Hi, I’m Amanda.  PTX stands for party time excellent as I’m a fan of all things fun.  Here’s a little about me.  I grew up on a farm in North Carolina.  I studied commercial photography in Atlanta, GA.  I worked in the hospitality industry for fifteen years, six of those as a professional event planner.  I still love planning parties and the thrill of being a hostess.  

I started blogging with the goal of documenting my life as a planner.  However, after getting engaged to my wonderful husband Joel, we relocated to Semarang, Indonesia for his job.  My blogging focus has since shifted to sharing tidbits of our life abroad and stories from our travels.  We love finding new cities with rich history, beautiful design and fantastic food.  Thanks for stopping by!

If you have questions, comments or collaboration ideas, I’d love to hear from you at
