I'm, Shannon, an author, flower photographer, workshop presenter (blooming big through life's transitions) and healing arts practitioner. My husband, Michael, is my frequent travel partner — and he's owns his own company (marketing accounting services) and he's also a jazz guitarist. We currently live on three acres across from the Kettle Moraine State Forest and the miles of hiking trails in Eagle, WI. Our daughter, Grace, is 11-years-old, Waldorf-educated, loves oceans, the Chronicles of Narnia and wants to be an actor, a teacher or an ocean researcher when she grows up. We're non-smokers, kind, considerate, neat and veteran travelers (I used to edit a travel magazine!). We love to explore neighborhoods, find good local places to eat and walk to get a feel of a place. I'm from Ohio, and have also lived in Boston and New York City. Michael is a native Wisconsinite. Our favorite places: My grandparent's beach condo in Florida, Italy, Paris, New York, New England, Key West, Charleston, and exploring small towns across America. Five things I can't live without: my iPhone & iPad, my green smoothie in the morning, hugs from my family and nature.
