All About Me

Hello! Welcome to my Wholemade Life.

I’m Amanda and I’m a stay at home mom to my energetic, inquisitive, and independent two year old and wife to my wonderfully supportive and loving husband Patrick.

I have been thinking for several years about starting a blog about our family and the everyday shenanigans but I just never jumped in. There are several things that our family holds as important but ONE in particular is we try to go about living out life as natural and organic as possible which having fun along the way.

When I became pregnant in 2014 (and all be it I’m a first time mom) I started reading about all the things you are and aren’t supposed to do and eat while pregnant. Eat this not that, don’t smell these harsh chemicals that are in everything you clean your house with, and basically just don’t breathe. I had a moment of panic, I was bringing a sweet child into this unsafe world. Then I realized that it was just time for a lifestyle change. It isn’t a change that’s for everyone but it was one that we were willing to make and have been working on for over the last┬áthree years. I now welcome you to this process (as that is what you have to treat it as, it cant happen overnight) and will share what we have learned a lot the way too!

Here you will find:

  • Opinions/Reviews on new products we try
  • New/Favorite recipes of our family (my son loves to “help me”)
  • Crafts we do together
  • Adventures
  • Resources on becoming an Organic/Natural minded family

However, mostly what you will find is that we have a lot of FUN! That is what being a family is about for us, and everyday we try to have fun! Thanks for joining me on this wild ride, and I look forward to sharing my Wholemade Life with you.
