Hi all! I'm Brittney! Welcome to my blog!
I'm in my early 30's, married, and originally from New Hampshire (Go Red Sox!), but now live in Charlotte, NC.
I started my blog as an online journal of my experiences as a furloughed pilot's wife. My husband is a commercial pilot and became furloughed for 2 1/2 years, which was a frustrating and challenging time for both of us. I really just needed a place to vent about it all, which is what my blog initially was. For those who don't know, being furloughed means you are temporarily laid off. Thankfully, my husband was eventually recalled and has been back flying for a while now.
I guess you'd call me a lifestyle blogger, because my blog kind of covers a few different niches and doesn't really fit in to just one category. I am part pilot's wife, part healthy living, part running, part trying to conceive, and part random mind dump. It's sort of fitting because I'm kind of eclectic, just like my blog.
A little more about me...
I went to Ohio State. Go Bucks!
I like to run and have run a marathon, three half marathons, and a handful of other races.
I love to cook! You can check out some of my recipes on my recipe page.
(that's my pumpkin cheesecake with pecan sandies crust!)
I also love to check out new (to me) restaurants with my friends. Can you tell I like to eat??
Speaking of friends, one of my favorite things about blogging has been meeting so many great people through it. We have an awesome network of bloggers in Charlotte, and I've also attended a bunch of blog conferences and met bloggers from all over. Bloggers are awesome :)
Once upon a time I was a cop.
I also have the cutest dog ever, Clyde, a mini Dachshund.
I guess sometimes I'm inspiring, sometimes I'm working through stuff, and sometimes I'm just living my life. It is what it is! Anyway, I do love comments, feedback, and hearing from readers, so feel free to comment or email me if you'd like to at lifeinaholdingpattern (at) gmail.com.
Thanks for stopping by!
