Hello! My name is Amanda and I am a wife to Justin, mommy to Anna Claire, Christ follower and first grade teacher. I started this blog eight years ago as a creative outlet when I was in college (go Pirates!). Since then it's been a place for me to recap my life, share what I am up to and a place to post a zillion adorable pictures of our 5 month old Anna Claire. I love teaching, reading, cooking and sharing my life with you all. This is such a great place for me to share what's on my heart and to meet so many new friends from all over. Thanks for stopping by!
