I’m Brett Martin, owner of This Mama Loves. I’m a work from home mom of 3 kids ages 10, 8 and 6. My husband and I live in Connecticut with the kids, our puppy Brownie Buttons, cat RosaBeth, a fish named Blue Night, a hamster called Humphrey and 6 chickens. We also collect dust bunnies and have plans for making a village of dust bunny people one day….you can usually find us laughing at corny jokes and bad puns. Our family loves being outside, having family movie and game nights, gardening, cooking, baking, and playing foosball in the living room. We’ll travel just about anywhere you ask us to, as long as we have a suitcase to fit our gear! I grew up in Connecticut, spent high school and college in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and then headed right back to Connecticut after I graduated. My background is in Early Childhood Education. I love sharing easy to follow, easy to find recipes that don’t take a lot of time or effort. Taking pictures is a favorite thing to do! When not blogging,watching the Boston Red Sox, cheering on the UConn Huskies or the New England Patriots, you can probably find me shopping or plotting ways to avoid putting away laundry.
