Life has thrown quite a bit at Brittany, but she wouldn’t change a thing because as trite as it may sound, it has made her who she is today. She considers comedy the greatest art form, is a history nerd, loves people watching and is partial to the strange and goofy among us. She can’t live without tea; glorious, glorious hot tea, brewing a cup several times a day in her faithful travel mug. She has been married since 2004 to a boy she met in high school history class, and after eight years in the post-college, full-time work force, is now a full-time mom to two gorgeous little boys, a homemaker, and volunteers in her spare time. Her family calls Boerne, Texas home.
