My sweet, sweet summer has come and gone. It’s back to work tomorrow and I’d be lying if I said I was 100% pumped. I mean, I am pumped, my job is really fun, but I’ve been makeup free and in elastic waist pants for several weeks now (you’re welcome, Creighton) and I’m just not sure about appearing in public like a human who has her ish kinda together. My kid is at SUCH a fun (challenging) age right now too, and I feel like this summer especially, I’ve really enjoyed and kind of savored my time with her, and I’m not quite ready to give that up! Some summer highlights for us:
C and I lived and taught in Suzhou, China from 2012-2014. I kept a blog on tumblr during that time, where I posted pictures and a few tales from our adventures. We’re revisiting some of these stories in a series I’m calling…(dramatic pause)…The China Diaries.
This blog isn’t really “about Amanda,” although I am Amanda, and it’s my blog, sure. This blog is about parenting, pop culture, travel, relationships, stuff I like, and life in general. I’m not an expert. I’m just an enthusiast.
