Hello friends!  I’m Jena and I’d like to think of myself as a young mom of two whose goal is stay up to date with the real world by being a #ModernDayMom.

After graduating with a teaching degree in art, I moved from Ohio to Grand Rapids, married my husband, Kurt, and now have two perfect kids under two, Lillian and Weston. Being a stay at home mom is the best job in the world and I would never change it.  We just got done building our forever home and I can’t wait to move into it this fall!

Pearls and Paint was created for me to just write about my life, including fashion, being a mom, and a couple things in between.

I hope you love this blog and thank you for stopping by! If you follow along, you’ll be in for a good ride.  Your support and positivity means everything!
