Much To My Delight

Much To My Delight

Hey there! I’m Jenn and this is my blog.

Initially, Much to My Delight was a food blog. Then one day, over lukewarm enchiladas, I realized that I’d much rather eat my dinner than set up a photoshoot for it. You’re not missing much–my food photos sucked.

I still eat all the time. I just don’t feel the need to tell you about it.

These days, the blog is mostly a collection of my thoughts, experiences and observations. It’s also my way to unwind after a long day on the job. I work as a therapist at a busy mental health clinic, and things occasionally get heavy. My blog is where I keep it light. Writing is my version of a cold beer.


Most of my stories take place in my adopted hometown of New York City. I’ve lived here for the past 13 years.


My husband Vinny and I live in Astoria, Queens and every night we steeple our hands and pray that it never becomes as hip and trendy as Brooklyn.


And as much as I love the city, I still wax nostalgia about life back home pretty often. I grew up in Texas, and Texans love to spin a yarn.

Here’s where I spin mine.

About Jenn.


Kindly ignore the "food/friends/fun" part on the top of this page. It no longer describes this blog; I just don't know how to change it. Pretend it says something more accurate like "Stories of my Life", or "For a good time, read Jenn". About Me: I'm a 30-something Texan who moved to New York, became a therapist, and married a guy named Vinny from Queens. I delight in observing the world around me, and write about it here.
