Welcome! I’m Amanda, and this is my small space on the world wide web.
You will find a variety of topics here including but not limited to life (obvi!), autism, saving money as a special needs family, raising a family, recipes, boozie drinks, and some arts & crafts.
I am a wife, mom, entrepreneur, chaser of dreams, and advocate of inclusion.
