About Me

Hi, friends! I’m Amy, the author of Domestically Dreaming. I am so very thrilled you stopped by to share in this page with me!  I’m constantly dreaming up new ideas, projects, businesses, and I’ve been dreaming up this site for a while.  I’m trying to embrace the fact that life is ever-changing and I’m always trying to make whatever situation I am in beautiful. My faith in Jesus is the biggest part of my life, this and my need for a creative outlet to share the inspiration I gain from HIM is the reason I began blogging.IMG_5633

I was a 3rd grade teacher, turned middle school reading teacher in my past life.  I still have a passion for reading and literature which I think will come up a lot in my writing, since it’s a big part of my life.

Now I’m a stay at home Mama to my 2 precious baby girls.  They are both crazy brave and full of some wild energy and I adore them both.  I love spending my days with them but I have a busy personality so I’m excited for this venture to be a new outlet for some of my inspiration and ideas.

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for 10+ years, but we were married young, so I’m not too old!!! 😉

My family has been in the home building and remodeling business for 4 generations and although I’m a girlie girl I still like to get my hands dirty when it comes to houses.  I plan to share a lot of the beautiful work my family does on this blog, since it’s just a part of how I grew up.

I am in love with pretty much anything creative, crafty, and aspire to make so much of what I see before I pull the trigger on a purchase! I love a good bargain but I love it even more if I can make it myself.  I think this is also applicable in the kitchen, because I think everything tastes better when it’s made with your own hands.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my writing.  I hoping it provides a taste of everything I love and how I work to make beautiful things come together.  Thank you so much for visiting!
