interracial multiracial family photoHi I’m Jennifer Borget, a part-time journalist and full-time creator and mom of two. I love writing, photography and making videos. Cherish 365 is where I’m working to make a difference and encouraging others to cherish every day. I launched this blog as “Baby Making Machine” back in 2008 when I was debating motherhood. It has since evolved into a passion of mine where I share my love of life. In 2017 I rebranded as Cherish 365 to better represent this focus.

Our Story

I graduated with a degree in communications from Brigham Young University. That’s where I met and married my husband at the ripe old age of (almost) 19.

Twelve years, two kids, and several moves later we’ve settled in Austin, TX. From weekend news anchor to homeschooling mom, it’s been quite an adventure.

What started as a pre-pregnancy blog evolved into a baby blog, when we had our daughter, nicknamed Lil’ J, in 2010. She’s a spunky and chatty little girl who sees the best in everyone and truly inspires me daily.

In 2013 we welcomed our son, nicknamed Big T. He’s our little wildcard. Our little joker, and he constantly keeps us laughing as well as on our toes.

Cherish Every Day

I believe in focusing on the important things in life. In love and compassion. I believe in having fun and finding joy in the journey.

Here on my blog I share this journey here several times a week, and twice a week on my YouTube channel. I share my experiences as a millennial mom, our stories and lessons we learn as we strive to make a difference, photography and videography tips, and our family travel adventures. Now and then I also share our experiences as a multiracial family, and weigh in on important topics of inclusion and acceptance.

Join the Community

I’ve created fun prompts and tutorials so you can join in on building a legacy. From 30 things your kids should know about you, photography lessons, tips on getting in the photo with your kids, to weekly photo prompts, I’m always working to create more ideas with the hopes you’ll find the inspiration to cherish your daily lives and document it through photographs, words, and more. This time goes fast, lets preserve it!

Whether you want to share it online as well, set aside a personal hard copy, or both, you’ll be glad you took the time to make this journal.

Questions? Email me, or reach out to me on Facebook. Also, join our new #Cherish365 community. I’m always happy to chat.

As Seen On

I’ve blogged parts of my journey for Conceive Magazine, Parenting.com, Bravado Design’s Breastfeeding Diaries, Mom.me, The Stir and Babble. Currently I contribute to Baby Center’s blog. Occasionally I write about raising biracial children on My Brown Baby and issues surrounding interracial marriage on The Huffington Post.

In 2010 I was voted Best Fertility blog on The Bump and ranked #4 in Babbles “Top 10 Pregnancy Bloggers of 2010” and a Top 10 Baby Photo Blogger in 2013. Healthline also named Baby Making Machine a Top Pregnancy Blog in 2014 and 2015. Most recently I was named a Top 50 Mom Blogger by Mom.Me and The Root’s 10 Mom Bloggers You Should Know. I’ve been named BlogHer voice of the year in 2014 and again in 2016.

In 2011 my blog was featured on the Today Show. The Huffington Post and Mashable have also featured my parenting woes, and I’ve been a featured guest on Huffinton Post Live’s “Family Matters.”
