Howdy. I’m Amie, Welcome to my frontier! I’m a forty-something single-mother of two girls, Michelle and Rhea. I am the oldest child who grew up in the mid-size city of General Santos in the southern tip of the Philippines but spent many summers of my childhood in the rugged, hilly farms in Alabel, Sarangani Province. It was there that many fond memories of my youth were formed. It was an oasis where I was free and be with my first love--my horse named Mula. I couldn't count the times we rode those mountains, sat by the stream and crossed river. I felt in love with him when I was 12, my father gave him to me as a gift. I lose him when I was 20, my first taste of heartbreak. I attended college in Mindanao State University and have degree in BSBA-Economics . . . I’ve been to few great places in my life, travelled to some beautiful parts of the world, done crazy things, laughed, cried tears, made mistakes, fallen in love & broke my heart. As of now I live in Manassas, Virginia, USA. I love being with my daughters, meeting friends for coffee, go shopping, driving in the country side, play golf, read, write,cook, and scuba diving in the summer. I hope you enjoy my website. Here, I write about my feelings, thoughts, experiences, and my passion for life.I also manage to take pictures of nature, and compose poetry in an effort to chronicle this bizarre, beautiful, and exciting journey I’m on. Thank you for allowing me to share it with you by visiting my site.
