Hi, I’m so excited your here!

My name is Mandy. Welcome to my blog A Minute with Mandy!

Writing is my outlet. It grounds me. So, I decided to start a blog where I can share my life with you!

I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My son Bradley was born April 1st, 2018. He is my entire world.

Simple is my specialty. I don’t have a lot of extra time and the time I do have I want to spend with my family.

I love cooking, cleaning, photography, writing, sewing and running.

Maintaining an organized and clutter-free home is a priority.

I have a mild obsession with buying photography props, notebooks, coffee mugs, and pens.

If there was an award for over analyzing – I would win every year.

I’m a hopeless romantic.

My favorite color is turquoise.

My perfect day includes waking up to a clean house and having a Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Latte and fresh fruit waiting for me…followed by a long hot shower then bumming around town in comfy jeans and a perfectly fitting white tee and my denim jacket (taking pictures and visiting antique shops). For dinner, I would request a cheeseburger (red onions, pickle, and ketchup) with a side salad (Balsamic, no tomatoes) Then end the day relaxing on my patio with twinkle lights, a glass of Entwine Cabernet and my family (bonus points for a campfire and S’mores).

If you want to know more about me you can either invite me out for a glass of red wine or check out some of my blog posts!
