starbuck076As I type this, I am listening to the sounds of my crying four year old daughter telling her daddy that she doesn’t want to go to bed.  I have to smile a bit – even though seconds before I was ready to bang my head against the desk top from hearing her whine about needing cheese and crackers before bed.  How it changes from being so young and not wanting to end the day to being a “grown up” and looking forward to getting rest to restart the next day.  I remember being anti-bed myself as a little girl.  Now, when the clock hits 9:30 PM, I’m ready for sleep!

I have no idea what I’m doing at the moment, but I needed to start this today.  I needed to BEGIN anew.  So I am publishing my very first blog for all the world to see.  This is brief – because – yeah, it’s bedtime and we have two littles.  But I needed to ensure that this was complete.  Because I have been procrastinating for far too long.  Because there are always a million reasons NOT to.  Because I am tired of watching everyone else do what I want to be doing.

So, yep….this is it.  This is me.  Get ready.  We will learn together.  We will grow.  We will do this.  (Mostly me, but I’m trying to pep myself up here. Haha!)

Thank you for joining me on this journey….It’s going to be a really fun ride!


xoxo, Brandi’

The Greatest Adventure is What Lies Ahead.



Single, 40-something, working mama of 2 amazing kiddos, Mackenzie and Marshall. There's no judgement here in this little space of the web - in fact, if it's 8:30 AM and you grab a glass of bourbon, I will find mine and join you. We are all just doing the best we can with each gifted day. It's a brand new day and that's something to celebrate.


  1. I am so excited to read each one. You are an inspiration! The coffee one speaks to me ☕☕ Good work, Brandí ❤❤
