Friday introductions- Hi! I’ve never done one of these posts before, but I’m Amanda and I sometimes feel like an Instagram anomaly because I’m not easily niche-able. I’m a mama of two but I work part time/weird hours. I’m a theatre artist but I dabble across the board in directing, acting, writing, text coaching, teaching, etc. I’m an unlikely gardener an imperfect crafter, I’m an enthusiastic blogger. (You can read my posts at the link in my profile!) and a voracious reader. I love simple joys and intentional use of my time so #minimalism
appeals to me, but I also deeply love memory keeping and holding on to items that have a story that can be passed down. I’m a new runner and a yoga enthusiast of several years. I’m into laughter, music, avocado, the saints (#catholiclife
),wine, coffee, and so much more. I strongly advocate for date nights if you wanna stay married and I strongly advocate for social media free family time even though I’m usually an Instagram addict 5-6 days a week family. I’m a bit of a whirling mass of contradictions, I believe in the power of little by little and every, every minute, and I will defend the Oxford comma forever.
My blog was inspired by setting new goals each year based on the next letter of the alphabet. I’m currently on the year of Es: endure, explore, entertain, everyday, are my current themes. I’m already brainstorming for my year of Fs! I’m looking forward to continuing to reflect on one letter and adventure at a time. I’d love to learn more about YOU! I’m taking a social media free weekend after this evening, but when I get back on Monday I’d love to read about something we have in common or your favorite fall treat!
PS- my feed doesn’t usually have so many selfies in it, but I’ve been posting them for a challenge from @thebalancedlife
... speaking of, I’ll use this picture to check in that day 5 of #tblbacktothemat
challenge is done! (I’d forgotten how much I love #barreworkouts
