About Me

Hey all, Welcome to my life

My name is Jordan but I go by Jord or JL. I graduated from Gannon University with a Master of Business Administration degree. In college, I worked at a family owned Apple Orchard/Winery run by the most incredible family. Thanks to them, I have learned how to bake breads and desserts, give a proper wine sampling, make handmade applesauce, bottle wine and hard cider, and most importantly, I have learned how important it is to support local small businesses.

However, after college it was time to get a big girl job. I just recently moved to Chicago to work for Epsilon as a Project Manager on the  Digital Strategies Team. When I’m not at work, you can find me exploring around my new city, binge watching Netflix or Hulu, working out, online shopping with money I probably don’t have, trying out new recipes, or spending time with my family and friends. 

This blog started out as a way to keep my friends and family updated on my life when I was in Europe but it has turned into a way to express myself in ways I never could before.

As far as my travel obsession goes… after studying abroad for a semester in Italy with my best friend back in Fall of 2015 (peep the photo gallery), I have developed a need for exploring this beautiful world we live on, getting to meet people from all over the world, and opening myself up to different cultures. From sipping cappuccinos in Italy, to trekking in the Moroccan Desert on camels, to bathing elephants in Thailand, I have seen only a small portion of this world and I cannot wait until the day I can finally say I have done everything in life I could have ever possibly dreamed of.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

Enjoy the show
