About Me.


My name is Bree Najera– creator of Room for Joy.

I’m a 33-year old mom with a passion for lattes, toys that don’t make noise and bubble baths. Although I battle daily with chronic Lyme Disease, it is my passion to find joy in life– through faith, fun and a healthy dose of sarcasm.

My super awesome husband and stinkin’ cute 2-year old help me through the ups-and-downs of life with a chronic illness. Although I’m unable to work in this season, my background is in elementary education. I am passionate about integrating my knowledge from the classroom into my daily life as a mom–and hope to pass that on to you as well!

I’ve designed Room for Joy to be like a shot of espresso– a small amount of fuel that provides an energizing boost to your day. Keep your eye out for two short posts on Mondays & Thursdays– every week.

I hope you will join me! Remember that– in an imperfect world, you won’t just stumble upon joy; you’ve got to make room for it!
