My first blog post..ever

Welcome! So, as my title suggests, this is my first blog.. and my first post on my first blog… ever. So, I guess introductions are in order; I’m Amanda, a new stay at home mom of a curly-headed 8 month old (hence kirlygurls), a long time-do-it-yourselfer (I just finished an herbal remedy class, so of course I think I am a doctor and a pharmacist too), seamstress, and freelance writer. In addition to raising my husband (hehe) and daughter, we also have eight chickens, a mini rooster, a veggie and herb garden, and the random small animal that wonders up every now and then. I have been married three years as of April, live in a tiny little country town in Florida (the sticks, we live in the sticks) and absolutely love to travel! My husband is half African-American (hence our curly girl) and half German. We visited his family in Germany two years ago, and are gearing up to go back very soon! So I will probably be hitting the “traveling with a child under one” hacks pretty hard. Well, that’s me in a nutshell, and if I haven’t bored you to tears yet, stick with me, because it’s only going to get more interesting from here…
