My name is Shannon and I live in a small city in Southwest Michigan. Both my husband and myself have lived here our entire lives and we really love it. I am a Christian, a wife, an avid reader & book blogger, as well as a photographer and an artist of many different things. I love reading and have a separate blog that is dedicated to only book reviews & book related posts. You can find that blog here. I do post book reviews on this site as well, usually Christian or non-fiction books. Besides reading, blogging and photography, I also enjoy exercising, spending time outside, especially on the lake in the summer and spending time with my wonderful husband, family and friends. If you are interested in photography, you can find my portfolio here, although I do not update it as often as I should!

I am what most consider a housewife, although I prefer the term homemaker. I am self-employed but I work mostly from home and I work part time. In addition to photography, which ranges from real estate to portraits, I also refurbish a variety of furniture and home decor, which I sell both on Etsy and locally at antique stores. I attended Western Michigan University and graduated with a BA in Anthropology, with a minor in Global and International Studies. I also studied Fine Arts for 2 years at the local community college before transferring to WMU.  I have a huge range of topics that I am interested in and plan to blog about many different things, but am hoping to make this blog focused mainly on natural living, Christian living, family, health, homemaking, pregnancy, etc. And of course book reviews on books that fit into those topics. I am always interested in connecting with individuals who share my interests, so please feel free to leave comments, send messages or find me on my other social media accounts!

I have added links below to my other social media accounts, several are focused mainly on books and reading but I am always looking for new friends with similar interests!
