Hi friend! I'm Mandalyn.

I love:
poetry
beautiful food
butter
craft coffee
mind maps
getting lost in a book
organizing and re-organizing
playing legos with my son
everything French
jazz, folk, indie rock, classical
a good pair of skinny jeans
city sounds
dreaming

I believe:
everyday life is beautiful
everyday life is messy
simpler is better
status quo is lame
there is always hope
humans need each other

I live in a cozy apartment in Brooklyn with my boys: one husband, one spirited 3-year-old, and another boy on the way. Jazzberry was born out of a desire for a place to embrace and spill out my creativity in its many forms. I hope it grows to be just the right balance of carefree dreaming and musings about what matters. I’m glad you’re here!
