My name is Brianna Venzke and I’m over-the-moon-happy that you are here. I’m married to a Navy rescue swimmer turned Pilot, Nick, and raising three wildlings, Addison, Elijah, and Hunter. Married at barely 19, I was in the Navy at the time and our story was a whirlwind. Addison made us parents at just 20.. we had no idea what we were in for! Having Eli at 22 while Nick was deployed, and Hunter at 24, made us grow up quickly. As a family, we have moved 15 times and counting!
I’ve been blogging for 8+ years, I began as a wedding photographer, evolved into a brand and website designer for small business owners, and now I do a hybrid of those 2 things in my work for a few select clients. I also sell essential oils + run a print shop dedicated to supporting other amazing women who run essential oil businesses! I’m so thankful for every minute of experience I’ve gained from owning and operating my own business and working from home for the past 8 years. I started when I was only 22 and I don’t take for granted that I’ve always been able to earn a living while also raising my children at home.
This blog began as a way to document our story and connect with others. You’ll find musings on motherhood, DIY for house & home, tech talk, and essential oils. You can usually find me in my office in a pair of high-waisted Lululemon leggings or in the backyard chasing after our kids.
John 4:14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
