For as long as I can remember, I’ve been “Bee”.
Sometimes I’m Brit, Brittany when I’m in trouble, but always Bee.
Allow me to reintroduce myself, I’m Brittany Bee.
For many years, I felt like I had nothing good to say. So I let this blog drift off into the darkest corners of the internet. A distant memory to fade and be forgotten. The last time we talked, I was freshly graduated and about to embark on a new adventure to Idaho. That adventure has come and passed. I have learned a lot and even gained the love of an English Mastiff named Aslan. It has been a long journey, but I have found my voice again.
At 26, I’ve returned to my roots in my little homegrown hometown of Silverton, Oregon. A town that has more coffee shops and churches per capita than most cities. Those two things (coffee shops & churches) speak strongly to the population of this tiny town. We love our coffee and we try our hardest to be good people.
Stuck on the side of the road or hitching for a ride? You can bet that we’ll help you out. In this town it’s not about what you have, it’s who you are that matters most. Around here, we wave to everyone and we brake for tractors. This town is in no way the marketing metropolis I thought I would make a name for myself in.
That being said, I didn’t give up my big advertising dreams. In short, I took a three year hiatus from the ad world to move and learn some important life lessons. But all country roads will take you home, and I ended up back on a marketing team for one of my favorite companies here at home, Wilco.
For those of you that don’t know, Wilco is an Oregon founded and vastly expanding company. Like most Oregonians, I love the “local” feel of Wilco. Most Oregonians know Wilco as the friendly farm store with blazing blue roofs and fluffy baby chicks. Above all, Wilco is a company that relishes in its roots and sticks to its values.
Here’s to a new chapter, and a new adventure for this girl and her Mastiff.
