About

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

Ray Bradbury

Welcome to Filling Up My Cup! My name is Jen. I’m a 40 something mom of a very tweeny Tween girl and teenage boy. As a result, I’m constantly tooling around town in my minivan with kids en route to one activity after another. My just for me joys are writing, coffee, and travel and I try to squeeze those in whenever I can. I’m here to share quirky little stories of my wonderfully imperfect life and, hopefully, connect with a community of people like me who are just trying to remember to put their laundry in the dryer and to send halfway decent human beings out into the world before our time with them is up.
