Teagan's Sandbox

About Me

Hi! My name is Jennifer Gaskell, I’m 28 years old and I’m married to my best friend, Cary. We currently live in a northern Virginia suburb outside of Washington, D.C. with our baby girl, Teagan and our chocolate lab, Reagan.

My time after college was spent working for a defense company in a program management/finance role. I recently transitioned to life as a full time mom. I have always had a passion for writing so this blog was started as a way to document the trials and errors of my motherhood journey, the day to day of being a stay at home mom, married life, occasional recipes/craft projects and my never-ending cycle of trying to eat healthy and get in shape. I believe in sharing honestly and authentically. What is here is my life, no sugar-coating, no need for a persona. I find there to be freedom in imperfection. And since stay at home moms obviously don’t have anything better to do, I figured this blog would fill my time between changing diapers and running the neighborhood with my stroller gang 😉

I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading!!
