About Amy, the Fearless Homemaker

Amy | www.FearlesHomemaker.com | 2015Welcome to Fearless Homemaker!  I’m Amy,  + I started this blog in 2010 to chronicle my journey teaching myself about homemaking: cooking, baking, crafting, + hosting parties. I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my wonderful architect husband (who I married in a surprise wedding in 2011), our happy little toddler daughter, + our lovable black + white spotted rescue dog.

I was raised in Boston + moved to Tennessee about 15 years ago to attend Vanderbilt University, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish + Art History.  I was so charmed by the South + this amazing city that once I graduated, I decided to make Nashville my permanent home. Since then, I have also received my Master’s Degree in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. I have an amazing job that I love, as a coordinator for Cultural Care Au Pair, the USA’s largest au pair/nanny exchange program. It allows me to combine my love of cultural exchange + travel with my education in language + psychology, + work with incredibly interesting people + families from all over the world.

When I’m not being a homemaker, or working on au pair-related things, you can find me drinking tea, reading, practicing yoga, traveling, or grabbing a fabulous meal out with friends.

I hope you enjoy following my homemaking adventures! For more updates + pictures, you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, + Pinterest. And feel free to email me at amy@fearlesshomemaker.com with questions or comments.

Amy, what a crazy small world — I’m from Dedham also! My parents actually still live there. That Friendly’s Wattamelon roll was amazing, right? We used to go to the one nearby (the Dedham Plaza, I think?) all the time when I was growing up! Nice to meet another Dedhamite!

I’m Marcella and I’m on the marketing team for Green BEAN Delivery. In case you aren’t familiar, Green BEAN Delivery is an online, organic grocery delivery service that specializes in local farmers in artisans. Around a year ago we opened up a hub in Nashville and have since loved getting to know the community and the wonderful artisans that are in it!

I’d love to talk with you more about forming a partnership. Do you have a media kit, or pricing that you could send me in regards to blog posts and social media posts? Ideally I’d love to have you customize a bin with whatever products you would like and post about the service or post a recipe that you used with the products you received.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you!

I love this soup! Of course I add LOTS more celery and carrots and chicken to make it a bit more hearty but it’s super yummy! Tanks Amy!
