Hello and welcome.
I’m Shannon, wife of Eric and mom to 4 kidlets who are quickly becoming more my size all the time. (which is quite frightening I find!)


-I am simple, down to earth, common, just like you.
-I am a follower of Jesus.
-I find myself fascinated with antiques, simple decor,
farmhouse tables, white-washed, and the color red.
or is it green? or maybe just gray. I hate deciding things.
-I detest ticking, tapping and annoying noises.
-Days and days in a row at home is my choice of place to be.
-I can not spell. cannot. Thank you spell check for saving me.
-I like to stay up late at night after the kids go to bed.
(I also eat ice cream at that time of the night while I write.)
-I do not like to cook but I often blog recipes for some unknown reason.
-I taught myself to like coffee because I wanted to be a social drinker.
-I like people. I like silence and alone time.
I do not know what type of person I am.

I am who I am because of Jesus,
it’s not about anything I have done,
it’s all about what He has done for me.

Some days life can be wild and exciting around here, who knows what will happen next. Other days it seems like I just plug along in the day to day grind, repeating everything I did yesterday. Then I remember no matter what’s happening, it’s not about me, it’s about Him, I do this for Jesus. I do this for my children. I do this for my husband. Tomorrow I’ll have to remind myself all over again, it’s not about me, it’s about them, it’s about Him.

~ I enjoy Photography as a side project. Some weeks nothing happens, some weeks it all happens at the same time and we have fun doing it.

People ask me, how do you do it all?
I don’t. I only do one thing at a time.


I am not a great writer, grammar is not my strong point, so give me grace while you read. Just imagine it’s a chat over the kitchen table with some coffee instead of each of us hiding behind our screens in pajamas.
Stay awhile and leave a comment, I love to hear from you.



On Oct 7, 2015, my brother passed away during the night from a heart attack.
He was only 32 years old and left a wife and three children behind.
We will always miss him.
