Hi! I'm Shannon. I have 2 cats and a dog. I live in Pittsburgh. I love camping and nature. My favorite activity to do alone is ride my bike on the beautiful trails around Pittsburgh. I have 2 nephews and 2 nieces that make me laugh and smile when it seems nothing else can. I am dealing with several physical issues including Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, and Hashimoto's Disease. I've been divorced twice and am a survivor of domestic violence. My family is everything to me. Without their unconditional love and support I would not be here today. I'm 34 years old and work in the corporate retail world, but my life is not about all that. My life is about learning, growing, loving and discovering everyday thatI would be nowhere without my God.
I've decided recently to use my blog as a journal to share my life experiences. They've been traumatic and devastating for me to go through, but I know I'm not the only one. So, I want to share them in case there's just one person out there that may be encouraged by what I've gone through and how I am overcoming it all.
My goal here is to create connections as a result of authenticity and through vulnerability.
