Welcome! I'm so glad you've stopped by, and I hope you'll be encouraged or inspired by your visit!

I'm Shannon, a sinner saved by the undeserved grace of Jesus Christ. My relationship with Christ is the most important in my life; it is the basis on which all of my other relationships exist. I am first and foremost, a Christian.

So what else am I?

A 30-year-old Anglophile, married to my very own (super handsome) Naval aviator, and mama to five sweet little ones --
"Little Man" born in 2010
"Rosa" born in 2012
Our sweet baby girl who is with Jesus (2013)
"Laddie" born in 2015
"Scout" born in 2017

I'm blessed to be able to stay at home with my sweet babies.

Crafting is my primary hobby, and sewing is definitely my primary craft (at least, that's what the thread snippets all over the floor would seem to indicate). I have expert seam-ripping skills, but let's not go into that... I'm a beginning knitter, because I needed another time-consuming hobby. *ahem*

I love reading, and some of my favorite authors include Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, J.R.R. Tolkien, Agatha Christie, and P.G. Wodehouse (apparently I like variety?). My taste in movies tends to be quirky (think Dean Spanley, The Winslow Boy, Penelope, and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events).

It's lovely to have you here, and I hope you have a blessed day!
