My name is Shauna and I hail from Connecticut. I have been an online blogger/content provider/author since January 2010. I am 40 years old and a mom to a 5-year-old boy. I have recently gotten back into art, and photography. I have a website portfolio for my photography: "Photography by Shauna-Nicole." Links for both sites can be found on my home page :). I also have a small Etsy shop called "Shauna-Nicole Creations."
When I am not writing, taking pictures, and doing art, I spend time with my son. I love to cook, read, catch up on sleep (LOL), and be outdoors.
Facts about me:
I have 4 autoimmune diseases, a spinal injury (it's been a long-term situation, since 2013).
I had my first poem published in 2002.
I am a secret reality TV fanatic.
I LOVE to garden. It's my favorite method of therapy!
My son is my best friend and my hero. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't be who I am today.
I am a HUGE fan of WWE's Attitude Era (and I mean HUGE! I can talk all things WWE for hours!)
My cat Patches was literally my best friend. She was 18 years old when she died in November. I miss her every day.
I am obsessed with tiny homes.
I have the worst luck when it comes to love, but I still have a lot to say about the subject.
I am a fan of country, alternative, metal, and rock music. Occasionally I listen to 90s boy bands (I'm a sucker for NKOTB, been a fan of theirs since 1990).
My all-time favorite song is "Don't Stop Believin,'" by Journey.
I am an earth science geek, and I have my high school's science center pin to prove it. I was a part of that club for two years.
I really am unfiltered in my thoughts and opinions. I've always said things no one else would have the testicular fortitude to say, and I sometimes don't think before I speak. Even I get surprised by the things that come out of my mouth lol!
My first female celeb crush was Jodie Sweetin.
I went through a goth phase in high school. While I'm not proud of that phase, I did produce some kick ass poetry.
When I was younger, I was a fan of Menudo..
I love wellness and spirituality.
According to my DNA ancestry kit results, I'm English, Portuguese, Irish, Italian, African, Lebanese, German, and Swedish.
My son is developmentally delayed and nonverbal. He is still the happiest and silliest human on Earth. He has the biggest heart, and he inspires me every second of everyday.
