The Brilliant Balance is a source of every day inspiration for travel, food and lifestyle including style, wellness, home + family, DIY and everything in between. This journey began back in 2013 while I was still a Kindergarten teacher. My love of creativity was something that stretched far beyond the walls of a classroom and as my desire for pursuing a full and multi-faceted lifestyle grew, so did the space to foster my inspirations. My motivation to grow a platform where I could cultivate a community, connect with people and inspire others through ideas, photography and writing has been a worthwhile adventure and a great responsibility. I’ve seen so much growth and welcomed so many opportunities in these 5 years, I’m incredibly thankful and excited for the future of The Brilliant Balance.
About Amanda & The Fam Behind TBB
Sam and I currently reside in Austin, TX with our two rescue-pups, Zoey and Nugget. We are expecting our first child, a baby boy, in early October and are excitedly preparing for his arrival! We live in a beautiful wooden A-frame house on a canyon in West Austin between Lake Travis and Lake Austin, and we LOVE working on home projects, home improvement, landscaping, gardening and interior decorating among other things! We travel as often as we can and when we can’t, we enjoy living in the city that was voted best place to live in the USA for the second year in a row by U.S. News and World Report. We LOVE sharing our lives with others and hope to be a source of light, warmth, encouragement and inspiration for years to come!
