Simple Local Life helps people enjoy a simple life with meal plans, recipes and highlighting all we have to offer on the South Shore.

Hello, I’m Jennifer…but you can call me Jen. I live on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia with my husband of almost 20 years and our three children – 18-year-old Boy/Girl Twins, and a 13-year-old daughter. We are a hockey/soccer/basketball family with a busy life and a full house. I enjoy cooking (not every day…but most ) and meal planning, which I have even taught courses on. Simple things in life make me happy.

My Sister in Law Heidi Jirotka is a talented photographer (and I’m not just saying that because she is family! 😉 ) who will be helping out occasionally with some of the photos on this site. You can check out her website if you are interested in seeing more of her work.
