Arielle Jagow


Book Lover Turned Blogger

Arielle is an avid book lover turned book blogger. She believes in the importance of a good book, a hot bath, and a large glass of wine. This book lover lives in Southern California with her husband and their adorable cat Ares, equal parts feisty and cuddly. They often joke that Ares is like a sour patch kid; first, he’s sour, then he’s sweet.

By day Arielle works in employee health and benefits at a large company. Her employer consistently makes the Best Places to Work in her local county’s Business Journal. She spends her evenings and weekends reading, blogging, and enjoying life.

Reading: A Lifetime Love Affair

A love of reading is one of the best gifts you can bestow upon yourself. And it stems from learning to read at a young age. One of Arielle’s favorite memories as a child was planning which books she would buy during the Scholastic reading fairs at school.

Growing up in a family who loved reading, paired with Arielle’s love of a good story, eventually led to a beautiful life-long love affair with books. Gifts and treats usually included books. Arielle spent birthday money on – can you take a guess – even more books! Finding a comfy chair and settling in for the afternoon to get lost in a new world crafted by a talented author is a favorite pastime for Arielle and remains to be one of her favorite activities.

Living Life With Joy is a bookish blog where Arielle shares her love of reading through book lists, reviews, and recommen

dations. Her greatest passion in life is to ‘find joy in living each day to the fullest.’ It is another reason why she is absolutely thrilled to be a National Day Calendar® Ambassador!
