Hello, and thank you for your interest in our website!

Hill Of Happiness was started in November 2022 by James and Amara McAllister.

As the two of us start to really build our lives together, we wanted a place where we can document our journey, meet new people, and share the lessons that we’ve learnt with others. If we can help or share new ideas with even one person, everything we do here will be worth it.

(And secretly, we hope this will be an awesome project to look back on 30 years from now.)

Amara McAllister

Meet Amara!

Amara is a graphic design extraordinaire, and one of the most lovable people that you’ll ever meet!

When she’s not busy organizing community events and excitedly jumping into new projects for our local town, she is testing out new foods and recipes to share with you here on Hill For Happiness. Amara is responsible for pretty much the entire food section, as well as most of the beautiful photography you’ll find within our articles. She is truly the artistic one behind the site’s aesthetic.

James McAllister

James is a professional blogger, and former CEO of Kinacle, a baby product company that touched millions of lives.

During his brief time as a parent, James learned that there was no more important job that he’d ever have in his life – and he’d trade anything to get that back again.

So, he became obsessed about optimizing his life not only so he could be there for every moment when our children were born, but that we could provide a beautiful life, full of wonderful memories for them.

What We Believe

We are so excited to have you here on our website.

We believe that there is nothing more important in life than family. Life is short, and if we don’t pay close attention to the things that matter to us, it will quickly slip us by.

We believe that you can have it all – a strong relationship with your spouse, a close bond with your children, AND fulfilling work that you enjoy.

Here on Hill Of Happiness, we strive to share ideas and answer questions to help you live as purposeful and joyful of a life as possible.

If there’s ever anything that you feel we could help with, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
