I’m Brittney, it’s great to meet you! I am a 28 year-old mom of two, soon to be three pretty cool little humans! I’m lucky enough to be married to the man who I can call my best friend. Together we take life day by day and embrace the craziness that is life!
Who am I exactly? Do you have all day? Joking, I’ll try to keep this short and sweet- but still give you an idea of who’s words you’re reading. I was raised in the beautiful state of Rhode Island. Rhode Island? Is that like Long Island? I get that one a LOT… no, no it isn’t. Rhode Island, the smallest state in the union, and one of the most beautiful at that! Growing up I was always that kid that was in trouble for being “too social”. I love to talk, I love making friends! I am possibly one of the most passionate people you will ever meet, known to take an idea and not just run, but sprint with it. Throughout my high school years I took to writing, it was so therapeutic to me. Calmed me when I was anxious, something about pouring my soul out onto paper- yes, I was old school. Pencil and paper, here. As I got older I got busy and got away from writing. That’s kind of what happens though, right?
Eventually, I was somehow lucky enough to land my dream job as a flight attendant with a major airline. Must have been that whole “too social” thing, huh? I couldn’t believe it, I was lucky enough to be paid to travel the world, make friends in every city, try foods from different cultures. I was paid to walk around and get lost in cities like Barcelona and London. Through getting lost, I found myself. I used to deplore being alone and this job helped me to grow and enjoy having the time to myself. I loved having the flexibility to decide more or less where I travelled. But occasionally, things came up and I was assigned a trip that was not so appealing to me. Growing up on the water, I had no real desire to visit the Midwest or any land locked state for that matter. I was given a trip with a 24 hour layover in Kansas City, MO. Really? What is there to do in Kansas City for 24 hours? I tried so hard to get rid of that trip- which usually I had luck with, but not this time. And that my friends, is called fate. Because that is how I met my husband. That witty man, with sunburned skin, a t-shirt, ripped jeans, a beat up baseball hat and a big Jeep. The rest is history.
That’s a little backstory on how I became the wife and the mother that I am today. I love to travel, we do it often, however its all domestically now. I love being a stay at home mom, but I am that person who NEEDS to be busy! So I taught myself to sew and opened a children’s apparel company called Inspired Apparel Co. and then decided I needed to learn photography to get great product photos. That turned into yet another passion of mine. I started staying up all hours of the night watching tutorials and taking online courses and then started taking sessions, so there is business number two that led me in this direction of blogging. Mix in my life-long passion of writing with the fact that I am social and easily inspired by SO many subjects, it only seemed fitting I start a blog. So here I am, blogging my life. The good, the bad, the delicious, the trying times and the exciting times. Welcome to this crazy little life of mine. We homeschool, we love our church, we love to eat, we love to travel and be outdoors and you will get a glimpse into all of it. So grab a seat and buckle up, it’s sure to be a wild ride for us all <3
