Hello! Welcome to Amy Marie Blog, a Connecticut-based life + style blog. My name is Amy and I am so happy you are here! I started blogging as a creative outlet for myself 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. 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 as “weird”. Now, Justin is a huge part of the blog, he assists with all my photos and is 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 Behavior Specialist here in Connecticut. Justin and I got married 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. What can you expect from this lil blog… well a lot of trips to the thrift store, my passion for clean beauty products, recipes, DIY projects, wedding planning, and a lot more!
