About

Hi I'm Amanda and this is my little blog! 

I currently split my time between a small town in West Virginia and a big city in Arizona, where I do freelance video work with my darling sir, Will. 

For the past three years we have been building a house on a mountain in an abandoned apple orchard in West Virginia. And when I say we are building I mean we are building with our own two hands, hence us working on it for the past three years. I try my best to chronicle the all the adventures that come a long with building a house, and all of our new animal friends.

At the beginning of this year we actually bought a little place in Arizona and are currently in the process of fixing it up. I guess you could say we have building/remodeling in our blood (or at least Will does, hehe). You can follow along on the house progress here.
This is what happens when I try to take pictures with both of them haha!
Twice a year we pack up our computers and our two kikis and drive from West Virginia to Arizona then back again. We are pretty darn lucky our cats both are great travelers and are used to spending 13+ hours in the car for days at a time. With all of this driving we have become masters of keeping each other entertained and knowing where all the best gas stations for snacks/coffee are along the way.

You can find me and our adventures around the web...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  20. Are we long lost sisters or something? We are both blonde Amandas with "Little Lady" in our blog title, and I grew up in VA! After reading this, I am certain that we should become penpals - I LOVE snail mail too :)

  34. I'm always so excited to find a blog by someone in WV! (And by always I mean the maybe 4 times it's happened so far...) I'm born and bred WV, and it's important to me to see positive representations of our state floating around. So thanks!
