My name is Grandma Kc. I live in sunny Southern California with my hubby, Grandpa Richard and our two three cats, Twiggy, Twursula and now Shebee. We have an amazing granddaughter named Amara who turned 8 years on April 21, 2012. This blog is all about her!
When Amara was only a few months old her Grandpa made some joke about AmaraLand — we had seen some special about the Hollywood Land Sign. It was about this same time that I decided to take a Dreamweaver class so I purchased the domain name Amaraland.com. I built that first site in her honor and I have updated it many times since then.
But AmaraLand also came to have another meaning. When Amara was about 6 months old her Grandpa and I decided that 5 miles away was just to far away. So we found a great house exactly one mile from “The Kids”.
The house came complete with a great backyard and a swing set. We christened it AmaraLand. Amara shares it with the cats and we have spent many hours in AmaraLand playing and having fun.
In January of 2010 I decided AmaraLand.com needed to become a blog — a place where I could save all the memories and share them with my family and friends. I am still going back and adding posts that I call "Previously on Amara". These are old memories that I want to go back and document so that I never forget them. Fortunately I am very bad about cleaning out my email box, it is a trove of memories just waiting to be shared. I hope you come back and visit often.
