This Is Me

Hi! I’m Amy. Welcome to my blog, Ordinarily Extraordinary. Thank you so much for stopping by. If you follow me on twitter you know me by @amykiane.

I decided to write this about me page after noticing new readers and well….I’m not sure I ever really wrote one.

I’m a stay at home mom and do photography part time. I also love serving at my church, painting, and scrapbooking. I’ve been married to my husband since 1997. We met at Jacksonville State University while in college. We have an amazing, creative and artistic child who prefers to be called Squirt here on the blog. I’m a native of Alabama having been raised in northeast Alabama and now live in the east central part of the state.

I have loved to read and write for as long as I can remember.

I also love music which is usually blaring loudly during the day when I’m home alone. There is never enough time for me to play the piano as much as I would like. I’m a plain jane. I’ve had gray hair since the age of twenty-two and I refuse to color it. I don’t wear make-up and I’m okay with that. I’m a rebel in that way.

Why did I choose Ordinarily Extraordinary? Because every life, no matter how ordinary it may seem, is extraordinary. Sometimes we have to look, but every day is filled with the extraordinary masquerading as ordinary. It’s up to us to slow down and see the extraordinary gifts of grace God gives us. Every person has their own extraordinary story to tell.

My blog first began about four years ago as a way to share my crafting, photography and our family life with friends and family. But as with everything in life it has evolved. I still share those, but I’m also finding my voice to share more of my faith journey. You can read more of that here and here. As my Squirt has grown he likes less and less for his photo to be taken and while I still share a lot about him it’s becoming more of his own story to one day tell and less of mine. So just as he has grown and I’ve grown and changed so has my blog. It’s my place to share my thoughts. I can write without needing to be perfect, write to process all God teaches me and hopefully encourage others along the way.

I hope you’ll visit again soon. And say hello so I can visit you.
