Bennett 2013-2

Hi, I’m so glad you’re here.  Let me first introduce myself and my family.  I’m Amy J. Bennett.   I’m a 35 year old working mom of two daughters.

I married my high school sweetheart Scott 15 years.  I graduated from college with a Computer Science degree 2 years later and have been working with a large bank in Charlotte, NC as a developer since.  I’m lucky enough that I get to work from home several days a week.  Scott got his dream job as a State Trooper 10 years ago so we team up and take care of our two daughters in a suburb of Charlotte just inside South Carolina called Fort Mill.


Emma is our first daughter.  She’s our creative care-taker.


Lexi is our second daughter–the one that keeps us on our toes laughing.


And I guess you may as well meet Tucker. He’s our 2 year old lab that creates enough drama he could probably have his own blog.



Our newest addition is my baby Bella.  I spoil her. A lot.


Now that you’ve met my family, let me introduce you to this blog.

I started blogging in 2002 when I was pregnant with our first daughter Emma.  In fact, you might have passed through my old blog Permission to Peruse in the past.  In the Spring of 2013, I moved to this new home.

In short, this is a lifestyle blog written by a Christian mom in the Southern suburbs.  One of my favorite things to do is sit with friends over coffee at Starbucks right around the corner. Often, these posts are just what we’d talk about if we did the same.  So why do I share it in print and in public?  Well, I have a feeling we go through a lot of the same things.  I need to hear a “me too” more often than I’d like to admit and I’m sure you do too.  I’m hoping as I reflect on life, we both can grow together.

I’ve been featured on MoneySavingMom.comOrgJunkie.com and published in LifeWay’s HomeLife magazine.

I’m ridiculously excited you’re here.  Let’s connect more!  I love social media and you can find me active on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
