Welcome to VeraVise Outdoor Living
Hi! I’m Amanda and I am so happy you dropped in to get to know me better.
I’m a small town girl with itchy feet for adventure and exploration which I satisfy by exploring the beautiful Appalachian mountains in which I reside. I also enjoy extended USA road trips with my family.
We currently reside in upper Northeast Tennessee. I’ve lived, played, and worked in Tennessee my entire life most of which was spent right here in the Appalachian mountains.
I spent a few short years in Memphis, TN while attending Pharmacy school and loved it, but our love for the outdoors brought us home to the Appalachian and Smoky Mountains.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Mark. He is an amazing husband, father, and local optometrist to our small community in Blountville, TN. (Shameless plug, but yes, it’s true…just read all his great reviews. He’s the real deal!)
He is also my photographer, my ATV driver, and my marathon road trip partner. We are best friends and have a great time exploring God’s creation.
I homeschool with the Charlotte Masonish method which means we read a lot of living books and utilize the outdoors and a lot of our travel time to enhance what we learn. You can read more about that on our Homeschool site.
Because my children are almost always with me and share my daily life, they know way too much about marketing and blogging, but they help me keep this house humming so that I can write and plan our adventures. They are a blessing and I adore them.
I define outdoor living as a lifestyle that seeks to enjoy the great outdoors in whatever fashion best suits you or your current circumstances. If you are traveling, it might mean incorporating outdoor exploration of national and state parks or finding a new ATV trail to explore.
It almost always means hiking and nature walks.
Outdoor living can be so many different things, but the one thing they have in common is an appreciation for God’s creation and getting outdoors as often as you can even if it’s just for a back road ride to take in the scenery.
