Meet Brandi 

Not your mama’s stay at home mama, Brandi Wigley has twin toddler girls, is a top Faster Way to Fat Loss coach, addicted to gummy bears and her life motto has become “control the chaos”.

Needing to get away from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, Brandi, her hubby, twin girls and in-laws loaded up in their family van. The family took in the sights and sounds of downtown Milledgeville while dining along the sidewalk at The Brick. With full bellies they jumped in a boat rental from Sinclair Marina and bounced along Lake Sinclair, stopping for quick swims for the girls. The family returned to downtown before the drive home for a quick caffeine boost from Blackbird Coffee.
