Hi there! I’m Rebecca Brown Wright, and I’ve been bothering the internet with my words since 2008… or thereabouts. This blog began as a place for me to share art, music, books, and cultural things I love, but it quickly morphed into a place where I talk about myself. I’m sorry.
I grew up in Tracy, California, but have since found my heart belongs to Salt Lake City, Utah.
I used to be a journalist and piano teacher, but when Baby #2 was born, decided to switched my life all around and work less. If you want to read about why and how I made that decision, read this: Finding satisfaction as a stay-at-home mom. Now I spend time with my two adorable and intense kids, copy edit for SheKnows.com, and occasionally hang out here at Thrilled By the Thought.
I also volunteer for the Salt Lake chapter of Oxfam America. Check us out! Oxfam SLC
Thanks for reading, and please come back again!
