About Me

Hi!  I"m Jeanne aka LifeInCle on Twitter and Instagram.

I am a 30-something (is 34 still early 30's?) knitter and all around creative type.  I knit.  I sew.  I dye yarn. I make things.   Like this sweater:

Rocking the hand knits in February 2010 - I knit this traditional stranded sweater in 16 days for the Knitting Olympics.  Hells. Yeah.
I was an architect and a world traveler until my life was happily hijacked in 2009 and I became a stay at home mom.

The Life in Cleveland Family.  3 out of 5 of us are wearing hand knits.
This blog is mostly about my adventures with my kids - a fashion obsessed redheaded kindergartner, a preschooler so cool he's The Dude, and our youngest, a toddler we call Tiny.

I knit and drink wine as much as possible (well when I'm not pregnant).

Thrilled not to be pregnant anymore.
I am a born and raised Clevelander.  This is my hometown.
The Life in Cleveland Family.  April 2011.  Lake Erie and Cleveland in the background.  Just as it should be.

We are raising our children IN Cleveland.  The city proper.  We have a Cleveland address and our daughter goes to a Cleveland Metropolitan School District school.  This is the city we love and we are committed to it wholeheartedly.  Even if my husband is a Steelers fan:

Go Steelers
A really big Steelers fan.
This is my husband, Matt:
Durrow Sweater
Rocking the hand knits.  This is his Durrow aka the Brit Killing Sweater.  It took me 2 years to complete.  Yeah
He's an architect, too.  We sat next to each other in our very first architecture studio at the University of Cincinnati.  We were married in October of 2004:

We used to do all sorts of crazy awesome things like this:
Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu, September 2007.  We hiked here via the 3 day Inca Trail as part of a 2 week adventure in Peru.
Now our crazy awesome looks more like this:

3 small children at Disney was way more harrowing than the Inca Trail.
We have 3 kids.  I don't always write the THREE in capslock anymore but we're still getting used to being the #Stevensonpartyof5

Three is less scary now they can all walk and talk?
We also have a dog.  She's a Basset Hound / Jack Russel Terrier mix that we rescued thinking she was an adult dog.  Turns out she's actually younger than my first kid.

Pictured:  Not a good dog.  But a cute dog who's good with kids so...
So yeah.  That's me.  Feel free to pull up a chair and stay awhile!
