Hello! I’m Amy! I am a life and style from Connecticut. I started blogging as a creative outlet for myself in 2013 after I graduated college. Over the years I have changed blog names, platforms, and even tried different writing styles. I finally feel like I “nailed it” with this self titled blog: Amy Marie. Why name a blog after myself? Simple. I like to talk about myself, things that make me happy and then come here and share it. I feel cozy on this little part of the internet that is all mine.
I originally started blogging in 2013 when I felt lost and found peace in writing everyday. I was working a job that I was not meant for and had to make myself “look busy” for most of the day. I put so much effort into my first blog and told no one about it. I remember I had just started dating Justin and had to lie to him going to Boston for a blogging event. I told him “I was going shopping for the day with friends.” Crazy, right? I have since shared my passion for blogging with family and friends. Guess what? I didn’t die and no one abandoned me or labeled me a weird. Now, Justin is a huge part of the blog, he assists with all my photos and it my very own spell checker on Instagram.
In recent years a lot has changed outside of my internet realm. I have graduated with my masters in Applied Behavior Analysis and happily work as a Behaviorist here in Connecticut. Justin and I got engaged and have welcomed two English Springer Spaniels, Harper and Bailey into our lives.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me. I can’t wait to share a little bit of everything with you. I love talking about style, things that inspire me, sharing my favorite DIYs, wedding planning, Etsy seller tips, and more!
