a swing and a song

Welcome to My Blog!

Hello and welcome to A Swing and a Song! I’m Amalie, the author and you’ll find that I write just

Mrs. Monologues

about everything and anything–sometime funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes painful, but always with candor and I hope, authenticity.

I’m a single woman with swagger, living in Pittsburgh in a renovated (with much love and sweat-equity!) house. I have a career in sales but break loose the creativity with my blog, which I launched in January of 2012. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments!

About Me


I kicked chronic illness in the teeth and lived to tell the tale. Now I blog about life and remember not to take it all so seriously. My intent is to be genuine and heartfelt about a variety of subjects. Welcome and thank you for joining me.


I hope you’ll share your comments.
