Hi! I'm Amanda, welcome to Poppyseeder.

I grew up in Williamsburg, Virginia and Vero Beach, Florida and bounced back and forth between the two places for a while, but I've now settled in Belfast, Maine. I live here with my husband, Spencer, and our two furchildren, Kai and Theo. Spencer and I have been married since 2016 and in early 2018 we bought our first house.

I've been blogging for well over a decade, though not always on this platform. Whenever I try to take a break, it pulls me back in. When I'm not blogging I'm usually quad skating, hiking, or finding yet another thing in my house to paint.

Poppyseeder has a little of everything-- beauty, style, music, home, food, travel, and life in Maine (which is my favorite topic). Stay for a while and explore!


Yes, Poppyseeder. One word.

Why did you move to Maine?
Because I wanted to!

What kinds of pets do you have?
I have a cat named Kai and a dog named Theo.

I want to move to Maine, where should I live? / I want to visit Maine, where should I go?
I've written a big 'ol post about moving to Maine which can be found here and you can check out my Maine posts for trip ideas. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
