About Me


I’m Mandee and I’m a Wild Red.



I love exploring in all kinds of ways. Sometimes I explore the natural world. Sometimes it’s exploring sound with different music. It could be exploring flavors with a new food or recipe. And sometimes it’s exploring my own abilities and limitations by trying something completely new.

I do most of my exploring with my oh, so adorable and adventurous pup named River, and my devilishly handsome, smart, and fun husband, Randy.  They are my loves and the lights of my life. Many adventures, however, also include a kickass group of family and friends.  These are the people who know me best, who fill my life with love and fun, who I feel free to be me around – and that is the greatest thing of all.  I am forever grateful for all the incredible souls in my life.


I am caring, fun, and a bit crazy. I love to laugh and to make others laugh, but I make nobody laugh as well as I make myself laugh (seriously, I’m hilarious).  I love all thing cute, colorful, and cuddly.  And sometimes I love all things dark, destructive, and deadly.
I am also a fan of alliteration, can’t ya tell? I’m also really into puns and cursing. If you’re not cool with those things, you really shouldn’t read this blog.

When I get really excited about something, I jump all the way in. Sometimes this only last a day, but when I’m in it, I’m fully in it. I love trees, psychology, animals, Batman, tea, reading, sugar, dancing, donuts, ice cream… oh so many things (see Favorites list).  I love to love the things that I love.

I am on a quest to live a bigger, fuller life. I am trying to achieve this by breaking out of my comfort zone, trying new things, learning more about myself, and living true to my values. It is without a doubt the most rewarding experience I have ever known.

I invite you to join me on this adventure. Let’s kick the shit out of our comfort zones, get to know each other, the world, and ourselves! Let’s live our beautiful, wild lives!
