Jennifer S. at home near Amelia Island, Florida
Hi Jennifer! Can you tell us a little about yourself and your family?
We are a family of 3 with a beautiful miracle for a daughter. I say miracle because we went through 3 IVF to have her. So you can probably guess she's a little spoiled =). We live in Florida and moved here 5 years ago from Georgia. I call where we live a little slice in Heaven. It really doesn't get better than living near an Island.
Amelia Island, FL
What projects have you been working on with your child and can you tell us about them?
We have several projects since I have been home with her.1. We have made necklaces and bracelets. She made one for her teacher who she misses dearly. Her teacher actually came and picked it up and wears it every team meeting they have together.
I actually graduated with a Bachelor in Art. So I love painting and doing crafts and art so doing them with my daughter is everything. I love putting them everywhere we go for people to find and just spread a little joy. I know how I feel when I find someone else's artwork. It just makes me happy. Some people re-hide the rocks and shells and some are like me. I like to keep each one to remember when I found it and remember the joy it gave me.
What other projects have you noticed around your neighborhood?
I really do have the best neighbors around! THE BEST people in the world.
1.On Easter a lot of my neighbors colored Easter eggs and placed them in the window so we could do an Easter egg hunt around the neighborhood.
2. Our neighbors have also been painting shells and rocks and putting them around their neighborhood.
4. We have a neighbor that has surprised other neighbors by cutting their lawn for them just to be helpful. They’ve done it a few times and I always see people thanking them on our neighborhood Facebook group.
5. Another neighbor for the past 2 months has been calling all the food truck and setting up times for them to come to our neighborhood and set up at the pool. We've had Latin, Mexican, Kabobs, Seafood and Frozen Sweet treats trucks coming and setting up and feeding us some of the yummiest food!
