My name is Amanda (or Mandie if you're family). I'm in my 30's. I'm a wife. I'm a freelance graphic designer. I have three kids, one with Smith-Magenis Syndrome.
I'm trying to figure things out as I navigate life. This blog is a place where I share my story and rant about life. My life with my kids that have a few extra needs. My life with the weight that I'm constantly struggling with. My life as a woman - turned stay at home mom - turned graphic designer.
I started this blog to find support as I lost 80 pounds. Then life got in the way, so now I blog about just that - life. I'm grateful that I can be at home with my kids, but some days I get the itch to get back to the real world - whatever that means. My kids are my biggest joy and my deepest sorrow. And while I may complain sometimes (or a lot as this blog seems to be the place I do it the most) I love my life.
I'm honest here. I don't whitewash things. Doesn't mean I'm always as negative as I seem, so please go easy on me.
