General musings on the ups and downs and ins and outs in the life of a 30 something, unmarried, life loving, some times interesting and sometimes not, mostly happy girl just trying to figure it all out!

Art by Katie

OK, this is shameless promotion of my little sister. But she happens to be extremely talented, so it's OK. She used to draw and paint some as a kid and after moving to Guam she took it up again. She's gotten some pointers and tips and her skills are really honing.

She just started a facebook page (after I beat her over the head) to promote herself and her work. A few samples:
Cairn Terrier (aka- Toto dog if you're me)


Commissioned Work:

Pretty awesome, right?

You may remember that she did my Christmas cards for me last year (check them out here). The drawing of Van she did for that is my blog header so you can just scroll up too. If you have ever met Van, it looks EXACTLY like her. I have it framed at the apartment and sometimes I want to pet the drawing. :)

OK, so, if you are so inclined please "like" her on facebook and tell people about her. 
She's teaching horseback riding and training, but this will hopefully be a way she can support herself when she and Justin have to move to goodness-knows-where next!


  1. oh. my. gosh. she is insanely good. i mean i already knew that but seeing these just reaffirms! WOW!

  2. wowwow she is really good! I can't imagine being able to do something like that. good for her and good luck to her!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
