About Me

Once upon a time, I earned a journalism degree and had a short career working for a newspaper. Then I married and decided my career would be raising our children. That’s where the story about me really begins.About Me - Shannon - Nice to meet you!

I’m a mom of four children, three boys and one girl. The boys are balls of energy with faces. My daughter is delightful but makes me fear her teenage years.  My husband is quite possibly the most calm, even-headed man EVER. He balances my high-strung, dramatic nature.

I miss writing. This blog is my selfish way of working through all the thoughts that bombard me daily.

Things you should know about me

  1. I have a hard time just sitting. I multitask almost continually. Translation: I’m restless. You won’t find me hanging out by the side of the pool for hours on a sunny summer afternoon.
  2. I love to plan and organize.
  3. I’m a Christian raising our children in a Christ-centered home.
  4. I use recipes only as guidelines. If you really like something I cooked, there’s a good chance you’ll never get to eat it again because I have no idea what I put in it.
  5. I actually like throwing my family into a car for long road trips. I know it’s not for everyone, but I would pack us all in an RV and travel this nation if I could.
  6. I’m an avid reader with a wide interest. Currently, I’m reading a slew of young adult books. I call it research into my tween’s life.
  7. I don’t believe I’ve ever met a dessert I didn’t like.
  8. I’ve only lived in Wyoming. This fact shapes a lot of my views.

If you’re still interested, I also have a post explaining more than you ever want to know about me. Happy reading!

If you would like to contact me for any reason, I’d love to hear from you.
