Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to open up my heart to all of you, my loyal readers, and share something that I’ve been wanting to share with you for quite awhile. My real name.
When I started this blog I was unsure about blogging, the direction that I would be taking, and the overall privacy of the internet. So I decided to develop a writing alias. Kenley Leigh is a combination of my husband’s middle name (Kenley) and mine (Leigh).
The alias worked for awhile. But the lines began to blur. Something happened that I hadn’t planned on when I began this blogging journey. I became part of this amazing community. This is a community that supports one another. We lift each other up to be able to explore new heights. If someone hasn’t blogged in awhile, I get genuinely concerned — hoping that everything is ok. We praise each others accomplishments and are shoulders to cry and ears to listen during harder times. Most of us will never come face to face. But we are friends.
And friends share. They reveal and expose themselves. I apologize for not doing this sooner but my concerns for internet privacy kept getting in the way. But the need to be true to myself and my community is greater than any concern. As I move forward with Green Door Hospitality, I want my readers –my blogging family — to see all of me, holding nothing back.
My name is Jessica. And I look forward to continuing this journey with you, my friend.
