Hello, my name is Amie Mariana Eckhardt-Sider.

 A Canadian-Guatemalan twenty-something, spontaneous idealist, daydreamer + creative, and devote mama bear to my son, Orson Wilder. Life over the past several years has been a mish-mash of start ups + social enterprises, ethical fashion, non-profits, NGO's, and writing (professionally & for fun), all while wandering the world for business & pleasure. 

I love all & serve all (Jesus is my homeboy and Mother Teresa is my homegirl). I'm not a big fan of organized religion, routine, being neat, cleaning, grammar, gluten, or writing in capital letters...but I know each can serve a purpose from time to time. I have a much longer list of "likes" in life and can't wait for you to read about all of them! This blog serves as a peek into my everyday life as a #mompreneur living by the wanderlust of life. Most of my posts are written by me but my wonderful husband Matt may contribute along the way.

Here you'll find everything that encapsulates our life from our parenting wins & fails, to fun lifestyle posts, date nights and peeks at my crafting & documenting. I also get messy, raw, and real while sharing my personal adoption story, battle with PCOS, depression & anxiety, and other daily obstacles. I hope to you bring you a lot of laughs, maybe the occasional good cry, but most importantly - inspire you (along with myself) to simply live well.

Thanks for reading! I love sharing my local musings, and everyday snapshots  + highlights of my life from the back of my mind and the front of my camera lens. 

xo,  Amie Mariana
