like. When not working, she takes family adventures, dates her husband, blogs here at Inspired Imperfection, plays board games, colors, and builds Legos.
