Hello! Welcome to Sunshine and Munchkins! (And before you ask, no, this blog has nothing to do with The Wizard of Oz…) My name is Shani and I’m so glad you decided to stop by. I am mom to two beautiful kids, a girl (3) and a boy (1), who I get to stay at home with. They are both crazy, curious, happy kids and they keep me on my toes! I am also married to the best husband in the world. (Can a girl get any luckier?) I love to read, craft, scrapbook, DIY, cook/bake, dance, laugh, take pictures and soak up the sunshine any chance I get. I graduated in Marriage and Family Studies and love applying the things I learned in college to me and my family’s life. I love sharing and discussing new ideas and viewpoints and am fascinated by the way people think and their life experiences that got them to where they are now. I am a self-proclaimed “ambivert” so while I enjoy getting out of the house and doing things with family and friends, I’m also perfectly content to read a book for hours alone (which with 2 kids pretty much never happens, but I can dream, right?).
The idea to start a blog of my own has been in the back of my mind for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that I thought, ‘What the heck? Let’s do this thing! Maybe I’ve got something to say that someone else will find helpful.’ And I hope that’s the case. But I also want to hear from you!
On this blog you’ll find a little bit of everything, from recipes to crafts, holiday and seasonal activities to marriage and family topics, with a little bit of hair and beauty tips thrown in for good measure. I am not an expert in any of these areas, but I do have a passion for them.
So join me as I raise my little munchkins and search for and share the sunshine in this beautiful, crazy thing called life!
