Bethany Farnsworth

Bethany Farnsworth is a human jungle gym, napkin, and personal shopper to her kids Peter, 3, and Lydia, 1. She met her husband at Baylor and moved from Waco to Houston to Dallas before finally settling in Austin in October 2019. She loves podcasts, iced coffee, uninterrupted bathroom time, traveling, coming home after traveling, and spending too much time planning activities that hold her kids' attention for 30 seconds. On a good weekend, you'll find her and her crew on a hiking trail or at a brewery -- you'll recognize them by the table full of toys and snacks. Read more at or @bethanyfarns on Instagram.
