My name is Amanda. I am a 36 year old, former stay at home mom of 2. I now work part-time at our local library while the kids are at school. My life has taken me in a direction that I never could have imagined. If someone had asked me ten years ago where I would see myself when I was 30, I would have most likely said…happily married, living in the city, with a family, and an amazing career. I AM happily married with a family, but I chose a different life for myself. I have started this blog to document my journey living in the country and managing life in a small town…and to share all of the little things I have learned along the way.
