Brittany, originally from a very small town in southeast Texas, met her husband, Brandon, at Baylor University (Sic 'Em, Bears!). She moved to the DFW area in 2008 -- less than a week after college graduation -- to pursue a career in public relations, working in various capacities for two separate PR firms and then doing communications for a local school district before settling into her current role as a stay-at-home mom to their two boys. Their family has continually moved further and further west in the metroplex and has finally settled in Keller (where she hopes they'll be forever because moving is for the birds!). Brittany blogs all about her life as a wife and a mom on her personal blog, Life as the Mrs.

Helping the Mom Whose Spouse/Partner Travels for Work

There are many ways you can help a mom whose spouse/partner travels for work. They don't have to be anything outlandish, but know that whatever you do is appreciated more than you'll ever know. Many of these moms (including me!) get into their own routine and are too proud to ask for help, so sometimes you might be met with pushback, but don't let that stop you from trying.

To the Woman Who Raised Me

I'm sure when you were a little girl and dreamed of becoming a mom, I wasn't exactly what you pictured. You didn't carry me or birth me, but you raised me and taught me how to be a wife and a mother. And most important, you loved me and were just the mom I needed and wanted.
