About Me

Women really do rule the world. They just haven't figured it out yet. When they do, and they will, we're all in big big trouble. ~"Doctor Leon"

My name is Jinny. That is not short for Jennifer. I live in west Texas, just about as west as you can get before you hit desert. I'm surrounded by cotton fields and sheep. I was born in 1980, you do the math. I have a Mom and one younger sister. We are an extension of a much larger German Texan family that I am very proud to be part of.

I married my husband, Jeremy, in 2000. I was 19 years old. I don't recommend that for everyone, but its worked out for us. My husband is my home. With him I can be myself completely, no matter how weird, silly, or unattractive. Even after all these years I'm still madly in love with him. He is my very best friend.

We have two dogs. Duke, the three legged collie mix. We don't know what happened to his leg, we adopted him that way. He is the best dog ever. Lola is our pug mix. We've had her since she was born. She is the most spoiled dog ever.

We have two cats. Otto, the 'third dog' that can't have table food anymore because he is diabetic...sad day. And Harley, our bossy boots.

I'm not a writer, but I like to write.
I'm not a photographer, but I like to take pictures.
I'm not a chef, but I like to cook.
I'm not a runner, but I'm learning to run.
I'm not a trendsetter, but I like fashion.
I'm not an expert, but I like to give advice (advice/opinion..tomato/tamato)

I love margaritas, chocolate ice cream, romance novels, sleeping in, sparklies, finding a good deal, girl time, coffee, laughing until I cry. I'm very passionate, I'm very opinionated, I can even be a little judgemental. I am loyal, straight forward, and drama-free.

  1. Hi Jinny,

    Wow! What a story. You are an inspiration.

    It seems we have a fair bit in common. I have a cat and two dogs (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers) that I spoil shamelessly, my husband is a musician, and I love to write. We couldn't be much further apart on this continent, though - I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.
    Good luck on your journey.

  2. Dear Jinny,
    I am looking forward to getting to know you better.
    I love your 4 pets.
    I have only one - beloved German Shepherd.
    kind regards from another continent!
