When asked “Who are you? Who is Amanda Pennington?” the first response that pops into my mind is always “The T’s Mom.” These are my T’s! From left to right, Tristan (son- 2 years old), Taurean (boyfriend of almost 11 years), Tatum (daughter-1 year old) and Taurean (son-9 years).

  1. I like the speedbumps metaphor. Nothing here stops you from moving through. The ride may get a little rough, but we keep moving on. in the same vein, I think the creativity comes through creating.
