10 years ago today I graduated law school! Swipe to see proof ➡️ I was a twice barred attorney with licenses in Maryland and Florida by 25 ⚖️ I got asked the question “where do I see myself in 10 years” pretty regularly in interviews. I could have NEVER guessed I’d end up here 🥹 Real life has been so much better than anything I dreamed of! Yesterday, a random Tuesday, my schedule consisted of: - A phone call with my literary agent to discuss possible film and TV adaptations of my upcoming memoir ✍️ - A casting call for a short film 🎥 - A birthday party for my boyfriend’s dog. Spent two hours mid-workday driving around looking for a cake and supplies 🐶 I can’t tell you how often I sit in awe of my circumstances. I don’t have a daily commute. I don’t have to be anywhere I don’t want to be. I don’t have to work with or for anyone I don’t want. I took the road less taken, and it has made all the difference 🙏 . . . . #entrepreneurshiplifestyle #femaleentrepreneurship #lawyersofinstagram #lawschoolgrad #careerchange #careerswitch #careerpath #femalebusinessowners #onlinebusinessowner #womenwhohustlehard #workforyourself #workforyourdreams #femalespeakers #publicspeakers

Bubble gum wall - yay or nay? 🍬 I visited this attraction while in Seattle, found underneath the Pike Place Market. It was… interesting! 😆 I did add a piece of gum to the wall, despite myself. I looked up more info on the @pikeplacepublicmarket site and they said: “The Gum Wall started in the 1990s when local patrons and performers at Unexpected Productions stuck their used gum on the wall. Since those days, the wall has grown piece by piece to cover an enormous expanse of brick and continues to expand down Post Alley.” What do you think? 💕 . . . #seattletravel #seattletrip #gumwall #gumwallseattle #seattlevacation #travelseattle #travelwashingtonstate #travelpnw #pikeplacemarketseattle #pikeplacegumwall #gumwalls #seattlelove #weirdtravel #weirdwednesday

Well, it’s official and I can finally share the big news… I GOT A BOOK DEAL!!!! 🥳💃📚🤗🎊 I’ve signed with @blackstonepublishing for my memoir. They’re an incredible company! They just released an audiobook of The Great Gatsby narrated by Tanner Buchanan from Cobra Kai and He’s All That 🎙 They’re the chosen publishing company for #1 NYT bestselling authors P.C. and Kristin Cast from the House of Night series 🥇 They’re founded in Ashland, Oregon, where my boyfriend and I stayed during his family reunion last summer. It feels meant to be! 💕 This is something I’ve been working towards since early 2020, and dreaming about for much longer. My agent is a rockstar who believed in me from day 1 and I am so grateful to have her in my corner. Big thanks are also due to @mroachsmith for her memoir course and @jswilkov for her query and book proposal coaching! 💯 It is my honor to tell others’ stories for a living. Now, it’s my turn to tell mine.

Sunsets are epic in Puerto Rico!

Can you change your niche as a content creator? I sure hope so 😅 When I started blogging I was a solo female traveler on a tight budget ✈️ But the times, they are a-changing! Years of transformative experiences (and a dating hiatus) led to much-needed healing that allowed me to find Mr. Wright (literally!) 💕 Also, after spending WAY too many hours in economy, I prefer to fly first class 💁🏻‍♀️ I’d rather devote my time to figuring how to save on luxury experiences instead of roughing it in the middle seat with no armrest space and someone reclining into me 👎 So, this is a new Jen! I enjoy romantic getaways but still think women are badass explorers and still travel alone 💪 I still want to help you save money, just on luxury items and the good life 💅 Let’s talk business class, lounge access and spa treatments, baby! All I want to know is, who’s coming with me? 😉 . . . . #contentcreative #travelcontentcreator #contentcreatorsofinstagram #creatorcommunity #travelcreator #travelcontent #travelinfluencers #igtraveling #travelandcreate #creatorsofinstagram #creatorsunite #womencontentcreators #femalecontentcreator #latinacontentcreator

I think so! 😍 For years I worked on manifesting a creative boyfriend who understands what I do 🙇🏻‍♀️ The universe sent me @yancywright, who in a past life was a professional photographer with multiple public art commissions 📸 Today, he owns a travel business and gets my entrepreneurial struggles. I couldn’t ask for a better fit! Grateful for moments like this, a sliver of joy forever frozen in time 👩🏻‍❤️‍👨🏼 . . . . #thisisheaven #couplestravelgoals #couplestravel #couplestrip #romantictrip #romanticplaces #romanticdestinations #coupletravelgoals #coupletraveltheworld #couplestraveling #loversgetaway #loversvacation #romancetravel #coupleswhotravel #couplegoals
