Live a creative life.

I’m Britta Jackson, photography and culture fiend. I’ve been a marketing manager, small business owner, event planner, photographer and writer for over 15 years. Over the years, I have witnessed the beauty of the diversity and variety in business, economies, agriculture and more… my only disappointment is often that more people don’t know about it!

Following my curiosity and passion has led me on an interesting path full of experience, and I’m here to share that with you!

Yakima Valley

Yakima Valley

IS IT EMBARASSING TO SAY I DIDN’T DISCOVER THE EASTERN SIDE OF THIS STATE UNTIL I WAS A GROWN ADULT? Turns out, I married someone who’s family moved here from over the mountains, so I knew there was bound to be a lot of Eastern Washing- ton travels in my life. When I...

So you want to start a business?

So you want to start a business?

Many of us have felt the pull to start a business at some point or another - but is it right for you? And how exactly do you do it anyway? I've had a passion for business since I was very young! I was constantly trying to bring together class-mates and organize my...

Find Your Freedom

Find Your Freedom

One of my goals/themes for 2020, set waaaaay back in January, was to find more flexibility in my schedule - for my kids. Because I realized quickly, after having a second kid, trying *trying* to work from home, managing a house in need of 1,000 repairs, and just...

Fall Wardrobe Planning

I have been itching to renew my wardrobe a bit since lately I've really just been rotating through the same few sweaters and skirts/leggings over and over again! I've been wishing to have a high quality capsule wardrobe that I could plan out and purchase...

Planning My Week/Life

Planning My Week/Life

I recently asked on my IG account if anyone was interested in how I organize my schedule/goals/etc. 100% said yes! So, here I am. I’m a big picture person, first of all. I think it’s important first to analyze how YOU best feel motivated, interested, and accomplished....

Getting Things Done

Getting Things Done

You’ve got some goals floating in your head, but are you having trouble keeping them there? I’m the same way. I have an idea - it’s brilliant! I’m going to change the world! Then the phone rings, my baby is crying and I realize I almost forgot to pay my health...

The Minimalist Maximizer

The Minimalist Maximizer

I've been striving for a minimalistic lifestyle for a number of years now. I'm constantly trimming back on what I have and the things I regularly buy. I've learned to ingrain a mindset that questions the "need" for just about anything. Does that mean my house is pure...

Waking up early

We now have 2 kids. And they've essentially made me question whether I really need sleep, since I seem to function on so very little of it. Today, when my baby woke up to eat at 5am, I thought... maybe I'll just get up for the day. Well, "up" as in laying in bed and...

We bought a house

The only thing more lengthy and arduous that I've experienced has to be pregnancy. This might be because we actually bought a "short sale"... I guess. It's been unclear. And the things that you might expect to cause us problems in buying a short sale were, in fact,...

Welcome Back

The last few months have been a wild ride. As I posted about a while back, I started working a full time position. It was great in so many ways! But I'm analytic to the core, and spent a great deal of time while in the position weighing all of the factors that went...
