Hi, my name is Amanda!
I was born and raised in Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) in 2010. After college I half excitedly/half nervously accepted a job offer in Southern California, packed my bags, and moved across the country. While living there, I met the man that is now my husband and a few years later I convinced him Texas was the place to be so we moved back to my home state. We have been in Texas for two years now!
In 2016, our world was turned upside when my husband was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy and went into kidney failure. It was a very challenging season of life and I struggled through it. We are so thankful my husband received a kidney from his brother in 2017 and life started to return to a new normal. We have more challenges ahead of us and through it all, I am realizing how important it is to focus on the positive things in life. I try my best to approach every day with a thankful and grateful heart, which is the inspiration for this blog. I’m not perfect at it and I have my bad days, but hopefully through my small corner of the internet, I can share how everyday things keep me feeling positive.
I will be posting about all of my favorite things: food, family, fun, and furbabies!
