about me

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm Shannon and I started this blog way back when I was a senior in college. I wanted to capture those fleeting moments of no responsibility before leaving the college bubble and entering the "real world." I studied communications and graphic design and this is where I put that liberal arts degree to work. Since then, this blog of mine has served as a scrapbook, memory keeper, and a very public diary. It's followed me from South Carolina, to D.C., though job changes, cross country moves, heartbreak, and a lot of bridesmaid dresses. And now nine years later I find myself a wife and a new mom living in the Pacific Northwest- for now. 
My husband and I tied the knot in January 2015 and set up house on the west coast. We love getting to explore our new corner of the country together. He's a surgical resident with the Army and I'm a stay at home mom to our one year old son, Tommy.  Throw our crazy puppy, Hunley, into the mix and I'm surrounded by three loud, messy, silly, absolutely lovable boys.
I'm a Jesus follower and forever learning what that means. I love to sing at the top of my lungs, I play guitar and attempt the mandolin. I love to ride shotgun with my feet on the dash. I believe the book is always always better than the movie. The beach is my happy place.  I have a minor addiction to diet coke, but it's under control, I swear. I can't answer the question, "where are you from" because I've lived and loved in a lot of places and have a very fluid understanding of the word. I love that I now get to adventure around the world with my husband and our son. I blog about everything and nothing, I'm just writing our story.
