Welcome to Anchored to Sunshine, my name’s Amanda and I’m based in Miami, Florida. I’m a Marketing Manager for Uber by day and a blogger by night.
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. But let’s be serious, my life mainly revolves around reading books, soaking up the sun, and drinking wine.
Some people have elaborate stories behind their blog name, I’m not one of those people. I spent days trying to think of something but I come up empty handed. So I stuck with what I know; I love anchors and I love sunshine. So there you have it, no matter where I am in the world, I will always be Anchored to Sunshine.
I was born in North Carolina and moved around a lot (from Texas to London, England and about 3 other places in between) before my parents finally found their way down to Sarasota, Florida when I was in 8th grade.
I graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, FL and then moved to a “big city” (DC) for a few years to try something new and get some working experience. After three winters there I called it a success and moved back to what I know, sunshine.
I now live and work in Brickell, Miami, and love it! My family is a few hours away, I work for an amazing company (with unlimited snacks and vacation), and I’m always finding a new adventures with the boyfriend. We have the travel bug and are always on the hunt for new trips to take around the world.
