I’m Amanda.

I started this blog as a creative outlet to my job in the ER and my chaotic life as mom of (now almost two year old) twin girls. I’m in my early thirties and I’ve got a serious love for morning coffee, sunshine, traveling, writing, and creating.

Becoming a mom changed everything.

I thought I knew who I was until I became a mom. Everything that I thought I knew about myself was shaken to its core. In 2016, my husband and I welcomed two amazing twin girls into our lives. All of a sudden, it felt as though every move I made was no longer for myself but for these two babies. Since they were born, I’ve struggled a lot with my sense of self, what it means to simultaneousy be a mom and have a career, and what is worth my time away from my kids.


Some priorities became clearer than ever.

While I have struggled with my professional identity since becoming a mom, there were several things for which my new mom instinct completely took over.

I learned that, as a mom, health became an overwhelming priority to me. Not just my own health, but the health of these two little lives that were now my responsibility.

I fed my girls breastmilk even when I couldn’t produce my own. I made most of their baby food from scratch (turns out it’s healthier AND cheaper). I sacrificed my own wants so that they could establish a healthy sleep schedule. 

In terms of my own health, I finally discovered the food plan that would rid me of my food obsession and help me lose the baby weight and then some. I researched clean eating and committed to feeding my family clean and on a budget. I learned about toxins in our environment and how to reduce our exposure as much as possible.

All this to say: motherhood is a challenge and also the most amazing privilige.

I consider it my job to give my children the healthiest start possible in all aspects of life, and I might as well keep myself healthy.

Because I don’t want to miss a thing.
