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!
