anchored to sunshine blog

Hi, my name’s Amanda :) Originally from Florida, until one day I packed up my life and moved to DC on a whim!

Over my last year here i’ve picked up an amazing boyfriend (he technically picked me up but that’s a story for another time), a wonderful roommate, and a number of new friends who’ve helped me/ forced me/ and made me want to officially call DC home.

I work for a branding firm by day and blog by night (actually more like the early early hours of the morning, I’m a morning person). I created this blog to keep track of it all; great restaurants, books, fitness trends, and everything else that happens in a 20-something girl’s (woman’s?) world.

Note: This blog is a work in progress, and always will be.

Some people have elaborate stories behind their blog name, I’m not one of those people. I spent days trying to think of something trendy and cool to name this… but the problem is that I’m not actually super trendy and cool. So I stuck with what I know: I love anchors and I love sunshine (even through I now live in freezing-cold DC). So there you have it, no matter where I am in the world, I will always be Anchored to Sunshine.

Still want to know more about me?

Favorite things:
– lighthouses
– coffee (every morning person has to love coffee)
– anchors (duh)
– snacking
– old people

Least favorite things:
– being late (or when others are late to meet me)
– unmade beds
– driving
– unorganized things
– sleeping in

If you stillll want to know more then you are either a serial killer or think I’m cool…. I only accept the latter :) If you think I’m cool (or you are cool and will bump up my street cred.) follow me here:

    Thanks for visiting my Midwest Maize blog, Amanda. I’ve had fun exploring a bit of yours. It looks like we both like food and books — and both started our lives over at some point. Always fun to connect with other adventurous and literary folks.
