Our Motivation for Building This Site
The idea for creating the EverythingBrentwood.com website came about in October of 2006 when I was figuring out a theme for a website. I wanted to start writing about something I can be passionate about - needless to say, writing about Brentwood is on top of my list. We had moved here about a year prior, and we were enthusiastic about learning and experiencing everything that the area has to offer.
What started out as a personal hobby, grew into a much bigger passion as I formed friendships with two other like-minded moms - people I share the same enthusiasm for further discovering this area, raising our kids properly, and helping maintain what made us choose to call this place home. Brentwood is a great place to raise a family. It is not too close and not too far from the jungles of the city and Silicon Valley. We like the fact that there are parks everywhere, and they're newer and cleaner. The orchards and vineyards give the area character and a relaxed feel. It's exciting for us to be part of its rapid development in the last few years, while at the same time steadfastly holding on to its small-town history.
We all moved here in 2005, and we all love it more and more each day. Combined, the three of us have about a hundred or so other reasons for loving it here, which we certainly hope becomes apparent as you read through our website.
Our sincere hope is for EverythingBrentwood.com to become one of the most important community resources for residents, potential residents, neighbors, business owners, and out-of-town tourists of Brentwood.
EverythingBrentwood.com is not affiliated with the City of Brentwood or the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce at this time. The contents of this site are a collection of our personal thoughts, experiences, and discoveries about Brentwood and the neighboring towns. We hope you enjoy our site and likewise share with us and our readers your own thoughts and experiences.
