Hi! I'm Shannon. I'm a former interior designer turned stay-at-home mom to three kids. Caden and Brooklyn made me a mom in February 2014, and Nolan arrived exactly two years and two days later, in February 2016. My husband Tyson and I do what we can to survive and wrangle three small children, while also carving out time for each other and ourselves.
One of the ways I carve out time for myself is by writing. Sometimes my head gets so full, especially with three children around all day that aren't exactly capable of having adult conversations. This is my spot to scribble about motherhood and life, things I'm reading and gatherings we've hosted, and anything else that might pop into my head. Lately I've been writing about life as a stay-at-home mom, our daily goings-ons, and finding encouragement in the daily grind of life with small kids. I hope these pages inspire, encourage, and even give you a laugh, even if only because you glimpse a photo of our living room so strewn with toys, Cheerios, and children that it looks just like yours right now (please tell me that your space is also strewn with plastic and breakfast foods).
I'm a born-and-raised Minnesota girl. While we love it here, we also spent a good chunk of time living in Madison, and I left a little piece of my heart there.
Besides writing, I enjoy reading, cooking and baking, coffee (preferably iced with a healthy dose of heavy cream of and a bit of sugar), fashion, watching documentaries, getting pedicures, a good beer, hockey, walking around our neighborhood, singing along to Hamilton, hot yoga, and the season of fall. I still enjoy exercising my interior design muscles when I get the chance, and I have opinions, so don't say I didn't warn you if you decide to ask me for advice on anything from color selection to room orientation.
Thanks for reading!
