About Me

Hello, people of the internet!  
My name is Brittany and I am the author of Pines & Palmettos. 
Here's a few of biographicals:


-Carolina girl

-married to Hubs

-mama to Babycakes


-& most importantly, Christian 

I've been blogging for a while now, something like 6 years. I've waved on blog titles and topics and hosting services and I can't promise what you'll find here. There will almost certainly be talk of books and Christianity. Those are big parts of who I am, so I hope they're reflected here.

After a few years during my husband's military service where we traveled back and forth across the country, we were finally able to put down some roots in our home state of North Carolina. Even though it's been several years since we returned, I still get very excited about being back where I belong.

I looove country music (Eric Church, Brantely Gilbert, & Miranda Lambert are my musical crushes), good whisk[e]y, tomatoes, pickles, and loosing myself in a good book.  Other affections include flip flops, pearls, and blaring the radio down back country roads.

A few posts that help paint my picture include this one about my miscarriage,  or this one about how I struggle with insecurity; this one about the surprise of motherhood, or

Why I'm not Surprised or Upset by Non-Christians
Living on the Struggle Bus
The Sun Is Out: aka Feeling Better, I Promise

Also a few attempts to get organized through daily habits & bag organization.

Most pictures come from Unsplash and are edited with PicMonkey. Sometimes I switch it up and use Stokpic or Canva also. These are great tools for bloggers and I encourage you to check them out!

Anything else you're curious about...just ask!

PS- I refer to myself as Brittany Pines around the interwebz.  Nope, not my real name, but as a former milspouse I’m a fan of PERSEC.  This pen name spawns directly from my blog title, so I figure that keeps it easy to make the connection =] Tank & Babycakes are also pen names.
