Meet the cast

Just in case we haven't met before, I'm JEM. I'm 27, married, mother of one. I grew up in Idaho. I like writing. 

This is Jake.
He's my husband. He's 30. We've been married for 8 years. He grew up in Las Vegas. He likes science.

This is Jethro.
 He's my son. He's 2. He was born in Germany. He likes trains.
We just moved from Dresden, Germany, to San Diego, Calif., where Jake's working on a post-doc putting his computational biology Ph.D. to work in the world of psychiatric genomics. I'm continuing my independent research in diaper changing and nose wiping with a new emphasis on potty training and the ABC song. Jethro is currently writing his master's thesis on counting to 12.

I'm glad you came to visit us, and I hope you'll be back. There will be more to come.



  1. Yay! I am glad you are blogging.

  2. I clicked on the "comment" link mentally preparing what I was going to type. Then I saw that M said exactly what I was going to say. So I am saying all this nonsense instead. But yeah, I am happy to read more about your adventures. You have such a great writing voice that it would be criminal for you to stop blogging.

  3. Jasmine! I just love you and adore your writing! Fyi, I love reading your blog and keeping up on your adventures! Hope all is well!


  4. Nice to have you back Jaz. BTW that beach makes me drool.

  5. This is so cute! I loved meeting the cast. You have such a way with words... and can make me laugh. I hope you enjoy San Diego. It's one of my favorite places in the whole wide world! (This is the girl that knows your cousin, Sam via my husband. Weird small world.)

  6. Wundervoll! Ich freu' mich, wieder von dir zu hören!

  7. Wahooo!!!!!!!!! All is right with the world now that you are back in my internet life. :)

  8. WOW WEE I can finally leave a comment :)
    California looks GOOD on YOU!
    We love and miss you and look forward to spending more time with you when we all live a little closer.

  9. Glad you are continuing the blogging...a lot of different adventures back here in the states! We are coming to CA in July. I hope you'll be in town so we can connect with you and see your new stomping ground.

  10. Hi Jem, I just found your Blog and I´m so excited you´ve lived in Dresden! Dresden is such a beautiful City! Have you met Christina Gehlauf???
    Liebe Grüße,

  11. Thank you, commenters. It's a joy to have you back. And yes, Verena, I do know Christina Gehlauf! What a small world it is.
