Mom About Town – Francesca Brennan

5 Things I’m Loving Right Now  

To say Francesca Brennan has boundless energy is an understatement. A principal of Entablature Realty, she also is a founder of The Merry Antoinettes and the artistic marching parade Krewe Bohème.

And, she and husband David Kirby are in the process of building a country home in Mississippi while homeschooling daughter Elliotte (6), and son Truman (4) this COVID year. 


Sandy Run Farm is absolutely beautiful and our go-to for country berry picking, picnicking, and their fall pumpkin patch. Sandy Run Farm, 1092 Brooks Rd, Purvis, MS,


I love to go up and down the aisles of Dop Antiques and shop for architectural salvage pieces and antiques. They have just the most delicious antiques. Dop Antiques, 300 Jefferson Hwy. 


Living in Broadmoor, the Keller Library is our special place. The kids adore the free “take & make” craft kits they give out every two weeks. Rosa F. Keller Library, 4300 S. Broad Ave., 


We don’t have a dog, so Elliotte gets her fill of dog watching at the Wisner playground. We’ve also hosted several of her birthdays there. Wisner Playground & Dog Run, 4877 Laurel St., 


New China, just off Tchoupitoulas in the LGD, is absolutely delightful! It’s family owned and operated, and a great hidden gem! It’s the whole family’s takeout favorite. New China, 1885 Rousseau St,
