Chris Bartnick, Contributor
Chris Bartnick holds many titles to many people. Wife of Dan, mother to Emma and Gerrit, friend to the masses, writer and runner. Preferring a nontraditional education, she has studied human behavior and conflict resolution as a bus driver for Kentwood Public schools over the last 14 years.
Her online journal, (aka blog) LifeLoveandHappiness, has been earning her street cred since 2007. There she shares an honest look at the life she lives and the people who make it worth living. As eclectic as her musical taste, her blog varies from self-deprecating humor, sincere introspection and the vast trials of motherhood and wifedom. When she’s not writing about the life she loves, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, running, finding new music, reading, working out, vacations, stand up comedy and being stalked by her cat and two dogs.
