About Me


Hi, I’m Janna.

I live in Northern Virginia with my wonderful husband, two sons, two dogs, and two cats (you can imagine what our house sounds like).  I have a degree in architectural studies from the University of Illinois, with aspirations to be a pastry chef, counselor, designer, domestic maven, florist, herbalist…

I’ve come to live in this after four years in North Carolina, four years in Illinois, and a childhood spent largely in Germany and Belgium.  I’m trying to find a way of life that combines our current, suburban-metro location with my Midwestern and European sensibilities, and I won’t lie, it’s been tricky.  I believe that a book can change your life (I haven’t found mine yet, but I’ve found some that have made me think about it), that poetry should be taken daily, and that cooking and eating with friends and family is one of the best, everyday experiences we get to have on this earth.

So please, drop me a note and say hello.  I can't wait to hear from you. (pastryandpoetry@gmail.com)
