It’s almost Mother’s Day – and this one will be one for the history books. No school made gifts, no big brunches or special meals at restaurants, and likely limited (if any) visits with extended family. Amanda quit Mother’s Day in 2018, Erin reminds us that this might be a good year to start new traditions, and we talk about honoring mothers we admire and love every day – not just once a year. Grab 20 minutes for yourself and come join us at the table!

A fifth-generation San Antonionian - who happened to spend her formative years in Austin - Amanda loves the SAT from the confetti in her hair to the bluebonnets under her feet. Never one to miss a reason to host a party or decorate for a theme, Amanda revels in the 'mas Fiesta' attitude of the city. She's mom to Vivi (2012) aka #HurricaneVivi, Mac (2020) and wife to Francois, whom she met at Texas A&M (FTAC '05). She has a Masters in Early Childhood Education and a Doctorate in Making it Up As She Goes - which means she's a sometimes-fun-mom. You can find her on Instagram . She loves confetti, croissants, and a cold Ranch Water. Favorite Restaurant: Piatti's Favorite Landmark: Johnson Street footbridge in King William Favorite San Antonio Tradition: Fiesta Medals
