Me & My Girls Enjoying South Beach

“Follow our family travel adventures as we discover our Florida backyard and the world together.” ~ 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.

I’m known as Mom to Mia and Charli (8 and 3 1/2 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 namedwho likes to be shielded from 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 spent eight years in travel and leisure publicity working with international hotel and destination clients. My first love will always be travel and I feel fortunate to be able to share our family travel adventures on this blog.

I am the director of marketing communications at Produce for Kids (where I also blog). I am truly passionate about helping parents find ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into their daily routine.

My most valuable experience… mom of two girls.

In my spare time, I take ballet classes, swim, paddleboard, read, tweet, travel, cook and shop.

Browse around and leave a comment. I love new friends! 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 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!

Keep up with our family adventures through my Instagram. You can also find me on Twitter or Google+.
