Wendy Pence - write at Beauty Brite

Hi! I’m Wendy. I am a SAHM of 1 school age kid (16 year old daughter, L), two adult kids (my 26 yr old daughter, J, & 19 year old son, C) and one middle-age kid (the hubby).

I have been an avid animal lover my whole life having had cats, dogs, horses (when I was a kid), fish, chickens, a rat (R.I.P. Ratty). I currently care daily for our dogs, cats, and chickens. My MIL says I need a cow for fresh milk; I say No Way!!! LOL

Hobbies include listening to music, reading, writing, cooking/baking, canning foods like pickles and green beans, making jams and jellies, crafting, knitting, crocheting, and cross-stitching.

I’m a laid-back mama who prefers not to micro-manage the lives of my family (though I feel sometimes like they micro-manage mine as my schedule mainly consists of coordinating all of their schedules). But, I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.

One of my adult children moved away a few years ago and has her own apartment. My adult son still lives at home, working and attending community college. My youngest daughter is 16 and a Junior in high school and is talking about colleges she might apply to. Side Note: Did you know there are pet-friendly colleges?! I had no idea! She wants to be able to take her cat, Kallie, with her to school.

So, I’m inching ever closer to being an empty-nester, but I’m only in my mid-forties and don’t feel old enough to consider myself that way, yet. One plus, as my kids grow older and become more independent, is that it leaves more freedom to spend time on my hobbies and to learn new ones that interest me. But, looking back, parenting these little people seems to have flown by so fast!

I really enjoy sharing information with our readers — recipes, book reviews, holiday plans, and my thoughts on different products and services I’ve tried. I hope you all enjoy the great content from all of us at Beauty Brite.
