For the Love of Blogging » The Jankowski Family Blog

  • For the Love of Blogging began many years ago as the space for a young (and slightly naive) design school graduate. Since that time, I've grown a bit wiser and (hopefully) matured in my design perspective. So, my goals for this blog have evolved, and now I look forward to using this space as a way of sharing my experiences with Braizen, motherhood, and as a Jedi Master of design.

  • That's me: mom, greatest wife ever, designer, business owner, and the single largest contributer to Diet Mountain Dew's vast soda fortune. It's hard to believe that my journey into design and branding began nearly a decade ago with this blog and a drive to create dynamic brands for boutique photographers in the Atlanta area. Today, I'm the founder of Braizen, a small business branding design firm, and I dabble in a handful of other design-centered projects. This is my life, thanks for reading. Look for me on DribbbleFacebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Instagram or head over to Opieh Studios to see all works in progress.

  • You read right – our's son's name is Opie. Well, his really name is Oliver Paul, but everyone calls him Opie. He's a real cool kid who loves to draw, makes messes, get dirty and work on cars with his Dad. He knows no strangers even at 4 years old and we expect he'll never be the shy kid in class. He is known for his many expressions and the conversations he spurs are off-the-wall-hilarious. He has an imaginary friend from California named Jack who is six and can drive. He's not really into social networking yet, but stay tuned. I am sure he'll add a twitter app to his iPad shortly.

  • Aside from being incredibly handsome, my husband Paul is one of the most intelligent people I have ever known. I love him for his nerdiness, mostly because it means he can fix just about anything that goes wrong on the homefront. He's a brilliant engineer, loving father, and always manages to keep me interested, no matter the subject. For all of his awesomeness, I let him maintain a significant workshop in the garage, where he tinkers on his cars, motorcycles, and top secret projects with which I'm certain he will one day rule the world.

Where do babies come from?

This weekend my kid asked How are babies made? & How do they get in Mommy’s tummies?. He’s four years old for goodness sakes! Don’t kids ask these questions when they are like TEN?! And my child isn’t one that can be pacified with “God makes them” – he still wants to know how God does it. He wants some kind of scientific explanation for the whole thing. So… this weekend we talked about sperm and eggs and fertilization… and then Opie wanted to know how the sperm gets to the egg. Thankfully, subject changes work great on four-year-olds. What do you want for dessert after dinner tonight?

Of course, I sorta wish I’d had this story in my pocket on Saturday afternoon.

Cumberland Isle

We just got back from a marvelous place – Cumberland Island. A gorgeous, private barrier island off the coast of Georgia, it’s a haven for wild horses and a deadzone for cell reception. Paul, Opie and I had the opportunity to go there and stay with a client and good friend while I shot of few gigs of photos for a website project that ill be tacking in the next few weeks. Here’s a few iPhone shots that I snuck in. More to come later.
