Hello Friends!

My name is Amanda Palmeri.

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1541685348013{padding-right: 10px !important;padding-left: 10px !important;}”]

Since a child, I’ve carried this immense creative energy which has driven me down many paths towards new pursuits and passions.

Growing up in Long Island, NY has been nothing shy of wonderful and in many ways, has inspired my creativity and lust for life around me. The people I’ve met and the beauty I’ve witnessed living here have molded me into the tangled-haired, coffee-drinking, adventure-seeking, beach-loving girl I am today.

When I set out to create my first blog, I had no idea where to start but I knew that this is exactly what I wanted to do. What I felt I was called to do. A passion I must pursue. I wanted to take my love for writing and channel it. To create a space for sharing my own stories, adventures and insights while hearing yours, too.

More than anything, I love to make people laugh. I love to strike up conversations about things that matter. I believe it’s what connects us as humans.I’ve been immersed in a full-time career since graduating college but have always felt deep in my heart that there’s so much more to life than a 9-5. So much to see and do. So much love to share, people to meet, creativity to channel.

The world is vast and constantly evolving and we should be apart of it, shouldn’t we? Experiences, tales and triumphs mold who we are and they’re only formed if we get out there and form them. We should certainly work to be able to live, but we should not live strictly just to work!

Because of this notion, I’ve placed so much emphasis on my weekends and always try to incorporate something into those 2 short days that will feed my soul, recharge my batteries and leave me waiting for the next one. (hence where I got the blog’s name, wink wink.)

I encourage others to do the same–feed your passions,  no matter what they are–evolve and grow–simply live well and live with purpose. 

I can only hope that The Weekend Wave is the place you’ll come when you need a laugh, a beauty tip, some inspiration or a distraction from your busy schedule.

I hope you’ll join me on my newest adventure as I dip my toes into the world of blogging.

Much like the ebb and flow of an ocean wave, so goes life..it really is a beautiful journey filled with highs and lows. Stay present and ride it out!

Every comment, like, subscribe and share would mean the world to me.
