day one

well i did it.  i have been talking with my husband and thinking about starting a blog.  today is the day i finally did it.  we shall see where this adventure takes us.

a day in the life of amanda jane is simply a place for me to ramble on about my thoughts, opinions, feelings, loves and maybe things i don't love so much. :)  
this is also a place to share pictures and fun things my family and i are doing in our life everyday.  photography has become a huge part of my life and i express myself through my photos and other crazy projects as well, so you will see a lot of that on here too.

my name amanda.  my friends blessed with the nickname "amanda jane" a few years back and it stuck - even though "jane" is not actually my middle name.  i am a stay at home mom of 2 young children and wife to an incredibly patient and loving man.  i am lucky enough to have the opportunity to work part-time outside of the home and am in the process of sharpening my photography skills while being mentored by a friend and incredible photographer.  

things that i love: my kids & my husband (that is a given.) my family. good friends who are on my "a team." my camera.  feeling loved. peanut butter. making someone laugh. watching someone open a present that i have given to them. baking cookies. exercise - i love to get my sweat-on and get the tension out of my body and craziness out of my mind.  i love a good purse.  i love a friend who knows me inside & out and still loves me unconditionally.  i love to be sarcastic and dry.  frozen yogurt from golden spoon.  a good book that i can discuss with a friend who has also read it.  feeling accomplished. i love to learn something new.  but most of all i love to be good at whatever it is i do. 

what do you love?

i would love it if you would come along on this journey with me.  i am taking it one day at a time and am enjoying every moment.  sometimes i feel like these moments are slipping through my fingers like "sand through an hourglass" (as one of my good friends says [hi kamee!]  and i want to be able to savor every bit of that sand.  i thought a blog might be a good way to do that.

alright. enjoy your day.  i am.  it's a great "day one" and cheers to many more to come!
