Austin Sweeps, who dat?
Austin Sweeps, that’s me, Birgit [pronounced /ɡ/it]. Stay-at-home Mom of two little princesses, wife to a proud Nebraska Cornhusker, born and raised in beautiful Germany (hence my name? JK), moved to the US in 2006 and to Austin in 2009.
Austin Sweeps, why dat?
Most and foremost to stay sane and relax (stay-at-home parents nodding their heads, working parents shaking their heads thinking “I leave work to relax and she works to relax?”), to stop my brain cells from vanishing, to prove to myself that my long years of education weren’t waste of time, and of course to make a little extra dough to spoil myself, the hubs, and the little ones who kinda pushed me into this.
To help the unlucky ones who are still chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, to make the lucky ones even luckier, and to support local and small businesses with rather tight marketing budgets.
Austin Sweeps, how dat?
