Welcome to the Mamma Mia Blog & My Life!

Me & My Girls Enjoying South Beach

“Join me through every unedited moment as I discover my way in this amusing, hilarious, frustrating and fun journey some refer to as motherhood.” ~ Amanda

Born and raised just outside of Pittsburgh, I escaped to the Florida sun soon after college. I always thought Florida was just a “stop off “on my way to the place I’d live forever. Ten years later, I’m still here and I can’t ever imagine leaving my sandy beaches and swaying palm trees. Plus, this little family I created is pretty cool.

I’m known as Mom to Mia and Charli (7 and 3 years) and Amanda (not step-mom… that sounds like Cinderella) to a lovely young lady named Madi (14). I’m known as “love of my life” to an amazing man named Marcus, who likes to be shielded by the papparazzi unlike myself.

I currently serve as a contributing writer at PLAYGROUND magazine in Orlando and as the Sheknows.com City Guide Orlando writer. I’m the PR and social media manager at  Produce for Kids.

This is me living the #momlife

This Is Me… Living The #momlife

I have a degree in journalism (Note: I do still make grammatical/punctuation errors here and there), eight years in travel and leisure publicity, two years at Produce for Kids and my most valuable experience – mom of two girls. My insight floweth over.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking ballet classes, swimming, paddleboarding, reading, tweeting, traveling, cooking and shopping.

Browse around, leave a comment or enter a giveaway while you are here. If you want to send me a post idea or if you have questions about a travel deal – email me. I’m always happy to review products, entertain guest blogger opportunities, host giveaways, promote great travel destinations and give product recognition when recognition is due.

I look forward to hearing from you!
