My name is Jo-Anna and I am a work-at-home mom to my daughter and two sons, and wife to Tobin who is my amazing and supportive husband. We live in the suburbs in Calgary, Canada, but my dream is to one day move out to a tiny little place in the country…that’s where my heart really is.
Inspire by sharing.
And in my spare time (ha!) I am also the editor, director, creator, chief, main cook and home decorator here at ‘A Pretty Life in the Suburbs’! Back in October 2011, I created this site as a way to share my love of a simple home life through uncomplicated home tips and fresh and easy recipes. Since that time it has grown into something I am quite proud of and am so happy to be able to share with you. And it is my hope that by spending some time with me you are inspired to add some simplicity and deliciousness into your home and life!
