Do you ever feel like negativity is everywhere you turn? You have to put in some effort to seek out the positive, but the negative is just pounding at your door?
Are you someone who thinks everything happens for a reason, and tries to make every day, and every experience a learning opportunity?
Do you love to cook and read?
Does this sound like an infomercial yet? 🙂
Hi! I’m Amie. This is the part where I’m supposed to tell you all of my credentials, why you should listen to me, and how I have my life together. But guys, I’m just here trying to figure it all out. I’m a wife, a mom, and an engineer. I decorate cakes, love reading, cooking and math, but most of all I love people.
Why did I start this blog?
I’ve spent so much of life trying to be a people pleaser, and I know I can’t be the only one. I wanted to choose the ‘right’ career path, say the ‘right’ things, and basically fit into this acceptable mold. But the truth is, I created that mold for myself. I had boxed myself in without even realizing it.
Now, as I’m growing, I’m learning to embrace the whole me. I can do a mean math problem and turn around and decorate a cake. Why? Because, that’s what I love. It’s these different (and sometimes random) interests and talents that make us all who we are. If we were all of the same, life would be boring.
So this blog is a place to explore all of the things that we love. A place to learn new things, even ones that we may not have considered before. It’s a place to embrace the real you, all the while striving to become a better version.
So, what should you expect?
I want you to have a happy, positive place to go on the internet. I want to share little ‘wisdom nuggets’ that I’ve picked up along the way, and discuss the things that I still haven’t quite figured out. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t know it all, and I have no problem admitting that. I want to learn from you!
I want to cook with you, hopefully making it more bearable for those of you who hate it, and more enjoyable for those of you who already love it. I want to read with you. Cyber book club anyone? We’re going to read a book each quarter and discuss it when we’re done. If you have any reading recommendations let me know! And last, but certainly not least, I want to talk about my family, let you in on little tricks that I’ve learned, and tell you about the times I’ve messed up, so maybe you won’t have to.
Sound Fun? This is totally interactive, so I hope you’ll stick around and join our community (insert link here)! I’ll even try to keep my math references to a minimum. (Really, I will….try…) Together, I have no doubt that we can go on this journey called life together, never forgetting to make it as sweet as can be, and always striving to learn a lesson.
