Hi! I’m Shannon, born and raised in New Jersey and I am lucky enough to be doing the same for my three children. I’m a former auditor and CPA and miss my career daily, but I’m too busy figuring out how to survive life beyond my head injury to dwell on it. Years of therapy have me appreciating my new purpose and I love being a resource for anyone who has experienced similar life changing circumstances.
I’m a minivan Mom of three that relishes in the growth and abilities my kids possess. Their love of numbers makes me proud and it amazes me every day how I can see myself in each of them. Being a Mom is one of my proudest accomplishments to date, particularly after having our brood after my injury. They have dragged me out of some of the darkest days of my life.
When I’m not listening to Moana (2016) for the 1,000th time (impressed that my five year old knows the words to the entire album, when I can’t remember one song) I am meal planning, crockpot cooking, and setting reminders about my life on my Apple iPhone and Applewatch . I spend lots of times nursing my littlest so I am always following new blogs, buying new products (thank you, Amazon!) and am guilty of making a number of “black out purchases,” that keep us guessing what’s inside when they arrive. I can’t resist a good deal.
I love to run, do yoga and spin. When I get a minute to myself I like to meditate or lock myself in the bathroom and eat M&Ms. I survive on coffee, lots of lists, reminders and somehow, on very little sleep.
So laugh with me, cry with me and leave me some wise words. Life takes a village, thanks for being part of mine.
