About Us

Welcome to our world!

Jennie and Jay met in the 90s working in tourism in Alaska, and after 15 years of marriage have kept things lively by not ever both having a “real” job at the same time. Now in our 40s, we are embracing it and continuing to embrace the ordinary adventure of life together.

Ordinary Adventures is an attitude and a way of being in the world, characterized by curiosity, a sense of adventure and a love of humans and the natural world in all aspects of life. This might look like an epic adventure involving air travel and foreign languages, or an epic hike or bike ride to a place far from city lights and traffic noise. It might also look look like dinner cooked at home made from local and seasonal foods, or whatever was on the discount table at MacPherson’s. It might be a walk around a city park or a detour on a bike commute. We celebrate these ordinary and every day adventures and encourage you to do the same.

We live in Seattle, a city blessed to be easily accessible to the outdoors. Mostly we will showcase our area, both in and out of town, and with car free options as much as possible. In addition to adventures outside and in the city, and the occasionally EXTRA-Ordinary adventure, we’ll also share culinary adventures (especially featuring local food or good food for adventures), technology adventures and photography adventures.

Join us! We look forward to adventuring with you!
