Hello there, I am Shannon!
I graduated from CSUF with my bachelor of fine arts degree in 2006.

This blog started in 2008 when I decided to make a slight change in my life.

I moved from California, where I was born & raised, to New Zealand.

I arrived in NZ as a young single person ready for an adventure.

Within the first month of being in NZ I met my love, Grant!

In 2011 we moved back to CA and got married.

My blog has evolved over the years.  Starting as a travel blog to keep my family informed about what I did in NZ to a blog about my art, interests, and life in general.

In 2013 we bought our own home!
In May 2013 we found out we are expecting our first baby...a BOY!
Due February 15th 2014
On February 21, 2014 a little guy named Emmett was born.  He came into our lives screaming and pooping and changed everything forever.  We love him so much there aren't words to describe it!
He brings constant joy to our lives, and lots of cuddles.


September 2016 we welcomed Calvin into our lives!
We now have a house full of boys and chaos.

Looking forward to:
Continuing to work on art
 Continuing to update our house, little by little.
Teaching little ones all about life and how to enjoy it.
Adventures in minimalism
Eating a plant based diet
Traveling all we can!
