I’m so glad you found your way here.
This Is Motherhood, began in March 2014. At first I shrugged off the suggestion of starting a blog. Sure, I had been a writer in college, but who would care about my stories now? I was depressed; struggling with a difficult job and recovering from a devastating miscarriage. One night, I wrote a silly post about my hatred for a certain talking blue train, and when I hit “publish”, I felt better than I had in a long time. I was hooked and This Is Motherhood was born. Over the next few months, writing and making new connections pulled me up and helped renew my commitment to being a good mother.
I make a lot of jokes about my kids and about parenting. But one thing is always certain: I love being a mother and I love to write about it.
The lady behind the blog:
My name is Britta Eberle. I live in rural central Vermont with my husband, our four-year-old son, Wolfy, and our one-year-old daughter, Ada. We inhabit fifteen acres and a farmhouse that we remodeled ourselves.
Here’s the short version of my life story… When I was younger, I lived an adventurous life. I spent three years traveling all over the United States and Australia; hopping freight trains and hitching rides. In college I studied creative writing and literature. While tending bar at a cafe shortly after college, I met my husband. He was my customer and he kept asking for refills on his coffee even though it was 11pm. As dorky as this sounds, I knew right away he and I would have an awesome life together. We returned to my hometown to settle down and start a family.
People who have known me for a long time are surprised that I traded in my wild life to be a stay-at-home-mother and a 1950s-style-homemaker. But really, raising these crazy kids is my biggest adventure yet!
