Don’t you draw the Queen of Diamonds, boy, she’ll beat you if she’s able. You know, the Queen of Hearts is always your best bet. – The Eagles, Desperado


y name is Brianna and I’m a wife to a Restaurateur, mother of three beautiful girls, Singer and Vocal Coach, business owner, food, wine and travel lover, as well as a song-writer wannabe. Before my life as a mom, I attended Pepperdine University, accomplishing a BA in Theatre Arts. I dabbled in commercial and radio voice overs and signed with Los Angeles voice talent agency – Sutton, Barth and Vennari, and was also selected in 2005 as a Top 100 Finalist on American Idol: Season 4. I used to think it was a detriment being a “jack of all trades and a master of none.” Today however, I can honestly say I am grateful I had my hands in many different pots because I am able to bring my collective experience together and fully enjoy many different areas of work that all bring me satisfaction. It also keeps me from getting bored!

It was in Los Angeles that I met my husband, Victor and a few years after we had our first daughter, we relocated to my hometown of Richardson, Texas.  I worked in Advertising Sales for 10 years before deciding to be a Stay At Home Mom. Two months after that decision, Victor got the keys to his first restaurant! We are a busy family and this blog reminds me to embrace today, let go of the negative and remember life is short.
