About TBL and Amanda

Hi! I'm Amanda and I'm the author behind TBL. I have a passion for natural living, gardening, preserving, DIYs, photography, needle and thread crafts, cooking, and anything vintage. In my free time, I can be found sitting in my garden and watching birds at our feeders.


The Butterbean Legacy is more than just a blog to me. It's my way of life. As a wife and a mom to five amazing kids, I'm always looking for ways to save a little time or money while still living as healthy as possible. When I find something great I just have to share it with the world.

So, why The Butterbean Legacy? Our youngest daughter is a twin. Her sister passed away around one year old due to complications of prematurity. Her nickname was Butterbean. My journey to healing has led me here and TBL is dedicated to her. TBL works with Sadie's Purpose to help families of NICU babies in honor of Sadie.

It is my hope that what you find here will help you save a little time or money, have some fun, find the courage to try something new, and generally improve your family's lives in some way, no matter how big or small. Please feel free to use the "contact" button to reach out; I'd love to get to know you. I'm so excited you're in theTBL family!
