Welcome to my site! 

I’m Amber. A former childcare/summer camp director. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 2 under age 5. I’m not an expert by any mean but I do have tons of experience that I would love to share.

My passion is living a happy life with my family. I love finding new ways to interact, inspire, decorate, & save money.

Motherhood is not all cute crafts & clothes as you see all the time on the internet. And just like you I want to be able to do realistic activities & not ones that are either extremely time consuming or that result in Pinterest fails.

As a parent, I understand that we don’t always have time to do the things we want. Through Simple & Practical Life you will be able to find activities, encouragement, and advice on doing more together and less behind the scenes.

Here’s some quirky facts about me:

  • I’m a dinosaur junkie
  • I love coffee
  • If it says DIY, I’ll give it a try
  • Glitter & I are NOT friends, but I’m working on it

I’d love to hear all about you as well!

Don’t forget to join the Simple & Practical Life family for weekly tips & inspirations!
