Hi there! Thank you for clicking on over to this page to learn a little more about me. I am a born and raised Oklahoma girl with a heart for all things related to Jesus, family, travel, nature, food, and coffee. I hope to share many of those experiences with you on the blog.
Outside of the blog, I am a full-time social worker. I was inspired to pursue this career path because of the influences others have had on my life and I hope to be that to someone else, and to help those in crisis. It is my hope that this blog can be a space of peace, inspiration, encouragement, and support in all aspects of life. Because, let’s be honest–life isn’t all that fun sometimes and we need to cheer for each other.
I enjoy cooking new recipes, reading all sorts of books, exploring new places, taking photos of beautiful things, and spending time with my family and friends. I have Celiac Disease and always appreciate discovering new recipes, stores, coffee shops, and restaurants that allow me to eat all kind of gluten-free food.
I began blogging in 2015 as a way of writing about things I am passionate about. Blogging has since become a creative outlet to me and I enjoy the process of planning, creating content, and taking photos.
The blog name “Love From Amy” was chosen almost instantly. The blog was originally named “Sentimental Septemberist” but after a while, that name did not portray anything I was about and I was not motivated to continue creating content. I did not have a passion to pursue with that title. But I got to thinking about another title, I realized that my name, Amy, means “dearly loved, beloved.” I am all about loving people and hopefully making sure that they are shown love, and from there the name was born. The things that I share with you are things from my heart that I hope you can enjoy, appreciate, and become inspired! I have passion now because this blog reflects my life passion.
So, welcome! I can’t wait to go through this journey of life with you.
