I’m Maddie, a twenty-something living in Northern California with my husband, toddler, and our dog.
I founded Sycamore & Sprout in May 2014 as a way to showcase all the things that are most important to me as a woman, wife, and mom.
After getting a degree in English, I began my professional writing career in the tech industry in San Francisco, then became a journalist and newspaper editor. Sycamore & Sprout allows me to get creative writing about the things I’m most passionate about and to connect with other families like mine. It originally started as a gluten free cooking blog, but soon evolved to encompass all the areas of my life. I know that breaks the number one rule of blogging, which says to pick a niche a stick to it, but I wanted my blog to be a true reflection of myself, and that meant it had to cover much more than just one subject.
I hope you enjoy what you find here.
