How home helps you discover authenticity with Kasey Jones
An interview with Kasey Jones, a co-founder and strategist with Power Your Platform, about her home in Portland, Oregon.
What are some of the places that have most felt like home for you?
I've now lived in Portland over 20 years, and it is most definitely home. It's delightfully weird, kind, and beautiful. Also, my partner and I just went to Greece and are mildly (read: not mildly) obsessed with it. Can't wait to find an excuse to go back.
When home is going really great, what does it look like and feel like? How do you feel?
Probably messier than I'd really like, but full of love with dogs running around, delicious smells coming from the kitchen and the grill, and rosé being poured.
What are the things that throw your homelife sideways? How do you feel when that happens?
Our little house has had a LOT of issues, so we recently spent 6 months living in the guest room as the entire upstairs was demoed and rebuilt because of a leak in the roof. It was exhausting and stressful, but still full of love and joy.
We've learned that homelife starts with us, our attitude, and our ability to be kind and loving to each other.
What are important daily, weekly, or regular rhythms important for you to keep a great homelife?
Keeping it fairly clean and orderly. Both my partner, Andy, and I are messy (not dirty) people, but we've been working hard to be more organized and keep things a bit neater. And it's freaking glorious.
Also, I need healthy food, lots of fruit and vegetables, and easy snacks always ready.
What’s a prized possession of yours or one of your favorite home purchases?
I don't care too much for stuff, so our prized home additions are our dogs. They bring love and joy to everything they do and it makes this house happier and homier.
Kasey Jones is a stellar advocate for mental health & authenticity. She’s 100% able to keep it real, and it shined through in the recorded interview!
Thanks for your authentic presence, Kasey!
Until next time,
