Hello friend, I'm Shannon! A Yankee transplant loving life down here in Central Florida.
I Believe . . .
that everything happens for a reason - in always telling the truth, whether or not it's the answer you were looking for - that sometimes you have to fall before you can fly - despite everything, people are really good at heart - that if you're not willing to learn, no one can help you - the scent of your perfume sets the tone for the day - snuggling on the couch is severely underrated - in treating my home to fresh flowers - that every woman needs a little black dress - a road trip is the perfect weekend escape from work - paying it forward is about compassion, kindness and generosity - IN MYSELF!
A little more about me . . .
Best advice I've ever received: No rain, no rainbows! (from my dad) Life isn't always going to be sunshine but don't appreciate the best things without a little turmoil
Favorite personal development book: Worth Every Penny by Sarah Petty. It applies to my life both personally and professionally. (check it out here)
Favorite quote: To thine own self be true - Shakespeare
The perfect escape: I'm a foodie. I adore traveling and take a culinary tour of the of each new place I visit. It's the melody of flavors that is the heart of every city.
Celebrity I would most like to have a one-on-one date with: Gordon Ramsey - multi-Michelin starred chef, restaurateur, TV personality, and the man who taught me how to make scrambled eggs the right way (watch and learn HERE)
Guilty pleasure: A great steak with a big, bold glass of red wine
Current Theme Song: Love Myself by Hailee Steinfeld (see the video HERE)
What people underestimate about me: My time management skills. Most people always make a comment that I work so much, but I have better work life balance than most people that I know. I work hard but I play hard too!
Favorite way to wind down after a long day: Just me, my kitchen aid and a new recipe. Cookies, breads, muffins, cakes. Baking is love made visible.
2015 word of inspiration: SOAR!
