I dreamed about creating a business where I could be creative every day. I never thought it would be possible or could ever become a reality. The challenge was to find balance as a wife and mother. To have the time to blossom and build a business that is truly an extension of me. It became clear as time passed, but mostly through quiet reflection, fully understanding that being fulfilled and doing what I am most passionate about every day, was what living my best life looked like.
I decided I wanted to share my gift of something that comes naturally to me. The idea to be creative through food, creating exquisite flavours that provided people with an experience in every bite. I finally chose to listen to my friends and family, who believed in me and pushed me to follow my dreams. At that moment, this business idea was born.
In 2010, I started CJL, Christina Jeffrey Lifestyle. With this business, I developed and sharpened my culinary and interior design skills, grew as a business owner and gained much-needed confidence.
After the desire to continue to be with my children, I decided to close CJL and focus on raising my family. During this time, I honed in on my culinary skills, and like most entrepreneurs, I tested things out with my family and friends, developing signature recipes. I loved the idea that I was creating so many beautiful memories through gathering and entertaining with food. It was so meaningful for me, but something began tugging at my heart, and I began feeling a pull toward the entrepreneurial world again. So here I am. To think that all my business plans that I would write down in the pages of my journal have turned into this online shop is unimaginable to me.
