    A sad story, but the writing is AMAZING!


  2. Ok, ok…I won't spill the beans for everyone who have not read your tweets. What a BRAVE and AWESOME mama though…had to be said 🙂 Just wanted to let you know that I added your button to my blog. It is on the rt hand side just below the "Blog frog" button.

  3. Since I have several must-read blogs; it was extremely tough to choose just one blog. I LOVE Brittany's blog @ Brittany is real and to the point. She is honest and open about her family. Plus, if you leave her a comment, she usually responds back. Hope you guys are having fun on your adventure.

    This woman has four kids (not quads, she had one at a time).

    She was almost fatally injured a year ago in a plane crash. She continurs her journey with love of life, faith, and I love her updates. She is an inspiration and a humble reminder that even when I've had a bad day- it's not really that bad.
