I'm Amanda, a girl who lives by the beach in Southern California yet loves to escape to the mountains as often as possible. Often joined on my adventures by my husband Alex and our dog, a Pomeranian-Shiba Inu mix, Lily.

I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Colorado, so I have a strong love for the outdoors and cold weather. We currently live in Long Beach California, and while the outdoor adventures and cold weather are harder to come by these days, we try and get out to explore California's many different landscapes as often as possible. Among Wildflowers is a place where I share our adventures along with other inspirations, local guides, creative endeavors, and more. I hope you enjoy.

PS, yes, the name of this blog was inspired by a favorite music artist of mine, Tom Petty. Listen to the track here.
