Life in The Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project

Meet Jennifer, Cody, Rafel and their sweet dog Murphy over in the 1200 block of W Jessamine St. 

When I asked Jennifer my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….

What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing? 

Working from home with our 10 month old son has definitely been a challenge. I love that we are getting to spend more time with him, but I have definitely felt overwhelmed trying to juggle two roles.  

What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?

I absolutely love Springtime in Texas; patio season as we call it! So, I miss strolling down to Magnolia and grabbing a drink somewhere. We’ve enjoyed plenty of beverages on our own porch, but I do miss the social nature of going out. 

What do you look forward to the most? 

Seeing the rest of my family! My parents and siblings live in Austin.

How long have you lived in the Fairmount? 

Since 2013. We rented our home and then had the opportunity to buy it in 2015. 

Share your favorite thing about living in the Fairmount?

The history and beauty. We are so lucky to be in this neighborhood. We have gone on a million walks and bike rides the past 6 weeks, and I never get tired of the scenery here. 

What is your favorite business in the Fairmount? (And why)

So hard to choose! I love my gym, Anytime Fitness, and I miss seeing the familiar faces there. 

What kind of work do you do? 

I’m an immigration attorney. It is a stressful time working with detained clients desperate to be released, and working with family members separated from their loved ones, unsure of when they’ll see them again, 

What is your favorite thing about your street? 

Jessamine is a unique street, and sometimes feels like a forgotten street because it is alllllll the way at the southern border of Fairmount (dividing Ryan Place and Fairmount). That is part of the reason we love it though, we get to enjoy the character of both neighborhoods.
