blog swap

Team, allow me to introduce you to my newest bloggy friend, Amanda. 
She's a rockstar and I totally dig her blog. 
And good news, we're blog-swapping today!
So, check her out, then go to her blog and say hi to me and proceed to fully blog stalk Amanda.
K, thanks. 

Hey everybody! I’m so glad to meet you all here at Elise’s Pieces. I’m Amanda. I’m the person behind Ninth Street Notions, a blog and etsy shop.

 I live in Eastern Oregon, in a high desert valley. Here’s my husband and me:

We live together with our little dog, Lexy:

I spend my days writing (I do freelance travel writing), sewing, and cooking. The sewing’s new for me. I just started this winter, and while my results are not always (read: never) perfect, I’m having fun. Currently I’m sewing my first dress.

Cooking, on the other hand, is a long-time favorite of mine. I bake my own bread, using homemade sourdough starter. I also love to try out new recipes and invent new flavor combinations. Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. Someday I'd like to own a bed and breakfast. I have it all planned out. It's going to be amazing. You'll have to stay there sometime. I'll make you waffles.

A few more fun facts about me:

·         I’ve played the piano for 17 years. I also play flute, and I’ve taught both.
·         I have a BA in English. My concentration was discourse studies.
·         My favorite season is autumn. I just LOVE crunching leaves.
·         I used to live in Alaska. I moved back down to Oregon about six months ago.
So I hope to see you all around again. It's the best part about blogging.
