My name is Amy Elizabeth Pittman; my mom calls me Amelia.
I’m from the most endearing water-tower town in Jacksonville, Florida: Baldwin.
I’m a self-proclaimed Strategic Corporate Communications Rockstar at Florida State College at Jacksonville. I absolutely love writing, taking pictures with my iPhone, and adventuring all around Northeast Florida. Outside of school, I spend time working with children, singing and playing the harmonica in my old high school folk band, serving the homeless, and hanging out with my sister. When I grow up I want to be a hot wife, a fun-loving mom, and a children’s book author and illustrator.
A great childhood memory I have is when my favorite English teacher, Mrs. Marsha Reeves, introduced me to the novel So B. It by Sarah Weeks. Every other day for a few months she narrated the story perfectly to our 7th grade English class. It is a completely magical and irresistibly beautiful story and every time I re-read it I can hear Mrs. Reeves saying ‘Jujy Fruits’ with a thick nasal-y Southern accent and it makes me smile with teary eyes.
I am most happy when the people who I love are happy.
Also: when I have the opportunity to take a Sunday afternoon nap.
I am most upset when people are dishonest/unkind/think they know everything there is to know about everything.
Also: when my lips are chapped and my toes are cold.
My idea of a fun day is a warm outdoor adventure with people who I love and some delicious watermelon.
I am probably too familiar with all things regarding the movie ‘You’ve Got Mail’ and overalls. 🙂
