About the Blogger
Amanda LaFleur is a married mother of two with more than enough irons in the fire. Although to her, it is never enough. By day, Amanda wipes runny noses and stinky butts. By night, she is the volunteer executive director for a nonprofit focused on women’s mental and reproductive health. She is also a serial baker, mommy blogger, aspiring writer, and a freelance graphic designer. The secret to keeping her sanity (and losing it) is keeping as busy as she possibly can.
While having spent most of her life in beautiful Colorado, Amanda is a California girl at heart. Despite not having any beaches, Denver the perfect place to live with it’s 300 sunshine filled days a year. As a new mom, she is learning a whole new side of her hometown by discovering activities for young ones as well as new ideas for keeping date night exciting and fresh.

Blog for a Cause
Bake for Equality: In 2013, Amanda partnered with “sister-wifey” Brooke Walsh-Salzman (aka Wifey B) to create Bake for Equality – a charitable bakery raising funds for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in the fight for marriage equality for all. The two friends hosted bake sales featuring their own creations and delectable desserts from Denver’s best bakeries. Bake For Equality appeared at large scale events including Denver PrideFest and AIDS Walk Colorado. Over two years, the efforts raised just under $6000 for the cause. Bake for Equality closed it’s doors after the Supreme Court passed marriage equality for all in 2015. (Woohoo! #LoveWins)
Amanda is currently exploring new causes to throw the blog behind. Specifically charitable causes that directly improve the quality of life for children in need.
