Hi everyone! I’m Amanda and welcome! Eats, Love and Happiness is where I blog about my life in the DC suburbs with my boys. Right now we’re in the works of planning a wedding and going back to school!
I hope you love it here as much as I love the little one below. (No she’s not really mine, but sometimes I pretend she is. Meet Reid, my cousin/mini-me.)
If you want the quick version of my bio, I’m a twenty-something bride-to-be, chef in training and puppy mom who loves food, my friends and my family more than anything. I also love to try to maintain a healthy, happy and balanced life.
I grew up in Lake Placid, New York, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics – not to be confused with the Lake Placid that’s home to a massive alligator. After graduating from high school I attended the University of New Hampshire. Go Wildcats!
Since I graduated in 2006, I lived in Orlando for a year until my fiancee’s job brought us to Washington D.C. We chose this unique and incredible city because it was a driving distance to home and a bearable city for us “mountain folks” to live in. We lived in the city for two years before buying our first home in April 2010 in Montgomery County, Maryland.
After buying our house we continued to rock 2010 and adopted this little guy. Meet Reddick!
Almost as if the year couldn’t get any better, MJW popped the question on Christmas Eve! We have been together for almost seven years and can’t wait to start planning and have the wedding of our dreams.
