About Me…

So I first published an “About Me” in January 2013.  Wow. So much has changed from then until now.  Including apparently my weight because ain’t nobody got time to be as skinny as the girl pictured below anymore and my lame caption jokes. Seriously, that is so lame I’m not even deleting it because its too funny.

Just so you know that I am, in fact, a real life person.  I am not catfishing you. Promise

Honestly, I’m not sure what this blog really started out to be ( definitely not a blog on proper grammar…Professor Graves, if you’re reading this, I know the passive voice is just killing you).  I definitely didn’t think I’d still be trying to figure this thing out two years later.  However, I have wonderful friends and family that continue to read and share. So here we are… I’m 27 (almost 28, oh the horrors) years old.  Embarking on my fourth year as a practicing attorney.  Thank you, Jesus.  Live in the Bluegrass, native Floridian.  Go Gators and Go Cats. I can like both and if you tell me I can’t, well then, we cannot be friends. I used to fancy myself quite the runner, like I used to be skinny (see above), hence the “running” part of the title.  Definitely love Jesus.  If I could figure out how to use emojis on the computer I would enter the little praying hands guy right here. However, chalk the inability to use technology up to one of my many great skills. So there’s the “faith” part of the title.  And rounding out the “sugar” portion of the title, I am a type one diabetic.

And now this is just about the everyday struggle of a still twenty something (but only for two more years. I cannot accept.) who loves Jesus (she’s a good girl, loves her momma, loves Jesus and America too…no one else felt compelled to sing that if you’ve read this far? No? just me?), doesn’t take herself to seriously, and likes to laugh. A lot.

Really, I hope this blog meets people where you where you’re at, points you to Jesus, makes you feel a little better about your life, and makes you laugh.

Because you all deserve to know I'm not that skinny anymore

Also, thanks so much to my wonderful and talented friend Claire of Claire Marie Photography who so graciously provided all of the photos that actually look professional on my blog.  Her creative talents never cease to amaze me. http://clairemariephoto.com/

  1. WOW!! I love your blog! I’m just pumped that I can read a blog about someone I know!LOL And for the record, I hate that during all the years your dad was my preacher, me and you never really met. Kind of weird I know but I can be very backwards about meeting people who I think may not like me! But I enjoy following you on Instagram and I’m super excited to finally learn about you on your blog. I guess it is never too late to learn about someone you always wanted to meet or be friends with!! 😉

    happy blogging,
    Lacy Stephens

    • Lacy, thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and for the sweet comment. I agree, it is a bummer that we did not get to meet while we were attending the same church. It is never too late to be friends! Thanks again for the sweet words of encouragement.

  2. Amanda I already know you very well as our friendship has grown out of the good and bad experiences we faced together in law school in the last few years. Reading your faith section, your personal journey with God, inspires me as there are so many times that I have felt the same way. You have been a strong link to my own faith and have never once done so in a guilt-filled or pushy way. Thank you. Britney

    • B, thanks for reading. I am glad that I have been able to have a friend that I feel so open to talk about things like my faith. You know me, I’m always a work in progress. Thanks for being along for the ride!

  3. Sissy,
    Reading this blog made me more proud of you than I already was! I love it, and I’m so proud of the person you have become! I click on this thing every day now!
    So much love.

    • Sissssy, thanks so much! I love you and I am so happy you’ve been in my life for so long. I hope you enjoy! Also, I was asleep by 11:30. The time was just messed up. Be for real, sissy is a grandma.
