About Me

Hi there! I'm Brittany, the author behind this blog, and I'm so glad you've popped by. 

This little blog started in 2009 as a way for me to chronicle our day-in and day-out lives as nearly- and then newlyweds, but as the years have gone by, it's grown into so much more than that. 

My husband, Brandon and I live in a suburb of Fort Worth. We met at Baylor University {Sic 'Em, Bears!} in 2008, in class, as a matter of fact. Brandon graduated from Baylor in August 2008, and I graduated in December 2008.

We got married on October 9, 2010, in my hometown in southeast Texas. It was by far one of the best days of my life! After our wedding, we spent a week honeymooning in Antigua before coming back to our tiny apartment in Dallas to begin our lives together. 

We now live in a suburb of Fort Worth, and Brandon works for an aerospace development company and I am a stay-at-home mom to our two boys.

We purchased our first house in 2012 and really enjoyed calling that little place "home." Once we were moved in, we spent a month renovating and updating it; everything from removing popcorn ceilings, staining cabinets, painting the entire interior, replacing light fixtures and hardware, landscaping the front and backyards entirely, and dealing with a major flood right after renovations were completed and we lived in a hotel for two weeks! 

On January 29, 2014, we joyfully welcomed our son, Walker. He is truly a joy and delight, and watching him grow into a little boy is nothing short of a true miracle. We are so thankful God entrusted us with his little life!

On May 22, 2016, we joyfully welcomed another son, Knox. Like his big brother, he is truly a joy and a delight, and we are so thankful God chose us to be his parents. 

We moved across the metroplex in 2018 into what we hope is our forever home. It was a hard adjustment, but we are really loving it! Again, we have updated this house (as we did with the last one) and are enjoying making it our very own. 

This blog is a way for me to still document our lives, but also to share recipes, favorite products, and give you a little glimpse into our family. I'm a lover of Jesus, my family, sunny days, Texas in the spring, red wine, all the carbs, shopping, big hair, monograms, my Baylor Bears, and southern accents. 

So, thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll stay for a while and read along with me!
