Britany B

Britany is currently lost in Houston, but not worried because she brought plenty of snacks. An avid traveler with a wild, squishy heart--she birthed one baby in New Orleans, the other, in Amsterdam. She recently bought a dog, named him Dragon, and brags to strangers about it. In a former life, she owned a wedding planning business; misses the free cake, the most. When she isn’t avoiding cooking AT ALL COSTS, she is trying to squeeze out some good words, hoping to make a living by using her imagination and pen to scare children (the next great kidlit series, they say). She prefers her drinks dirty. Is anxious. Kind of wishes it was Halloween. And will likely hug you a beat too long and make it weird.

Dreaming of Chamomile :: Celebrating Better Sleep Month

Sleep. That elusive, fickle, spectacular magic.  Restorative. Sublime. Requirement for your continuous breath {she a diva}.  I think about her, often. Curse her name in the dark. Sacrifice my beauty in an attempt to gain her favor.  She...

How to Plan a Worm Funeral {And Other Reasons to Pivot}

It seems like every time I try to make big plans for my day, a worm my daughter secretly hid in her closet in a glass container from The Dollar Tree, perishes. That's dramatic. I’ve...

Progress Report :: Does this New Homeschool Mom Make the Grade?

Homeschooling wasn't an activity I envisioned sharing with my offspring.  I'm not a natural teacher. I'm also pretty selfish with my time.  Also, math. EW.  I'm not even that maternal, most days. I LOVE my kids. Real...
