I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!

Welcome! I’m Janssen and Everyday Reading is a modern family lifestyle blog for book-loving parents.

Every weekday, I share recommendations of books for adults and children, great recipes, home projects, daily style, and (very) simple DIY projects.

On an given day, you can find me reading stacks of books on the couch with my three (almost four!) little girls, homeschooling, trying out a new recipe, or visiting our neighborhood park. Once the girls are tucked in bed, I’m either madly writing blog posts, watching White Collar on Netflix with my husband Bart, or planning our next vacation.

After six years in Austin, TX, a year in Boston, and two years in North Carolina while my husband got an MBA at Duke University (plus a semester in London!), we’ve finally settled down in Phoenix, Arizona. After nearly a decade of moving, I’m enjoying the chance to explore a new city and state without the pressure of knowing we’re leaving soon. And as long as a place doesn’t have freezing winters, it’s pretty much okay in my book.

Thanks for reading! Leave a comment or send me an email (janssen.everyday@gmail.com), and I promise I’ll try to respond.

P.S. If you’d like to use a photo from my blog, you are more than welcome to it; just please give credit and link back to Everyday Reading. Thanks for keeping the Internet such a nice place to visit.
