Nourishing Others & Feeding My Soul

I am convinced that food is my love language. 


I love to eat good food – I’m not doubting that.


But, I’m talking about digging a little bit deeper than enjoying a snack or a meal. 


I truly love to feed others. I don’t know what it is, but I just absolutely love when I have an opportunity to put on a full spread. I always have. To open my arms wide and invite others to grab a plate? Truly fulfilling. 


My husband usually chuckles at the amount of platters, bowls, and utensils that I set out, but something about making food, nourishing people, and having fellowship just really makes me happy. 


I find the beauty in bringing people together over a shared meal, is only enhanced more by the profound thought I put into what I’m actually feeding them. My secret? It doesn’t have to be “fancy” – just something that nourishes their body and makes them feel cared for.


You can ask any of my friends how much I love to pour my heart and soul into making good comfort food, even something as “basic” as steak and potatoes, and they will tell you how my face lights up.


It feeds my soul, the act of feeding others.

Seeing Instead of Looking

With all the distractions that surround, it’s easy, so often, for my eyes to wander beyond my babies - even when I hold them near or snuggle them tight.    I had a moment the other day though, where I had one in my arms, having just had a bottle, and the other...

Hey there, I´m Jenn!

I established Emerald Pine Collective in 2021 to pursue my creative passions after a 10-year career in Human Resources. Through my HR career, I recognized the special connections that I seamlessly made with people, and am fortunate that now, in my creative endeavors as a business owner, to remain rooted in connecting with and establishing relationships with people, celebrating them and their lives, through creative floral design.


With deep roots in North Carolina, I have a true desire to pour back into my local community and environment, so you’ll often find me gifting flowers and even planting pollinator-friendly plants in my community.


As an extension of my creative nature, I am also a self-published author of two children’s books: “What Might You Find At A Produce Parade?” and “Finley’s Findings.”
