Hey! I’m Jena…but you can call me Birdie.

I grew up in Michigan and moved to sunny California for my first real job in my twenties as a graphic designer. Long story short & a couple years later…I fell in love with another midwest kid. After the dreamiest proposal in Paris, I said, “Yes!”. We had a San Francisco City Hall wedding + were thrilled to start our new lives together. My husband Will + I (along with our rescue retriever Dodger), loved exploring so much that we decided to make it a full time thing. We built our first DIY camper van + lived on the road for about 8 months, tiny home style. One baby bump later we’ve settled down in the midwest + are more excited than ever to welcome a baby girl to our fam this March!

 

An eclectic mix of the things I love most, Birdie Brain is a quirky lifestyle blog that illustrates (literally and figuratively!) my life between lettering, lattes and latitudes. Follow along to see my adventures, thoughts and designs created on the go.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Trails,
