About

Wait. What is Blithesome Brunette?

This lifestyle blog was created to be a place where I can share my life as a Catholic twenty-something woman with the rest of the world. I strongly believe that I was given this love for writing and sharing experiences & advice, so that I could positively influence those around me. I want to connect other Millennials out there and let them know that we aren’t alone. There’s a meaning behind all of this craziness.

That’s why you’ll see a theme in what I write and what I post on social media: advice. My goal here is to create a place where ladies can come and find a little peace in the midst of their own insanity. I don’t have all the answers and I don’t pretend to, but I hope I can be the “big sister” of the Christian corner of the internet.

(P.S. I post once a week!)

Okay. So…who are you?

I’m Amanda and student teaching in a Spanish classroom, with an awesome teacher. I’ve blogged inconsistently for a few years, and last year, finally made the choice to cut that out. I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Spanish and a minor in English. At the end of this year, I’ll be certified to teach both as a secondary ed teacher.

However, all that teaching stuff aside, I’ve got some other things I truly love. Here are just a few: my beautiful friends, my boyfriend, my family, living in Michigan, hand-lettering, going to the gym and country music.

So…as for the name? I chose Blithesome Brunette because Blithesome means happy, carefree and I feel that’s something us Millennials/Twenty-Somethings embody more than other generations. We aren’t afraid to go out there and live our lives happily & to the fullest. As for the Brunette, that’s just my hair color. Honestly, I just wanted an alliteration (shout out to all those English-language-lovers out there!) and something that personalized my blog.
