I'm a paper doll.
I'm a cartoon.
I'm a chipper cheerful free for all
and I light up a room.
I'm the color me happy girl,
miss live and let live
and when they're out for blood
I always give.
- Pixie, Ani Difranco
I'm B, or Brittany or Britta Paige or Bernie (as most of the little people in my life call me). I'm a pretty simple girl really, sort of the girl next door type I suppose. Sweet but sarcastic, an absolute chatter box and very much a genuinely cheerful person. I am obsesively fond of books and music and movies and crappy tv ( all hail Netflix). I love to sing, I go crazy without a creative outlet (painting, writing, crafting, whatever I'm into creating at the moment) I love to cook! I adore kids ( I absolutely cannot wait to be a mom) and pets (I really really want a dog!) I'm obsessed with homesteading especially the idea of having my very own chickens and an epic garden despite the fact that I currently live in an apartment on the 3rd floor. My family and friends mean the world to me.
I'm sort of on a path of self discovery right now. I've gone back to school for something I really love. I moved to an amazing new apartment with my bestie El. I'm taking on my biggest fear which is learning to drive, late in the game I know but it's been kind of a hard thing for me I was in a very traumatic accident and cars just freak me out. Being brave means being scarred and doing it anyway so here I go.
I also really want to be more brave and active. I want to get in touch with my nature girl side. I want to get out into the great outdoors and have adventures!
I'm a hopeless romantic looking for a happily ever after.
I recently lost my mother to liver cancer. She was beautiful and clever and kind and she fought with a grace and a sense of humor that I will forever be in awe of. I'm still coming to terms with the idea of life without her and taking things day by day so please be patient with me.
