Hi friends! I’m so glad you stopped by. I’m Mandie, a tea addict and tiny house wannabe, wife to an infantry soldier and momma to McKenzie and Piper. I’ve had quite the journey over the last 12 years and wanted to share how it has shaped me into the person I am today, hence “Making Mandie.” Join me as I talk about the highs and lows of motherhood, our homeschooling journey (and how it wasn’t by choice to start), our military life and how a genetic mutation changed our entire lives. Maybe a little DIY, our favorite recipes, style and home décor thrown in for good measure! So grab a cup of your favorite tea (coffee if you must 😉 ) and stay a while!
