I’m Amanda and I live in the Valley of Flowers, otherwise known as Florissant, MO (aka St. Louis). I’m a 32 year old Stay-at-Home Mom of two beautiful boys, my teen and my tot, and am gratefully married to the man I used to wait for on the park bench in my far-away teenage years.
In a past life I was many things: a model, an administrator of various websites, a grievance counselor for a funeral home, an insurance adjuster, etc. I like to think I have finally found what fits me best, a Family Blogger. Writing and sharing stories comes naturally to me as I have been doing just that since I was a little girl. I always knew I would be a writer, little did I know it would happen to be in what we call the “Blogosphere”.
I’m very passionate about books and am an avid reader. I love sharing books that I find at the Library as well as the few authors who stumble across my pages. I may be critical about e-books, but I understand its value in modern day society. I just happen to prefer real pages that I can hold onto and feel on my fingertips. As the wife of a Pressman, my family has a deep passion for the printed word.
We also love to go on adventures! Most you can find in our local St. Louis section, Show Me MOmmies! However, I mostly write crazy stories about battling our pear tree, coping with the new Pre-School and High-School years for our kids, my health issues and coffee.
