For Supernatural fans, Austin is an important city. The show’s two stars live there with their families. Jensen Ackles owns a brewery in Dripping Springs, and earlier this year the mayor of Austin declared June 23 an official Supernatural holiday. If you follow the show, you’ve probably heard of Genevieve Padalecki (née Cortese), Jared’s wife and a costar on Supernatural from 2008-2009. Padalecki made her name in Wildfire, an ABC Family show about a troubled young woman that begins working on a ranch. She later joined the cast of Supernatural as Ruby, a demon that helps the Winchester brothers in their endeavors to defeat evil. It was on the set of Supernatural that Jared and Genevieve met one another. They were married in 2010, and now reside in Austin together.

Genevieve doesn’t do much acting these days, however; for the past seven years, she’s been raising her three children, Thomas, Shepherd, and Odette. She’s recently started running a successful blog and internet presence, which includes Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram. Her blog, Now and Gen, covers a fascinating array of topics. It’s a warm and welcoming place for Padalecki to talk with her fans and followers about life.

Padalecki covers relationships, motherhood, astrology, recipes, fitness, and organization hacks on her blogs and Youtube videos. In a recent blog post, she talks about sending her kids back to school and getting ready for the school year – commenting that it’s a good time to “reflect and reinvent” as adults. The vibe over at Now and Gen is a positive one, focused on enjoying the present and leading a healthy, family-oriented life. She doesn’t rely entirely on herself for content, however; Padalecki frequently has guest bloggers on her website and interviews experts on her Youtube channel. For Earth Day, she invited the founder of Austin’s Resolution Gardens over to talk about how to keep your home green.

Genevieve Padalecki’s vibe is positive, holistic, and encouraging. She uses her platform to interact with her followers, frequently asking what they would like to hear her talk about and what they think of her content. Austin is lucky to have her – but so is the internet!
