Hi! Let me introduce myself. I'm Jenica Raney, though I also answer to Jen, Mommy, and, on occasion, Jeniqua. I love naps, Chick-fil-A Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce, belly laughs, and board games!
While I have a degree in Finance & Marketing from the University of Iowa (Go HAWKEYES!), I actually spend my days chasing toddlers and screaming, "For the love!!! Where are your shoes?!" I'm a self proclaimed Stay at Home Momma and I would not trade that for anything. It is the most challenging thing I've ever done. It is also the greatest privilege I've ever been given. Starting in the fall, I will also try on my teacher hat as we embark on our newest journey of homeschooling.
I married not only an awesome Godly man, but also one that makes me laugh every single day. A little fun fact about us...the hubby's job moves us across the country every couple years to spice things up! Resultingly, all 3 of our kiddos were born in different states. We have an Iowan (Brynn, age 6), a Texan (Jaxon "Jax," age 4), a Washingtonian (Jase, age 2), and an unnamed kiddo in Africa that we are working to adopt. We have a chocolate lab (Riley, age 7) that is literally a member of the family and also a cat (Wheezie) whom we begrudgingly tolerate.
We currently live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and anticipate one more big move before planting permanent roots. But for now, we are happy to embrace one of my favorite pastimes: Bloom Where You're Planted!
