Birch Blog

An Introduction to this A-type, know it all, bossy Birch

Guys....I'm Sierra, owner and self proclaimed control freak of Birch Hill Studio. I decided to start a blog section to add to our website because IG is great to put a face to the biz but not enough to put a voice to the biz. Plus I'm super opinionated and have a lot to say. That being said this it NOT a G rated or even PG 13 rated blog. I swear like a trucker and I love taboo topics. This isn't your run of the mill "check out our new stock" blog either. I'll try to keep my posts short and sweet, the perfect read for when you're pooping at work or hiding in your bathroom from your kids for 5 min of "me" time.

I will definitely share stories from my day to day life, so if you're a member of my family of a close friend, you've been warned *Gerran, Stella, Robyn and Kaitlyn*.

I don't sugar coat things and I certainly don't beat around the bush. I'll try to avoid typos but for the past 10 years I've thoroughly enjoyed autocorrect so I'm lazy.

I'll let you know in advance if what you're about to read is a "mom post" so you can skip if you're one of those people who thinks children are gross and sticky.

There's going to be sex stories, fart jokes and poop jokes, frankly these are my favourite topics of discussion.

I'm very honest and very real, I've had more established business women tell me I should tone it down and keep it G rated for work. Sorry doll, not my jam.

Oh and I'm also 35 years old and tend to talk like I'm 27 (ie. "That shit was dope" or "That's fuckin rad") because I spend most of my time with a 27 year old.

Enter Kaitlyn....the 27 year old. You'll read several anecdotes about Kaitlyn because as much as I love this girl to pieces, she constantly reminds me how much I don't miss my 20's. That being said  she's super mature and has her shit very much together for her age. She's the manager of the shop and bestie...she's my Grigio Girl.

You'll most definitely become familiar with my family, namely my husband Gerran and my daughter Stella. Gerran owns a restaurant here in Vernon (Browns Socialhouse), he treats me like a queen, spoils me rotten and spends his days off cleaning the house and going on adventures with Stella. He also farts and poops with the door open...choose your battles ladies.

Than there's Stella, oh my little Stella, by far the funniest and kindest little soul I know. She's 5 years old and has the manners of the downstairs staff at Downton Abbey, "Please" "Thank you" "yes ma'am" etc. The other day while I brushed her hair (which is a daily battle) she wailed "oh the travity, oh the travity" pretty sure she meant travesty.

There may also be a sprinkling of my sister Robyn, she lives in Winnipeg with her 2 girls. She's been my #1 fan and biggest cheerleader for as long as I can remember. She's the one person my whole life who's never doubted my ability to get shit done. But most importantly she ALWAYS  laughs at my jokes.

So that's me folks, read my blog weekly or don't, my feelings won't be hurt.

Ok, that's a lie, I'm super sensitive so just lie and say you read it and you think I'm hilarious.
