Hi! I am Brittney, thank you for stopping and reading my blog. I am a stay at home mama to 5 and an entrepreneur. Between my husband and I we have 3 businesses.
I have been pouring out into this little space in the world for over 6 years now. This picture below is of me in Africa, on my first trip. This is a picture that actually shows you that dreams, or at least parts of dreams, do and can come true.Not for a lack of pain, heart ache, hard work or sacrifice, no those things are a must for the beauty that we search for, they go hand and hand.
You see this is why I blog, because in this moment as I write, and I look at this picture I am being stirred inside. I am being reminded, dream. So it's mostly selfish but my hope is that maybe, just maybe, I can get you to dream too. Not my dreams, but your dreams.I am a mother to five beautiful babies, one of those 5 being my sweet Niece.I am a wife to my Jesus-loving, gentle, yet fierce husband, Luke. He was the one who captured this picture, knowing that he desperately wanted to see my dream come true, he rejoiced with me because it is his dream too. These two are also proof that dreams come true, being married to Luke and having all my babies. Oh and you know ain't none of that easy, yet it's still beautiful. I am a big sister to 5 brothers, 4 step brothers, and 4 sisters, being a big sister is important to me, so it's hard that I live far from all of them. I love summer first, then fall, then spring and winter last. I was born in Ohio but throughout my life I have moved all over the country, from sunny Florida to red soiled Alabama to southern love South Carolina. My husband and I met here in beautiful Fort Mill, South Carolina where we live now. We travel all over and our plan is to one day live full time in Africa with all our babies as missionaries, where I want to hold and kiss orphaned faces, for as long as I am able. I love Jesus and all the people that He died for. My life has been changed and blessed by His never ending love! His personal love for me and my family on a daily basis fuels me with a passion I can not contain. I have chosen to give my life to Him and His people.
I love being a mommy! I tell people often that our children make us better people, and it is really true. In every way they teach me and help me to grow into the person that I have always wanted to be. I adore their smiles, laughs, eyes, lips, cheeks, noses, the way they love and forgive and trust. Yes, being a mom can be really hard and there are days you want to pull your hair out and run in the back yard in big circles screaming. But those moments pass fast and don't compare to the joy and love that they give. I dream of adopting a little African boy and girl, and an Asian little girl. I dream of their names, their faces, their smiles, tears, fears and all that they will bring. I dream of giving them a loving family of brothers and sisters and mommy and daddy, that will love them, in all their ways good, bad, and ugly!
I love making things, creating, eating healthy and all things sweet and bad for you too, dancing, singing, being with my family, taking pictures and sharing it all with you! The 50's, 60's, and 70's are my favorite. Part of the way I express myself is through style, by dress, home decor, art and so on.
I love to love and Jesus is teaching me how! If you are here please follow and comment! And I am looking forward to getting to know you!
My Handsome husband
