When we started this blog the girls and I all decided that we wanted to focus on more than just our lives as mothers, our lives as women, workers, colleagues, friends, health-nuts, DIY-ers, fashion mavens, wives, and everything else that goes into making us “us.” It is not to say that motherhood is not… Continue reading The Importance of Reconnecting

There are trees down everywhere, Amanda has been without power for 19 hours, power lines are down, trees are on houses & blocking roadways, and the sound of chainsaws and generators are purring in the background. Everyone has congregated at Tara’s (she has power and snacks), the menfolk are… Continue reading Bloody Hell
Hey there everyone, I’m Amanda and apparently I have been designated as the “fashion guru” by the other Mimosa Moms.
