True story.

As baffling as this year has been, true stories still continue to amaze me. I love the authenticity of a good story especially if it’s done by a good storyteller. Before we dive too far in, my name is Jen. Linden Magnolia is the name of my brand, but the name itself has a much deeper meaning.

Linden was the name of my grandparents street when I was a little girl. I was always very close to both of them. My grandmother passed away in 2001. My brand and the names Linden and Magnolia are synonymous because it’s where the past is now meeting the present. Magnolia is the ying to Linden’s yang. Although it was a rougher time at my parents home on Magnolia, my story would not be complete if it weren’t acknowledged.

So that’s the story behind the name, for now. I’m so excited to have you here and to learn from each other. Who were you close to growing up and how do you acknowledge them to this day? I would love to hear your thoughts.
