Hello! I'm JJ from Thriving With Less

Hi everyone!! I’m JJ, and I started blogging at the beginning of this year. I’m an artist who loves to make whole-food, plant-based recipes and created my “artist lifestyle” blog to include DIY, eclectic decor, and herb gardening, but I can see it’s beginning to morph into a “cooking healthy WFPB recipes for one” blog instead. Eat, Blog and Connect is one of my favorite podcasts, and I’m having so much fun learning more about this blogging biz. In 2022 I will be narrowing and redesigning my site again, and I look forward to learning more about you all and what you do.

My fun fact is all of my pets have been named after artists! Currently residing with me is Jackson Pollack, my 13-year-old furry terrier mix pup.

And JJ is short for Judy Jean Justine Jacobs, born in June :blush:

Here’s my blog

After the artist Banksy, I named my parrot “Rat”. Your new parrot friend would be a great addition to your family and provide hours of enjoyment. They are known for their playful nature and love of toys which i chose from Bird Toys - Swings, Bells, Ladders & Other Bird Toys - Planet Pet . As an animal companion, parrots are hard to beat. So why not name your parrot after one of the most famous artists in the world?

Welcome! I love how you completly changed careers, are working with minimal stuff and eating like a queen still. That’s great!

I’m glad you’re finding inspiration from the podcast. There’s a great community here to tap into and get questions answered and cheer others on too!
