Hi, I’m Bryn, a native Texan currently living in Austin, TX with my husband and our two curly haired kids. After initiation into motherhood, I realized that every moment of my life was quickly becoming a story to tell; rather than unloading on my best (childless) friend every night on the phone, I started a blog. As a new mom, I’m simultaneously struggling with feelings of total confidence and paralyzing anxiety on a daily basis.
When I’m not over-sharing on the internet or raising tiny humans, I work as the Senior Content Manager for Modernize.com – a home decor and inspiration website. My husband is an attorney and amateur crabber. He’s also an amazing dad and Topo Chico addict. When choosing one person to spend the rest of my life with, he was the perfect fit for me.
My family and I recently spent a couple of years living on the gorgeous and rugged Oregon Coast which is when I started this blog. The name of this blog comes from the Oregon state motto: She Flies with Her Own Wings (Alis Volat Propiis) which, aside from being a beautiful saying, has an interesting history as well. Stick around, I’m full of fascinating and highly useful information. If you are new to my site, a good place to start is here.
You can find my writing on several other online publications including Lifehacker, The Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, Babble, Modernize and The Mother List.
