About Affinition

Hello. My name is Alicia Bryant, and I’m the owner and writer of this page. 

And, yes, I know that “affinition” isn’t a real word. I couldn’t think of a better word to define the affinity I have towards my husband and children, though, so I made up my own word. It’s allowed, right?  🙂

I have been married to my husband, Jimmy, for almost ten years now. We have certainly had our ups and downs over the years, but if given the chance, I would do it all over again. We were high school sweethearts originally. After taking a break from one another for a few years, we came back together. The rest is history.

I am currently a mother of two little elves. My son, James, is an eight-year-old little firecracker. He loves sports and building things with his hands. He is one of those that wears this momma out every day, though, with his high-energy ways! Our daughter, Susan, is a little princess. She’s the easy-going type that makes parenting seem simple. She is a six-year-old, Barbie-loving, fancy hair, and all things princess type of girl. We are also pregnant with our third child now, with only five more months to go! Susan is super excited about becoming a big sister. James, on the other hand, could care less.

I started this blog as a way to encourage other parents because, hey, we could all use some encouragement, right? I hope you will hang with me here as I discuss some of the challenges and rewards of parenting and marriage.
