Somehow you have found my blog! And you’ve clicked on this link, which means you want to know a little bit more about me.
My name is Mandy. I live in the Carolinas with my sweet family. I am an Ultrasound tech by training, but have recently focused my energy towards my passions: birth and photography. You can check out my photography page at www.amandaallenderphotography.com
I like movies, dancing to music, spending time outdoors, swimming, yoga, reading books, writing, photography, and birth.
I dislike cleaning, remembering to pay bills, arguing, dealing with diapers (cloth or disposables), sleep battles, menu planning, and clutter.
I have four beautiful children: Ronan, Ruby, Ryder and Rory.
I am married to a wonderful man named Brock.
I can drive a stick shift.
Sometimes, I have to remind myself that it’s okay to laugh.
I have had 2 homebirths, a birth center birth, and a hospital birth.
A messy house makes me crazy. My house is always messy.
I shaved my head because of long-standing scalp issues. And I loved it.
I never have enough pictures with me in them.
I am training to be a homebirth midwife.
I am terrible at trying new recipes.
Writing my thoughts out seems to order my brain.
Our youngest child, Rory Kai, died on February 5th, 2017.
